We get so happy when the smartest, most talented sustainably-minded designers list their items on RecycledBride.com. The latest brilliant designer to join our ranks is Crystal Brooke McCann of SilkUtopia. Crystal hand-paints repurposed silk dresses, using brilliant color, cutting-edge couture designs, and even, on occasion, fallen parrot feathers that the designer collected over one year. <!–more–>
“There are a lot of beautiful, beautiful dresses in the world, and I just don’t see the need to create more waste,” says Crystal. “My wish when people wear my clothing is that they feel good and they feel original and different, and you really have to be…not afraid to stand out in a crowd.” Hear more from Crystal in the video below.
We’re in love with Crystal’s exuberant, bright dresses and the unique style they’ll bring to your wedding day or special occasion. You can wear her gowns as a wedding dress, bridesmaids dress, and/or on your honeymoon, and you’ll want to wear them again and again afterwards too.
