The range is the first from a Dorset boutique owner, Penny Callaghan who wanted to create a limited edition collection especially for boutiques.
She was inspired by her Mother’s garden and their close mother & daughter bond. It fulfils a long-term dream to create her own slow fashion range.
“For me, it’s about cherishing an item of clothing, valuing it as a work of art in its own right and getting total pleasure from wearing it time and time again,” says Penny.
All the new styles are created using sublimation printing which minimises fabric wastage. The first collection will include summer styles made of Viscose which is a sustainable fabric.
From My Mother’s Garden has created designs from photographs taken by Penny and her partner Alistair Homer, in her mother’s Devon garden.
“I hope the colours and vibrancy of the designs will bring as much joy as the inspiration behind them,” says Penny.
Our first design, the Reflections Robe, is based on a rippling water reflection with Beech Trees overhead which gives it an almost impressionist painting quality.
