Alison Fowler’s Wall of H’Arts 2017

Since the beginning of Twiss & Weber at 1282 Wellington West, Alison Fowler showed her Wall of H’Arts. This is the fourth year and Twiss & Weber is proud to invite you to Fowler’s fourth annual Wall of H’Arts!

 

Ottawa artist Alison Fowler painted 200 H'Arts for your enjoyment

Alison Fowler’s 4th Annual Wall of H’Arts

 

Alison Fowler, of www.alicatart.com, is a local artist who has a deep connection with nature and it’s occupants — be it birds, trees, landscapes and the colours they contain. Each February, Fowler paints a number of lovely 4×4″ canvas H’Arts. A delightful and accessible way to connect with art and love, Fowler sells these original pieces to the public for a short period of time.

This year, the Wall is up for four days only, and the H’Arts often sell out, so don’t wait until the 14th! The H’Arts in the photo are from Ms. Fowler’s previous works. Each year Fowler paints new original H’Arts.

Do try to make it into the boutique from the 11th until the 14th to pick up the perfect Valentine for your special Valentine. But do not wait until the 14th as this show has sold out in the past!

Have You Ever Said…

Maybe you have said something like, “I want to start putting my quality earned money towards quality made clothes”? We’ve heard that from time to time.

Or, you’ve said, “I can’t find anything to wear!” After you’ve emptied your closet onto your bedroom floor. If it feels any better, we’ve all been there.

Have you heard, “I wear two outfits every other day and I’m so bored with it”?

Or, “I don’t have the right basic dress to take me from work to cocktail”

These Challenges Can Discourage Anyone

Twiss & Weber can help you achieve a quality wardrobe within your investment goals. Investment in time, money, and emotion. We are here to help you.

Laura Twiss & Tonia Weber offer a Wardrobing service where they personally take the time to review with you your clothes and accessories:

  • With you, we establish the need for you to clear your wardrobe
  • You will learn to revamp your existing clothes
  • Brush up on how to purchase smartly
  • Set the guidelines down for you to confidently and smartly re-build your closet

Homework

First off, the ladies have you do some homework. During a three-hour private workshop Twiss and Weber teach you the skills to save yourself time in the morning and build confidence in your own style.

We bet you have great items you’ve chosen over the seasons, and you’ve chosen these pieces for a reason. Now, that is up to T&W to reintroduce you to these pieces. This is how:

  • Sometimes you are simply missing a key item to bring it all together
  • Sometimes you need to alter an item to make it fit or be more appealing to the eye. T&W will take care of those alterations for you at the going alteration rate
  • T&W will suggest to donate your unused business attire to Dress For Success Ottawa and the other great pieces to St. Vincent de Paul. They will arrange the distribution of unused clothes on your behalf.

Clarity

As a result of these three consuming hours, you will have a clear picture of how you will wear your clothes each morning. Consequently leaving you more mental time for self-care.

Therefore, you can not afford not to acquire this new knowledge to Take Command of Your Own Style. As a result, conquer your day with grace and ease.

Vertically Integrated

Vertically Integrated is a company operating multiple steps from creating or building supplies to manufacturing to selling. At Twiss & Weber we design in-house. We draft in the basement. We grade each pattern. We cut the patterns into fabric. We sew the fabrics into garments. We sell our garments in the attached boutique. Our wonderful clientele buy our creations. Often, a designer will farm out certain steps but we, for many reasons, keep the production in-house.

To keep the cost down, the steps of creation and production remain in-house. Not participating in fashion shows keeps the costs down. Avoiding the photographing of the collection 6 months in advance is another way to keep the costs down. In fact, many times we have been told by our customers that our prices are very reasonable. For us, that is wonderful, and a complement… and then we review our formula… each time we review our formula we remind ourselves that we are doing that part right!

 

Vertically Integrated

The dress Tonia is wearing, in the above photograph, is new for Fall 2016. This is the classic PBD, aka Paper Bag Dress, but made in a wonderful ultra suede in a glorious teal!

The fabric is limited. But there is always something beautiful in the boutique. The necklace shown is by Ottawa designer Birch Jewellery.
