La Réunion

Inspired by the Namibian women of the Herero tribe, these custom made Patchwork Dresses are symbols of resiliency and strength after overcoming attempted Genocide in the 19th century. These dresses are art pieces meant to empower, embolden, and inspire all while telling the stories of Africa. 

In efforts to utilize the exorbitant waste generated by the fashion industry, all dresses are made using recycled material and special vintage dead stock fabric. Each dress will come with panels that have been meticulously selected and some even hand sewn for the preservation of the material.
