)-- Designer Malcolm Harris of the emerging luxury brand Mal Sirrah announces the September 5th, 2007 debut of his company’s daily video and text blog, Cut, Sew and Blog.
Cut, Sew and Blog offers an inside look at the designer as well as his business and creative teams as they debut their Spring/Summer 2008 collection, develop a second fashion line (Sirrah Sirrah), cast models, choose a new showroom and studio location that seamlessly facilitates a live/work situation, and make several other creative and strategic business decisions. Mr. Harris says that what he is most excited about is ushering in author Thomas Friedman’s sentiments that “The World Is Flat” and contrary to popular belief, and so is Fashion. In order to drive this point home, Mal Sirrah has decided not to present their collection in the run-of-the-mill runway format and has instead opted to present his full collection entitled “One Dress, All Women, One World”, exclusively via the internet during Paris Fashion September 30th – October 7, 2007. The Mal Sirrah Spring/Summer 2008 Collection will also be available for viewing on Cut, Sew and Blog.
On top of running an emerging fashion brand the designer and his team will also give visitors to the blog a bird’s eye view into its philanthropic efforts as they prepare for the next incarnation of Designers For Darfur, an organization founded by Malcolm Harris and model/heiress Lydia Hearst. With video clips, still images and text updated daily, Cut, Sew and Blog is the perfect regular jaunt for editors, buyers, fashionistas, aspiring designers, potential investors, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and anyone inspired by the world of fashion and the company’s motto – “Changing the World One Dress at a Time” … Cut, Sew and Blog can be reached directly at www.cutsewandblog.com as well as www.myspace.com/cutsewandblog and www.youtube.com/cutsewandblog.
