FASHION PERSONALITY

creative services

From years of creating my own brand Dee Silkie, I have learned many useful tips/tricks when it comes to online marketing. I not only create my own fashion/accessory lines but I also help people gain exposure with what they are doing creatively. With social media marketing, content creation, event planning, and styling (with my hand dyed silks of course!) I have been able to create a solid foundation for my brand and I am confident I can do the same for you.

TESTIMONIAL: 

Dee's knowledge of branding and social media content is undeniable. She has been so easy to work with and encouraging from day one. Dee has helped me grow my audience, organize my content, and focus on the brand we are creating. In the wild world of social media, we need more people like Dee who can support small brands, help them get organized and stay focussed on creating strong content with direction. Thanks to Dee Silkie, I have skills and knowledge I didn't have before and the confidence to keep moving my brand forward for myself and my readers.

Testimonial: 

Dee Silkie has been an immense source of inspiration and support for me over that past three years. She first approached me to collaborate on a project involving several other designers, models, make-up artists, hairstylists and photographers in 2014. From this experience, and every one of Dee’s projects that followed, I developed a remarkably vast network of fashion-minded creatives. Not only was I lucky enough to work with Dee’s BEAUTIFUL hand-dyed silk, but also given the freedom to pursue my own aesthetic, always with warm and encouraging feedback and LOTS of exposure!
I remember the day I googled myself and my location and the first few rows of images were all of projects I had collaborated on with Dee! Her dedication to my success motivated me onward when I felt I was falling behind or lacking vision and her social media savviness has helped me share my work to a much broader audience than I could have imagined.
I hope to continue to work with Dee Silkie and her stunning silk fabrics again, and I am so very grateful for all of the opportunities and experience with which she has provided me.

custom fabric dying

Do you have a project that involves truly unique fabric that you just can't find in a store? Dee Silkie loves to work with clients developing one of a kind, beautiful fabrics for various projects and collaborations including curtains, figure skating/dance wear, bedding, fashion collections, and fabric yardage!

TESTIMONIAL: 

It's always a pleasure working with Dee. Not only does she love what she does, she wants the people she works/collaborates with, to love what they do as well. She brings enthusiasm, passion and creativity to the table. As a fashion designer, having the luxury of working with her beautiful hand dyed fabrics has been beneficial.

I would not be where I am had I not met her. She inspires and lifts your spirits. Dee wants to see everyone reach their potential. If she can help you with that, she will. Never thinking of just herself, she doesn't hesitate to reach out when an opportunity arises. She has included my designs (made with her silks) in numerous fashion shoots and I have met many people in my field because Dee introduced me and got me involved in projects. By doing this, she helped expand my horizons and opened doors that may have otherwise never been opened.

Us meeting was kismet. We were recommended to each other by different people and the timing couldn't have been better. I was looking for unique fabric and she needed a fashion designer. Since that first meet she has supplied me with some of the most beautiful hand dyed /printed fabrics I have ever worked with, thus elevating my designs. One particular example is a red dress I made in 2016 for the Heart and Stroke Foundations Red Dress Heart Truth Gala. She hand dyed roses on about four metres of fabric. It took her days to get them to her level of perfect and the result was phenomenal. I received a multitude of compliments and my dress was next level because of her hard work. Another great example of how Dee has helped me move forward with my business is a fantastic motif she created for me with my style in mind. It was perfect! I showed the garments featuring the motif in a fashion show and received amazing feedback and lots of requests. These garments would not have had the same look had it not been for Dee's thoughtful creativity.

I always look forward to new projects with Dee and to see what beautiful fabric I will have to work with. I encourage anyone who has the opportunity to work with her, to do so. It would be beneficial to both parties and her personality is an amazing bonus to her talents. What you see is what you get: talent, passion, dedication, enthusiasm, positivity, professionalism, a great sense of humour and most of all, support. She is truly one of a kind and I am lucky to have met her.
