Madame Tây 2015

Hello and happy 2015!

First up, thank you to everyone who has visited Madame Tây here and on our Facebook page lately. The last few months have been an important time of reflection for the Madame Tây team. We have had a few life changes, a few geographical transitions and also some exciting developments with Madame Tây along the way.

This post is just a quick update on what we're up to and what's in store for 2015.

TRAVELS:

Steph, who was living in Vietnam when we launched Madame Tây, is now living in Montreal, Canada.

Steph. weeeeeeee!

Cara, who oversaw all our clothing production in Dakar, Senegal, moved back to Melbourne for much of 2014, but is now back in Dakar again as of this month!

MORE CLOTHES:

So now that Cara is back in Dakar, we are really excited to be preparing another round of Madame Tây clothing. Cara has been up to her ears in fabrics, meeting people, visiting tailors, sourcing buttons and zips at the markets, while the rest of us have been skyping and emailing madly.

I'll leave Cara to blog in more detail about the fabrics we'll be working with, but there will be plenty more wax print, and possibly some beautiful hand-made fabrics! 

At the moment we're in the early sampling stages of production. We'll keep you updated.

In the meantime, you can follow our journey here on instagram, where we go by the name @madametayclothing.
