ArtoWear Studio at the Roberts Creek Library!

                               For my 3rd year at the Sunshine Coast Art Crawl, I'm excited to be displaying my work at the Roberts Creek Library, in the Village.

                      "ArtoWearStudio" will be showing one-of-a-kind fashions: dresses,  jackets, skirts and accessories designed and made with vibrant textures and colours. There'll also be a small collection of vintage and upcycled items.

                   Books on Textiles, Fashion and Design will be there for you to peruse.

                  Step into the Fashion Pages at the R.C. Library with ArtoWear Studio.

Fashion Warriors: What to wear?!

                                Fall is in the air!!!

                                     The response to last week-end's Art Crawl was so positive! I thoroughly enjoyed meeting potential, faithful clients and friends , fashionistas, onlookers, coming from all parts of the Coast as well as from the North Shore.

Thanks to all who made this 3-day event a success, not only by buying but also by visiting and supporting artists and artisans.


Today, to celebrate a rare, glorious, sunny day, I donned sunglasses and sat on a friend's deck,  thinking about my next collection  for the  fall and the upcoming cold season!

    Last week, I went to two of my favourite fabric stores: Dress Sew, a great textile haven; a store where you can lose yourself for hours, amongst fabrics and notions of all types, colours and prices.  twitter.com/Dressew
    My next stop was at Fabricana, in Richmond. Another great
trove of treasures. Especially the second floor, home decor, is like candy for the eyes!

Of course, I found my inspiration the next day: a great little woollen plaid and bamboo dress. A creation which will happily dress up the dark or sunny mornings at the office or… anywhere else.
And, it's just the beginning of my new collection.

More to come…

Art Crawlers : Wondering what to wear as you tour the wonderful Sunshine Coast Studios? Wear some Art, from the "ArtoWear Studio" of Hélène Baril, #24!

This week-end my studio work fills my house! At 427 S. Fletcher, you can find a wide variety of textile creations: dresses, accessories, hats, and more! 
Unique, local, handmade fashion that's creative, affordable and fun!

       Warm up your Fall and Winter with vibrant colours and soft fabrics. Try on a dress, skirt, car coat or jacket that will make the fall feel fabulous.


                  Or, if you're planning an Escape on cruise ships, warmer climes, come in, browse and find something unique.  Designs that you could wear everywhere or just for this special holiday!  



 I love sharing ideas and discussing fashion, consumerism,  art & design.
 My working library will be available for browsing.                          

I look forward to meet you!
