Aussie designer Fleur Wood has a darling name and background. Fleur Wood spent
two years living in a nunnery in the Indian Himalayas designing fabrics and
textiles for a culture-preservation project sponsored by the Tibetan exile
government. When she returned to Australia, she started her own namesake label.
For her line, Fleur Wood mixes her love of textiles with the idea that something
should be given back. All garments are ethically manufactured, no animal products
are used, and a percentage of company profits go to charity. Fleur Wood travels
four times a year through India and Europe to hunt down the best textiles
and to get inspiration from the flea markets in Paris to the rich color pallet
of the Middle East. Ethnic prints mixed with hand-stitched French embroidery
give the designs a contemporary bohemian edge.
DailyCandy is a Fleur Wood fan. They say her romantic collection of
delicately embroidered dresses and tops in shades of white causes a flurry
