George Gabrielle Couture Goes Green in 2009

The 2009 Collection of George Gabrielle Couture will be green. All garments will be made with organic cotton whenever possible.

I am experimenting with natural plants derived dyes at the moment. Today I'm using coffee grinds to achieve brown color. I will be expermenting with tons of plants until the end of the year and perfect my dyeing recipes. I am so looking forward to doing this collections.

I will soak my fabric overnight in the dye, so tomorrow morning I will see the result. I will post here when the fabric is done :). I can't wait! :)

ST. Jude

I emailed ST. Jude's Children Research Hospital and asked if they accept hats and bandanas donations for their patients who lost their hair because of illness. They said they do.

I did request for them to take pics of the donation either with patients, or maybe with just a couple of staff, to show our donators and out hard working volunteers that the donations arrive there. But they said that they can't do that :(. I'm a bit dissapointed because I've been so loyal to them, I'm a monthly donator of their hospital. I just don't understand why they can't do it.

More Donator

Just received an email from, and they said they will mail out some fabrics to me this Friday for the bandana project. Yay! I am so pleased to see the community get together like this and do something for a good cause.

Sneak Peek Fashion Republic's Fashion Week Launch

Here's another sneak peek for another launch, this time is for the modeling group I created. We're having "Fashion Week" launch from Oct. 20th - Nov. 3rd to showcase our new models.

I fell in love with this fabric the first time I saw it. It is pale lime Giorgio Armany Fabric, made in Italy, and it is the best and most luxurious linen I've ever touched in my life. I used Amy Butler's coriander fabric to make the fern applique. We all know that linen is natural fiber, so I thought the fern will add an organic feel to it. And my photographer shot this with the woods background, and makes the dress feels much more earthy, thanks Angela!

The dress' silhouette is pretty clean and simple. Inspired by one of my favorite actresses of all time Audrey Hepburn. It feels a bit vintage but very updated. Super versatile and can be worn anytime anywhere, and for any age. To schools, parties, malls, etc, and pair it with tights, leggings, pants, etc.

This dress will be custom made from size 2 - 7. And as usual bigger size is always available with additional fee. If you want to get this dress, feel free to contact me. Fabric is very limited, and once it's gone, this garment will not be recreated anymore.

Thank you to my beautiful model Maiya and her photographer mom Angela for modeling and taking pics of this piece.

Sneak Peek The Boutique Lounge Launch

This is a sneak peek of my garment I'm going to use on TBL launch on Oct 27th. This piece is an update of my vintage chic line. I made a retro inspired dress early this year, and it was very popular, evertime I listed it, it was sold. So I decided to update the silhouette a bit, and instead using solid colors I used print. And I LOVE this powder blue damask print. I also LOVE white, to me it always compliments and pops any colors in a chic way. So I used the solid white on the ruffled yoke.

The faux buttons are made out of sky blue velvety beads. It has invisible side pockets that blend with the side seams, and the dress has a zipper closure on the back. It is lined with 100% cotton for comfort.

It is a shirtdress so it is very versatile, can be worn anywhere, with anything, and for any age. To schools, parties, malls, etc, and pair it with tights, leggings, pants, shorts, etc. Will be custom made from size 2 - 7. Bigger sizes is available upon request, please contact me first for a quote for bigger sizes.

If you'd like to have this dress before it is listed on Oct. 27th, feel free to contact me too :)

Thank you to my beautiful model Laycee and her photographer mom Gillian for modeling and taking pics of this piece.

Bandanas for Children with Cancer

I just joined a group on called Littlest Heroes Project, their website is

Anyway, I asked the leader for a way for me to donate. And Felicia, the leader, said that I could donate hats and bandanas for children with cancer. She'll be the one who send this bandanas to them or to her local hospitals.

So, a couple of weeks from now I will make some bandanas. And the best part is Amy Butler Fabric will be sending me some fabric samples to make bandanas out of. I am so excited. I LOVE Amy Butler's fabrics, and I think these will make super cute and chic bandanas, something that they'll treasure, and the fun prints hopefully will help cheer these children.

I'll post here again when the fabrics arrive.
