About Us

Step into a realm of timeless elegance embraced by the breeze of centuries past.

Whether it's a couture wedding gown or a simple cotton day dress, our garments can be cherished and worn for many years – so each purchase is an investment not only in a garment that is made to last, but in the hope of a better future for the manufacturing industry.

We believe slow fashion is the future and the hope we can cling to in making a change for the better for our planet.

In this world of fast fashion people are expected to make their own bodies fit into standard sizes, instead of the other way around. If you ever felt frustrated when trying on off-the-rack clothes, know that it’s not your body that’s “wrong”, it’s the clothing. Do not blame your body. Blame the industry. The fault is in the production, not in your body.

Which is why we do not believe in using standard sizes. Each person's body is unique, so any attempt to make them fit in narrow boxes will leave a lot of bodies out of the equation. We hope standard sizing will slowly become a thing of the past, along with fast fashion.
When you order from us, rest assured that we cater to you too.
