Feeling Groovy! Tienda ho

Standard

Tienda ho has been the Queen of Boho Hippie chic for over 45 years. Waaaay before Free People, Anthropologie or Johnny Was hit the current fashion scene. So when we listed our new Tienda ho one-of-kind Haori Kimono & Cascade jackets we sent an email out yesterday and zip!, zong!, zap! (yes that’s the sound they make!) in flew the orders for over 30 new Haori Kimono & Cascade Jackets!  Two sisters seemed to be vying for the same jacket, oh my! Family feud over who gets it.

The Haori Jackets are made by a wonderful woman in India, she has been making them for over 30 years. As the years have passed her color sense has matured so now, the kimono jackets are songs of color melodies.

Of course we have so much fun with our model as we shoot these one-of-a-kind beauties. Leann Sgobba is an amazing product designer and commerical artist (Callebonita Studios, but we have snagged her for our current model. Typically we have some coffee before we start a photo shoot, because I love having the model move in the clothing to show the drape and flow of our groovy goddess garments. It’s alot of work carrying one-of-a-kind clothing, cuz we have to shoot each one, we don’t have 6 of each. But our lucky goddess gals love having the only one!

The Haori Jacket is made in the style Tienda ho made famous, “Nothing-Matches” with rich textures and fabrics from embossed jacquard to silky rayon florals. The Haori is made along traditional Kimono style lines; shorter wide kimono like sleeve but of course updated to our 2016 look with two pieces of fabrics with braiding. The sides have extended gussets so they have that lagenlook drape we all so love.

The cascade jackets are designed along the lines of Hollywoods glamour Smoking Jackets. They have drop shoulders with Nothing Matches fabrics, with a flat embroidered collar panel, two front banded pockets and long dolman sleeves (that extend the bust and hide ze chocolate bars!)cascade1

They are over-size and will fit many types of figures from small to 2x. (Maybe 3x but check your measurements against listing measurments to make sure of a comfortable fit.
