✧･ﾟ: *✧ All About Me ✧*:･ﾟ✧
Hi hi ~ I’m Francesca Newman, 29, founder & sole-woman behind Delta Of Phoenix, my dreamy, iconic + empowering Womxnswear Brand.
Delta Of Phoenix is first and foremost a sustainable womxnswear brand ~ luxury, colourful, unique & evocative. I hope to introduce a new kind of glamour. I hope to design garments that embody self-love; garments that make the person feel glowing & dangerously appealing. Each collection will evolve aesthetically, as there is always an element of meraki within my collections. Overall, for me Delta Of Phoenix is always unapologetically feminine, innovative & inspired by the wonderful womxn I’m surrounded by. I hope to design garments that fulfil guilty pleasures.
All garments are always handmade by me in my London-based studio, & all garments are made to order. Most garments take from 4 to 6 hours for me to create from start to finish. My making process includes sourcing local luxury fabrics, designing & altering zero-waste patterns, creating sustainable zero waste patterns from scratch, cutting out the fabric, sewing the garment, labelling, steaming & then packaging beautifully with a personalised handwritten note included. I’ve introduced the bespoke-sizing--for-no-extra-cost element to each Delta Of Phoenix design as I hope to eliminate label-fear culture, & with my past seamstress experience this is something I have the power to do.
NOTHING CHANGES IF NOTHING CHANGES
I create garments using luxury long-lasting fabrics & trims, locally sourced from UK based independent stores. Delta Of Phoenix garments leave minimal to zero fabric waste, due to the way I design each garment to tesselate during the cutting process.
I want all of Delta's customers to totally adore their garments. Please let me know how to make the Delta Of Phoenix garment of your dreams via the BESPOKE page.
