Once there was moth…

Once there was a moth who had a great aspiration to become a silk jacket.  The moths name was Rococo, and her friends had told her many times that becoming a silk jacket was not something a moth could do, and besides that, it would kill her.
Rococo, or Coco as her friends called her, was shimmery blue with silvery white spots.  Her best friend, Dandelin was white with pale yellow bands.  Rococo thought they looked beautiful together.

Dandelin did not approve of Coco’s dream for herself, but she was her best friend, so she listened and tried to support her the best she could.

One day, as Dandelin and Coco were supping on Queen Anne’s Lace tea, Rococo turned her wide fluffy antenna to her friend and said, “I’ve come up with a plan.”
“Oh?” said Dandelin; she steeled herself to be calm.
“I’m going to travel and seek out someone who can help me with my dream of becoming a jacket.”
“Oh, that’s great”, replied Dandelin, trying to sound enthusiastic.
But Rococo was caught up in her thoughts and didn’t notice how flat Dandelin sounded.



Ket is my time-travelling Rococo moth jacket. Made from silk and moth DNA, it is one of my first projects, and one of my favourites.
I love the way I can weave the memories of my journey back through time into the fabric of the garment.

A lot of things have changed since alien intelligence made contact in 2011, and nothing interests me more than the changes in clothing and costume.
The huge initial boost they gave to research in all areas of technology meant that FINALLY I could create some of my designs that had been sitting in drawers for years!
I hope to be able to describe to you a few of my favourites ❤
