Nadia Piechestein is a London based sustainable Fashion Designer reimagining traditional mending to create contemporary fine fashion that challenges longevity and creativity.
Her brand, TLZmovement, was one of the first ethical brands in Argentina, were she is from. Her sustainable approach combines textiles, slow fashion techniques and even a zero stock and waste production. The last collection brings together the most exquisite embroidery combined with natural fibers weaving in collaboration with local makers next to the studio in Isle of Dogs. You can bring them a garment and they will rework it with any of the techniques they use. If you want to learn how to do it they also give workshops where you can weave a piece and then sew it in the garment. Isn’t it fantastic?! You can participate every year during London Craft Week, Festivals or in their amazing studio space in Craft Central.
The last collection called Conservatory was exhibit in The Lab, the Fashion District Hub during the prelaunch of The Reclaimery platform. Also during The Festival of Natural Fibers the next October 2022.
The next 2 projects are London Fashion Week and the launching of a new product in collaboration with Freeweaver Saori studios. That means that you will see spectacular weaving combined with TLZ magic once again!
The reworking service, workshops and products are available all year long.
Reworked clothes: bring us a garments and we will reconstruct it! We work only with Up-cycling and reworking techniques on preloved garments and Textile Designers dead stock materials.
