Mortar & Pestle

Reason #14875448 why Vancouver is awesome? All the local talents! A while back, i came across this beautiful clothing line called Mortar & Pestle, and I just had to tell you guys about it.

Mortar & Pestle was launched in March 2011 by the talented Jill Zdunich after she finished her Fashion Design program at Blanche MacDonald. 

"I knew that I wanted to launch my own line right away after school, so I did! It's been a serious roller coaster of mistakes, wins, personal feats overcome, road blocks (financial and emotional)....but I'm still here! 

Right now, I'm the sole designer behind m&p and do 90% of all the work-- from initial design illustrations, to pattern drafting, pattern grading, fabric sourcing, cutting, sample sewing and I share the production sewing with a seamstress. It's a lot to juggle!" Jill said.

The designs are simple, yet timeless. Check out the website here to find out where you can purchase those lovely pieces

In the meantime, check out those pieces from the Spring Summer 2012 collection :)

Hope everyone has a happy Canada day weekend! xx

Jill is also teaming up with her partner Chris and launching an accessories and home decor line called 'Olde Port Goods & Provisions' this Fall. I'm pretty sure it will be just as amazing as m&p. Good luck, Jill and Chris :)
