Shabd Is Her Name
Designer Shabd Simon-Alexander creates limited edition collections based on simple shapes with attention to fabric combinations and compositions. Her approach to working with fabrics draws from minimalist art, quiltmaking, and the folk costume tradition of beginning one dress with the remnants from the last.
After studying art and photography at university, she continued her exploration into textiles in both a traditional and art based context, honing her skills in embroidery, weaving, fabric dyeing and tailoring, and exploring the roots of these traditions. Ever since, Shabd's aesthetic has been influenced by a sense of history, though she continues to look forward as she creates new collections. Her collection fuses two worlds, bringing hand dyed and hand painted fabric together with classic designs.
