It is with pleasure and great excitement for me to announce Walking In May's EXCLUSIVE vintage Kimono X Cheongsam by The Lady General (post) has finally been launched!
A little while back, I discovered the classic Wang Cheongsam by a Singapore based online shop specialising in modern designs of Cheongsam (Qipao) with a love of fabric as well as tailoring. Receiving the dress for a review I was struck by the chic sheen of silk and wearable lovely wiggle cut....the enthusiasm for the Cheongsam then took on life in my discussion with owner and designer Elaine....leading to a Walking In May exclusive. [Catch up with the post here: review-2014-lady-general] What I really like about The Lady General (here) as an online shop is the ethical vision and desire to make a difference, which is more than evident in this new range of Cheongsam for Walking In May....not only are the fabric beautiful vintage Kimono silks found in Japan which means they are highly prized up-cycling limited edition pieces, each piece is actually handmade by a tailor from a social enterprise called 'The Mother and Child Project' (here).
So hurry over to The Lady General (link) to take first pick of the Walking In May exclusive Kyoto range, as once these Vintage fabric are gone, they will be gone and it won't be possible to source the same fabric again. Don't forget your 10% off discount by mentioning 'Walking In May'....now there is no reason not to treat yourselves! Wishing all you lovely darlings an absolutely fabulous mid-week!
