Virginia Woolf famously said, “a feminist is any woman who tells the truth about her life”. We are here to tell some truths.
But they can be deceptive. At least they were for me when I first started Oiselle - and was just a wee designer in training. I still saw the body as a series of logical lines and measurements…hips, inseam, rise, waist. Check, check, check. And that somehow the sum of the angles and numbers would produce the ideal garment. And thus many of my early creations had more 90 degree angles than I care to admit.
