Welcome to the editorial of the sustainable wedding dress SÁ, managed by @veinteysiete.
The slow bride
For the creation and production of this editorial, a team of creatives was brought together to show you a different approach to standard wedding dresses. This editorial presents a slow bride, a design full of personality, for environmentally conscious brides who are committed to a unique and different design. This sustainable wedding dress is completely hand-woven and was presented at the Sustainable Fashion Conferences and Fashion Show: “Slow Fashion: The Positive Change for Planet and People”, an event organized by the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa, where different conferences were held to raise awareness on the polluting impact of fashion and propose practical alternatives to protect the environment.
The raw material used for this sustainable dress was: native Spanish Merino wool, provided by the Spanish company Dlana (Madrid). D´lana https://www.dlana.es/whose project aims to promote wool of Spanish origin and thus promote the much-needed transhumance. The wedding dress was mainly made of this material. It was hand-woven by local weavers Ana and Lola for four weeks: @tejedorasanayloli. Both of them live very close by the creative space of the designer SÁ, it was a pleasure to work with them.
It is a unique, special and limited project
Merino’s material is very unusual in bridal aesthetics. It provides comfort, flexibility and does not create any type of discomfort on the skin. SUSANA ÁLVAREZ took the typical bridal aesthetic out of context, opting for another nationally accessible material.
The designer SÁ captured her cosmopolitan, timeless vision and her distinctive comfort factor. Merino wool can be a great alternative to silk, artificial or synthetic materials (highly polluting).
he crown was designed and hand-woven by LUCIA DE GUSTÍN http://www.luciadegustin.com with a knitting machine whose raw material belongs to the company D´lana. he wings of the centre back are made of GreenCel http://www.greencel.es/, an artificial fiber made of cellulose from FSC managed trees and developed in a closed circuit with a solvent that is almost 100% recovered. Susana used it as brushstrokes on the sleeves and skirt of the dress in order to connect her design with that of Lucia. SÁ has been part of AMSE (Asociación de Moda Sostenible de España) since 2018.
