About the Style: Rita is a shining star of a dress. She’s the one you’ll want to dance the night away in… Her shape is exceptionally flattering and helps enhance a beautiful hourglass silhouette. Her tulip sleeves are non-restrictive and allow for full arm movement. Rita’s shape is inspired by original dresses of the 1940s and she’s definitely got that special touch of vintage elegance about her. We make Rita from Tencel which has the same floaty weight and feel to rayon (the material that this style of dress would have been originally made from).
About the Print: Cultivated gooseberries were unknown until late in the 16th century yet by the end of the nineteenth there were as many as 2,000 named varieties. This was due almost entirely to the ingenuity of amateur growers, especially in the industrial Midlands, who were spurred on in their breeding programmes by annual competitions (still held in a few villages).
About the Fabric: We continue to use the ethical superhero fabric, Tencel™, for many of our clothes. Tencel™ is made from the pulp of Eucalyptus trees. It has the feel of vintage rayon - beautifully floaty and drapey, it washes really well and is biodegradable. It’s the most environmentally responsible fabric that we have come across and we love the look it gives to our dresses.
