Grow, Cook, Dye, Wear – Bella Gonshorovitz


Grow Cook Dye Wear – Bella Gonshorovitz is the first book from Bella

Live sustainably with style – grow fruits and vegetables, cook them, create natural dyes, then make your own clothes with five full-size pattern sheets.

Focused around five crops (blackberry, nettle, onion, red cabbage, and rhubarb) that can be foraged or grown in an allotment, planter, or container, Bella Gonshorovitz – fashion designer, dressmaker, and writer – shows you how to embrace a holistic garden-to-garment lifestyle.

– Learn how to forage, sow, and harvest with straightforward grow guides
– Enjoy your produce with advice on the best vegan pantry ingredients and recipes

– Create natural dyes from your food waste to upcycle fabrics in beautiful seasonal shades
– Transform your fabrics into five exclusively designed, essential pieces of clothing, including a shirt dress and duster coat

Swap food waste and fast fashion for homegrown produce, delicious vegan dishes, and a contemporary capsule wardrobe with the help of Bella’s friendly, accessible approach to sustainable living.

Extra Info


Bella Gonshorovitz is an idiosyncratic creative practitioner whose interests lie in the seams between fashion and nature, art, culture and human behaviour with a strong sustainability focus. She trained originally as a fashion designer and a creative pattern cutter, before studying for a Masters in Applied Psychology in Fashion.

After working for labels such as threeASFOUR, Alexander Wang, Gottex and Gertrude, she established her independent practice in 2012, focusing on made-to-measure fashion and creative collaborations through a prism of sustainability. In 2017 she was a finalist in the Kering Sustainability Awards with a project for Gucci. Later that year she took part in the creation of the open-source online course ‘Fashion and Sustainability: Understanding Luxury Fashion in a Changing World’ developed by Kering and the University of Arts London’s Centre for Sustainable Fashion.

Bella started tending her allotment plot in 2018, alongside working on a large-scale fabric collaboration with artist Cathie Pilkington, RA. Creating a unique palette of hand-dyed fabric for the project, she started experimenting with natural dye, connecting the dots between her love of nature and making: gardening, vegan cooking, textiles and garment making.

she has written extensively for publications such as Time Out and Haaretz . Grow, Cook, Dye, Wear is her first book published in April 2022
