I love our Crochet Maxi Dress in Mauve for its comfort, ease, feminine hue, and endless opportunity for wear. You can get really creative with this beauty, and I even love wearing mine as a loungewear-substitute on warm, summer days or when we are at the beach. Enjoy my mood-board and a little bit of background of who and where our knitwear is made...
Today marks the first day of Fashion Revolution Week where question #whomademyclothes is posed to designers. So let's begin this conversation! I have worked with my production manager in Mexico for many years now. We have a small team but we are passionate about what we can do to support women and create high-quality knitwear.
Materials and a sample are provided and each knit is made in the comfort of the craftswoman's own home, and in her own time. Located in a small historic mining town, the women who cart our garments are third, sometimes fourth generation wives to miners and they care for their home and children while the men go to the mines. Our production is a precious process that is appreciated by everyone involved; and therefore delivers an exceptional garment that is one of a kind, made with love and care.
Our Mauve Crochet Maxi Dress has been photographed and captured in many ways and always follows through with a poetic aesthetic. Stylist Silla Pere and photographer Joey Kennedy brought this style to life on the West Coast in Pescadero, California. The landscape, ocean, and coastline was the perfect backdrop for one of our most delicate and loved styles.
I love this maxi dress so much, and it is available in multiple colors: mauve (as you see here), navy, white, and beige. The main question that I am asked when someone is purchasing or considers purchasing this dress is, what do I wear underneath? You can pair this dress ~ as well as our other open-weave styles ~ with just about any slip that is already in your closet. I also suggest Commando, which we sell, here. The Commando slip mini-dress is easy and they have a longer version available on their website, here. A nude bodysuit will also do!
