Whilst in Vietnam earlier this year I had some clothes made in the wonderful small tailors, Flame Tree on Pasteur st, Drist 1, HCMC .
There are many tailors throughout Vietnam but it's difficult to find one with such skill and understanding of design. They also carry a collection of ready made pieces in beautiful hand blocked and loomed textiles. A real find thanks to my lovely niece Emily.
The shirt above which I love wearing was created by them out of some of my 'sing' ribbon scarves and 'sing' classic sq scarves.
They also made the dress I wore to the International Opera awards ceremony at the Savoy Theatre in London using material from their own collection. See below image.
THANK YOU FLAME TREE and the wonderful people who work there.
