Vogue Fashion Night Out 2016

Hi ya,

I just wanted to share my joy and happiness of being invited to participate in this super cool event. It’s organized by COOL HUNTER Italy and will take place in Milan in September. It’s gonna be a part of Vogue Fashion Night Out 2016, that always attracts lots of fashion lovers and professionals. I’m gonna participate in the competition in order to win and exhibit my leggings at the temporary shop for free. The winner will be chosen by a special judge panel, therefore you can’t really help me, but wish good luck 🙂

This is amazing opportunity for new brands and entrepreneurs from Italy to gain lots of exposure on international level. 
Here’s the email from COOL HUNTER Italy, in case you are fluent in Italian 🙂 Or, if you have your own brand, don’t hesitate to participate, cause you never know. If you don’t try, you will never win. 
Buongiorno,Ti ringraziamo per l’interesse mostrato per il nostro evento organizzato in occasione della Vogue Fashion Night Out 2016 che, come saprai, è di un evento di rilevanza internazionale che si svolge una volta all’anno e a Milano ha il suo punto nevralgico nel Quadrilatero della Moda. La VFNO attira ogni anno un pubblico vastissimo composto dai professionisti di settore e dagli appassionati di moda. Si tratta, quindi, di un’interessante occasione di visibilità soprattutto per i brand emergenti.

Come avrai avuto modo di leggere nella presentazione, stiamo progettando un evento serale (dalle 18 alle 23) all’interno di uno spazio espositivo ubicato nel Quadrilatero della Moda doveallestiremo un temporary shop per esporre/vendere i prodotti di abbigliamento e accessori moda di giovani brand Made in Italy. L’evento sarà accompagnato da un cocktail party e da dj set.

Abbiamo pensato per questa occasione di lanciare un CONTEST attraverso il quale regaleremo lo spazio espositivo ad un giovane brand, permettendogli di poter presentare gratuitamente i propri prodotti moda e il proprio brand.

And here’s my application for now, which still needs a lot of work.

COOL Hunter Italy application 

As far as women’s fashion goes, leggings are the most versatile and fashion adaptive bottom that a women can wear. So why not have a pair of original, one of a kind, unique and fun leggings in your wardrobe? Get a pair of fun COOL Leggings, made of high quality Italian cotton jersey and hand painted by me! Most of the leggings in my shop are in black, as that is the most popular color and the paintings stand out much more. But they can be made in different colors as well. 

NOTE: If you like the drawing on leggings, but you are not a leggings fan, don’t worry! From now on, for a little upgrade fee, you can get that painting on yoga pants or capri pants instead. 
The idea behind the COOL Leggings brand is to add a little bit of art to everyday apparel. COOL Leggings offer comfortable, original clothing and accessories. Every piece is hand made in my home workshop and all prints are based on my drawings, therefore each item is unique and different by its color tone or paint drops on the fabric.

The attached photos:
Photo Nr 1 represents my latest invention- Mommy and Me matching leggings. This is the most popular item in my shop at the moment. I do both- Mommy and Daughter designs, as well Mom and Son matching outfits.


Photo Nr 2 shows, how unique and original are my designs, cause they are all hand painted, therefore each piece is completely one of a kind. I offer all sizes, also Plus sizes and I accept custom orders, if a customer wants different color or to modify the design.


Photo Nr 3 represents my yoga line for yoga practitioners and yoga lovers. Yoga becomes more and more popular in all world, therefore I decided to create some yoga themed leggings and pants. 


Photo Nr 4 is a pair of maternity leggings. It’s not easy to buy fun maternity leggings. Mainly you just find plain color and very simple leggings. That is why I have created several colorful maternity leggings to cheer up mommies to be and let them look even more fabulous. 


What can I find at COOL Leggings store?

I offer over 100 items in my shop at the moment, including:

Cotton leggings

Yoga pants 

Mommy and Me outfits

Maternity leggings

Beanie hats

Babies/Toddlers/Kids leggings

Skirts 

Who makes the leggings? 

Me, Sandra.I am the Owner, Maker, Designer and Curator

My name is Sandra. I am a Latvian girl currently living in sunny Sardinia, Italy. Happily married, a mommy to A toddler and a newborn. I love creativity in people, originality, positive thinking, friendliness and being happy for little things.

How do you make the leggings?

I use only high quality cotton jersey, made in Italy ( 92% cotton and 8% elastane). Perfect material for comfy pants.

I use eco friendly Speedball water based fabric ink to paint the prints on leggings and yoga pants. Colourful and fun!

All together it is a three day process to create a pair of COOL Leggings. First, I pre wash the fabric. When it’s dry, I cut out the pattern, hand paint it and leave it to dry again for a day (it depends on the design). At the end I sew it all together and iron for several minutes to let the painting set properly.

I use Pfaff Hobby Lock 2.0. overlock sewing machine to sew leggings, yoga pants and beanies.
