Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit's...that time of year again...and, not to be a downer...but honestly, it's a tough one for the environment. It can be a struggle to negotiate doing enough for those you love this time of year, and being eco-friendly and sustainable as possible. That's why we at R.R.Memorandum have decided to create not only our very own gift certificate campaign for the holiday season, but also give you some hints and tips about how to make your frilly holiday season greener! Since we, after all, are trying out very best to be as sustainable as possible...we wanted to share some of our favourite tips and tricks with you, our lovely supporters!
Several weeks ago (though it seems like MUCH longer ago to us), we finally celebrated the launch of both our new collections by throwing our first, elaborate and unforgettable event, Regal Rose. Admittedly, this event had been, like Raschel, been delayed by many, many months owing to Miss Rona. However, that bought us much more time to make it more elaborate than we could have imagined it would be!
After a delay of more than a year due to Miss Rona, the day finally arrived where we were able to get dressed in our best oldschool finery! But this wasn't your average, run-of-the-mill oldschool-themed EGL meetup. This was Raschel. On the 29th August, we arrived at the Dukes Hotel, Mayfair (very fancy indeed!), with out 35mm analogue and polaroid cameras at the ready, all adorned in our finest...well...Raschel-covered lace-monster dresses.
Earlier this summer, we made avideo to celebrate Autism Pride Day, in which our designer Katherine talked a little bit about her life as an autistic business owner. The messages included in this video are so important to remember for everyone, neurodivergent or not: looking after your mind and taking time foryouis as important as oreven more importantthan working hard.
This month's Bay Area Kei Bibliotheca theme was DIY July, and we knew we'd have something to say about this one! We've been excited for weeks about hosting an Otome Sewing Bee workshop this month on upcycling basic t-shirts into cutsews! As a sustainable fashion brand, R.R.Memorandum believes it is of paramount importance that we are able to do our bit to educate our supporters about ways in which it is possible to be sustainable with fashion consumption. In that vein, we were extremely delighted to host such a workshop!
