*SYDNEY ORIGINATES FROM KENTUCKY, USA. SHE RECEIVED HER BFA IN FASHION DESIGN AT O'MORE COLLEGE OF DESIGN IN FRANKLIN, TN.
HER STUDIO SPACE IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN MILAN, ITALY, WHERE GARMENT DESIGN AND PRODUCTION IS A ONE WOMAN OPERATION.
I wanted a wardrobe that made me look as bold I as felt, but finding brands with the necessary combination of glam and ethics was next to impossible.
Sydney Duncan the brand was created for the style innovators who demand more from “sustainable” than baggy beige linen. For those fashion risk takers who understand the transformative power of self expression through clothing, and who know that it should never come at the expense of anybody else’s well being.

NATURAL FIBERS SUSTAINABLY SOURCED
"Each Lenzing fiber is made of cellulose, a natural component of our renewable source material wood. A characteristic of cellulose is its biodegradability: At the end of their life cycle, our fibers can re-enter the eco-system, preparing the ground on which new plants grow. This miracle of nature is our inspiration."
Based in Indonesia, Zalmon Fabric prioritises reducing their environmental impact, ethical treatment of employees, and giving back to their community.
Every inch of their textile composed of 100% natural fibers, as well as they use Inkjet Printing technology to drastically reduce on water wastage.
"All of Zalmon family members are 100% local from Indonesia. We craft a supply chain that focuses on the needs of each Zalmon family member, giving training and economic empowerment along the way."

THE MICRO BATCH PLANT DYE RANGE
A MODERN INTERPRETATION OF TRADITIONAL TEXTILE DYEING
Each piece from the plant dyed range has been micro batch dyed by hand slowly and lovingly on my home stovetop.
The current selection of garments available utilizes locally sourced food waste as its main source of pigmentation. The Pigment extraction process is a gentle balance of heat and time, which when added to specially pretreated textile produces a beautiful range of colour.
Avocado, a producer of pink and tan shades, is my muse at the moment, and the star source of dye in the current collection.
