“Linen fabrics have been reported ever since humans learned to make fabrics, and from many civilizations,” says Margaret Frey, professor of fiber science and apparel design at Cornell University. “Linen is harvested from the stalk flax plant, which grows in cooler climates than cotton and is robust against insects and drought and is also quite beautiful.” Designer Eileen Fischer has been using Linen as the staple textile in her collections for decades and it looks like the young New York Fashion scene is taking notice.

Parsons School of Design recently asked Ulster Linen to sponsor the linen textiles for MFA student Venice Wanakornkul. Since her work and material selection showed a mastery of fashion sensibility, her collection was selected to debut at the “New York Fashion Week” in September.

Ulster Linen was able to attend the private debut of her collection; which will brave the catwalk this fall at NYFW. Following the event, Vogue Magazine will feature this incredible fashion forward collection of linen apparel.
