LONDON, Aug 16, 2009 / FW/ — Usually, it’s the UK who exports their singing talents to the U.S.; with Taylor Swift, it’s the other way around. The American country pop singer-songwriter is finding herself a lot of followers in the British Isles to the point that she landed the cover on the September 2009 issue of Bliss, a popular UK magazine for teens.
For the Bliss cover, Taylor Swift chose to wear the striped bustier “Rita” gown by Untitled 11:11 that was created in eco-friendly Khadi fabric by Laurel Anderson and David Peck, the design duo behind Untitled 11:11.
Both graduates of Parsons-Paris School of Design, Laurel and David premiered the first Untitled 11:11 collection in September 2008 immediately gathering a cult following for their completely sustainable fashion philosophy.
Fusing European high fashion with American sensibility, Laurel Anderson and David Peck aim to continuously create eco-friendly collections using sustainable and natural fibers such as hemp, bamboo and silk.
They also exclusively employ fair trade fabrics, low-impact dyes and printing methods. Carefully selected vintage buttons and trimmings make each garment unique, as do seasonal collaborations with local artists, inspiring hand-painted and digital prints.
The result is a sophisticated and age-less collection, which is quickly becoming a favorite of celebrities such as Taylor Swift.
