Mary Downs- Re-united Designs

I personally design and create every item in the Re/United Designs collection. Each fashion accessory is 100% handmade, up cycled, one-of-a-kind, and lovingly sourced from vintage finds; hence "everything old is new again".
I have always been passionate about making "something new from something old" and the related concepts of reusing and upcycling. Re/United Designs allows me to pursue these ideals and provides me with the perfect creative opportunity that I long for.
I launched my business in May 2014 and work from a studio in my London Ontario home.
And I love what I do every day!

Handwoven- details

With my fine art background, including textile studies, I use my love of nature

 and fabric for inspiration. Wearable art appeals to my practical side while 

allowing for limitless creativity. The enjoyment I receive from revamping 

memorabilia and recyclables into practicalities is a challenge as fulfilling as 

creating anew. My work is anywhere from practical to zany. Jeanne - Marie

Paddy Kelleher Designs

Patricia Richardson is a Canadian textile artist, born in the Niagara Peninsula. Following studies in fashion design, fabric design, embroidery and millinery at various institutions such as The Academy, Sheridan, Fanshawe and George Brown Colleges and attaining a BA from Western University, she pursued a career as a costume designer. In this field she grew practiced in a wide variety of artistic textile techniques. A few years ago, Patricia turned her hand to millinery and accessories. Using her own patterns and designs, Patricia dyes and paints the fabrics, cuts and manipulates them into shape and combines them with techniques such as embroidery, beading and pleating into unique wearable art pieces. All of Patricia's items are individually hand made in her sunny studio in London, Ontario.

Aroos- Henna Art

Henna Body Art is an ancient art form which dates back over 5,000 years,commonly practiced in India, Pakistan, North Africa, and south East Asia and the Middle East. It is worn traditionally for celebrations and other auspicious occasions such as weddings and other religious festivals. Henna is a wet paste in a cone that is applied to the skin and the person should take care while the application dries for about 15-20 min. It looks a lot like cake- decorating! As it dries, the skin absorbs the henna dye. The paste dries and flakes and then falls off either by itself or when lightlly rubbed off, leaving the henna stain on the skin. Henna takes about 48 hrs. to reach its full colour. It begins as an orange stain then deepens to a reddish colour.
Depending on the size and detail of the design it will take anywhere from 5 min. to a couple of hrs to apply. For best results the paste has to left on untill completely dried, being careful not to smudge it. It's a pleasant. soothing and relaxing experience. Sometimes the skin may feel slightly cool where the paste is applied and this is because the henna draws your surrounding body heat into the paste as it dries. Henna has been safely been used around the world for thousands of years. Allergies are very rare. The Henna Cone which I most commonly use is made in India by a very prominent manufacturer est. in 1880, exporter and supplier of herbal ayervedic cosmetics and herbal henna. I use only natural henna made from natural ingredients in the mixes for pregnant women.

Yogurt Culture is a fresh new line of accessories and apparel for the vigorous

powerful life in the now. Yogurt Culture draws influence from the power of

influences shine through in the chosen materials, textile patterns and 

modern designs that comprise Yogurt Culture’s wide variety of products.

West. Eva Bardelcik studied fashion design at Ryerson University, Toronto,
