    I guess TriggerDiscipline was right, she wants to go the way of the Paul Harnden.

    Yes, also there some pieces at DAAD DANTONE in Milan, and they said that she doesn't want to appear in online store.

    images still available through google cache if anyone who can't visit a store wants to view them...

    Whole secrecy thing is frustrating, contrived and totally pointless.

    A lot of pieces are uploaded (with m_moria footwear on top of that) to project_314 instagram (an affiliate boutique).

    Handled it in person in London, it was really nice and deep tailoring (can I use this term for knitwear?), especially the sweater. I wonder how it will look like in 1-2 years when silver will be oxidized already.

    Obviously the metal textile has piqued my attention, I'd love to know more about the application in this collection. Silver has a melting point of 960C, so I would imagine that it would just burn any textile it came into contact with. I have no idea how else you could liquify silver without melting it the traditional way. Very interesting!
    some do it fast, some do it better in smaller amounts.

    What is deep tailoring?

    I'm curious as well, although i would imagine it was woven using fine spun silver thread. Ann D. has used metal blended in with her fabrics in the past so I'm sure it is quite possible to increase the metal fiber %.

    In regards to the oxidization, if the garment is regularly worn, it likely won't show much tarnish over time. You'll have to leave it for a while. Some silver products are coated as well to prevent oxidization... not sure if Deepti has done this as well.

    Library. I've asked to make a photo of sweater to share and got an immediate rejection from the staff. Not that I was unable to do it in a fitting room but whatever.

    Although I respect a designer's stance to remain as off-line as possible, from a business and long-term viability perspective, online sales are the way the world works these days. Time and time again, physical stores have folded because of the move towards international (ie- phone call purchases or online purchases... both reliant on digital images) or at least off-site purchases.

    It would be a pleasure to be able to see and handle garments in stores, but with low production and only half a dozen stores in the world carrying the work, it keeps the work out of the hands and eyes of those that would appreciate (and likely buy) it.

    When I handled the silver sweater it did not look like or feel like silver thread. It was made of polyamide and did not look like it was spun with silver thread. It's likely done by some means of electrodeposition. So basically an aqueous solution of a silver salt is made(silver nitrate being the likely suspect due to moderate light stability, water solubility and accessibility) then the garment is immersed in it and either an eletrical or chemical reduction is initiated whereby the silver precipitates out in fine colloids and binds to the material. Although I can't be certain of this, it seems logical because the reaction can take place at room temperature and under mild reproducible conditions.

    well....duh. i mean everybody knows that.

    Ha C. I just reasoned it be like chrome plating plastic, which is basically the same method. I could be entirely off the mark though.

    I don't remember it, sorry. Try to mail Project 314, they are fast and reliable (314projectmoscow@gmail.com) or any other boutique stocking Deepti.
