Mono

mono

Mono is a Vancouver-based label established in 2005. Heather Martin, who also teaches design and textiles at Vancouver Community college, is the designer behind this project.

Mono es una marca establecida en Vancouver en 2005. Heather Martin, quién también enseña diseño y textiles en la universidad de Vancouver, es el cerebro detrás de éste proyecto.

Mono isn't the typical clothing line. First of all, it doesn't follow the frenetic pace of today's fashion. The intricate handmade fabrics prove the clothes are made to last.

Mono no es la típica marca de ropa. Para empezar, no sigue el ritmo frenético de la moda de hoy en día. Las intrincadas telas confeccionadas a mano demuestran que la ropa está hecha para durar.

Mono is also linked with art: "througout this time mono has grown a dedicated following working in collaboration with select design companies and artists such as Douglas Coupland, Yumi Eto and the Lifetime Collective. Within the most recent collaboration,Clothe/Breathe, mono joined talents with a choreographer and a sound artist to create a performance installation."

Además Mono está muy vinculada con el arte: "a lo largo de todo este tiempo mono ha desarrollado una serie de colaboraciones con un selecto conjunto de compañías de diseño y artistas como Douglas Coupland, Yumi Eto y de Lifetime Collective. Entre las colaboraciones más recientes está Clothe/Breathe, en la que mono unió talentos con un coreógrafo y un artista sonoro para crear una performance."
