Wearing : The Bonfire Cardigan



I've been terribly self indulgent when designing pieces for my own brand, Bohemian Traders. It's been super fun coming up with the perfect wardrobe though, right down to the cut and colour of each garment. The Bonfire Cashmere Cardigan is one such treasure. In all of my years of rampant consumerism I've never managed to find a cardigan that I can wear both buttoned up and un-buttoned. My hips are always too wide and muffin top too protruding and quite frankly, it's annoying. I just want to button my cardigan up!

The Bonfire Cardigan is designed to be worn close to the skin and has a lovely deep V neckline that is flattering when buttoned up. It also follows the natural line of a woman's body, you know, out at the hips. It's warm, good quality and timeless, even if I do say so myself!

    1. Yes, I am. It's a massive undertaking from conceptualisation of a garment to sampling to tweaking the design and getting the fabrics right to manufacture to branding to sale. It's been A LOT of hard work. More work that I ever thought possible but it's also been very rewarding.

    1. Hey Rin,

      The majority of the garments are made by a small community workshop in India. I'm having a limited amount of clothing produced in small quantities in China also.

    1. Thanks lady! I use the term 'designing' loosely. I'm in no way a 'fashion designer' but the garments are made to my specifications and requirements.
