If clothes could speak, what would that timeless piece say to you?
I would want my clothing to be like a poem, sweet whispers softly showing me the bond of love woven within the materials around my body. I believe that clothing should feel like a love letter from your soul or words of wisdom from your spiritual mentor. One of my favorite poems by Kahlil Gibran describes it beautifully.
The poem would be like a Kahlil Gibran The Prophet
“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.”
I had the pleasure to sit with Suzanne creator of Dino Apparel and Melissa from Planted in Nature for basically The Best Coffee Date Ever! Strangers being pulled together with the common interest of love and passion for life. We giggled, shared stories and drank A lot of Cortado’s. As we bonded within those 3 hours we spoke about heath and shared how we’ve come so far in life to simply #livesoftly in the divine masculine and sacred feminine form of power. One of the most fulfilling meet-ups!
Behind the Scenes of our girl talk, Suzanne told us some of her secrets about Dino Apparel and her “Why” . Let me tell you I only fell in love with this woman’s passion and Dino as a brand after her conviction! I adore my Caftan and know this has been touched by mother earth every step of the way and that makes it’s beyond special.
“I immersed myself in finding the right fabrics in downtown LA, and what I learned is that there are textiles you can buy off the shelf, and there are textiles you can make yourself. The ones we can make are special. We can trace the origins of the fabrics, from the pulp of the tree to the fiber to the finished fabric. We know how the tree is harvested, how the fiber is extracted, and how the process impacts the environment. I knew that tree-pulp fibers were leading innovation in transforming the textile industry, and became fascinated by the process.” Suzanne Dino Apparel.
“When I say I designed DINO for the ‘runway of our lives’ what I really mean is the super-highway made of roads that cross over each other in a web of confusion. As real women, we are in perpetual motion. We’re in the car, at the desk, in the aisle of the grocery store, going to and from the gym, in the kitchen, at our kids’ school; our runway is never pretty and is ever-changing. So my goal is to continue to offer designs that make a woman feel pretty, even at her lowest point of the day. To give her the perfect outfit for rolling around on the floor with her child, and at the same time feel sexy enough to dust herself off and grab a glass of wine with friends. DINO is more than studio-to-street or athleisure or yoga. It’s clothing for wellness from fiber to the fascia, and everywhere in between.
Someone once told me that “There is magic sewn into the seams of the clothes”. That stuck with me because what it said was exactly what I had hoped to achieve, which was to create clothing that was not about me or the brand, but was about the end-use —you.
I do believe that natural fibers hold that magic because they are not man-made and they carry energy. Of course, we are not claiming to be a healing product, but I do believe that the natural fibers, combined with the absolute passion and love that goes into making the clothing, and the respect we have for our makers and supply chain, all combines to create products that not only feel soft because of the tactility, but also have a positive vibration that people feel because of the way they are made.
