About this project

I am set out to design my first collection in Khadi cotton for the Spring/Summer 2012 season

It will be a special collection of dresses from my line, a fortes design.

Khadi is a cotton cloth from India made almost completely without the use of electricity.

It is woven from hand-twisted cotton yarns on ancient 'pit' looms.

I recently was reminded of Gandhi's teachings and how he spent his days, spinning his threads to make his handmade homespun cotton.

He was a strong advocate of Khadi.My Khadi collection is going to have a very whimsical feelIt will also tell a story of hard work and human virtue

I had been searching for a great Khadi source for years and I finally found one; its funny that it coincided with my new love for Gandhi.

I will buy the Khadi cotton and have the samples made.

The money is for

-fabric

-producing the samples

-show to showcase the collection

-photo shoot

-trade show

-travel to trade show
