  1. The Constance: It’s a dress inspired by the traditional blouse and double wrapper worn by African women. It is a very striking dress made from Original Dutch Wax (Vlisco).

Specially crafted to flatter all body types; the Constance has quite a strong stamp of the ethnic while maintaining a universal contemporary feel. Available in different complimentary and contrasting prints.

  1. The Multi-Functional Sun Dress
    This dress is quite a fun one with contrasting patch-work details on the belt. It would look great styled with a white shirt underneath, for those averse to showing their arms.
