I've been wanting to post about this fabulous designer for ages: Sika Designs. Sika is a UK-based label who draw their inspiration from West African prints and designs. Their fabric is all sourced from Ghana where it is made using traditional methods, such as tie dye and wax prints. I love the way their collections are inspired from traditional African prints and colours but with modern and quirky designs and styling. My favourite Sika collections are kaleidoscope, wonderland and fusion. Here are some fun pictures from the kaleidoscope and wonderland collections:
|Sika: Scope Wrap Dress|
|Sika: Wonderland Shirt Dress|
And some more versions of these pretty dresses in various farbics:
The fusion collection is a bit more subdued than the kaleidoscope and wonderland collections but nevertheless beautiful:
|Sika: Fusion Empire Line Dress|
|Sika: Bow Shirt Dress|
Sika is a wonderful place for June Challenge summer dress inspiration, especially if you want to bring some colour into your summer wardrobe. By the way, three new people have joined our challenge: Dibs and the Machine (love the name of your blog!), two hippos, and Shelly. You can join our little Flickr group too: info here. I have also added a list of participating bloggers underneath the June Challenge badge in the right-hand column of my blog. Let me know if I forgot someone! Keep up the sewing and have a nice June evening or day, wherever you are...
