Twain Revell of TWAINE’S TWINES, a New York City resident Fashion Designer of handmade knitwear and treasured fashions featured “SOPHISTICATION” for her sixth Fashion Show at the Stepping Out Studios at 37 West 26th Street – 9th Floor for New York Fashion Week. This fashion show hallmarked Ms. Revells’ introduction of exciting new products and knit fabrics for Fall/Winter 2014 that was held on February 11, 2014. Featured was a gourmet OrGano Coffee & Tea Tasting at 12:00pm and the 1:00pm Fashion Show. “Model’s showed their first looks then dressed mid runway in evening outerwear featuring the designer’s handmade sweater and Mudcloth coats in reality show movements comparative to real life dressing. That is my expression of the new modern independent designer knitwear look of total sophistication”, says Twain Revell. From the ground up, you will see the full strengths of this visionary designer who initiated the creative process from combing and collecting the live animals fur, to the bath, to the spinner; all knitted up to designer’s perfection. Through one-of-a-kind vision and craftsmanship, fabrics shown were corduroy, Mudcloth, seambinding tape woven, peacock feathers, nylon knit lurex, Angora rabbit, spandex lycra, mohair, burlap all luxurious elements for a superb signature collection. That is all and more, about “sophistication”. The enthusiastic response to this brand new collection brought out Supermodel Alva Chin and Debbie Dickinson, National retailers from Los Angeles, Celebrity Stylists, Photographers, Socialites, as well as Ms. Twains Upper East Side Fitness Clients as Ms. Revell is a certified water aerobics instructor to boot.
A native Chicagoan, Twain Revell moved to Washington, DC to attend Howard University majoring in marketing, an education which proved to be the ammunition with which she made into the fashion business of Twain’s Twines. Originally focused on custom design, Twain’s Twines has established itself as a unique fashion house with an educational component. Having a spinning curriculum for beginner, intermediate, and exotic fibers, Twain Revell taught for the Weaver’s Connection in Savage, MD and the Springwater Fiber Workshop of Alexandria, VA. The classes are available as four week courses and intensive weekends.
After twenty years in DC, she relocated to New York where Twain’s Twines produced one-of-a-kind Mudcloth coats with knitted sleeves and hoods from her handspun yarns.
