Joan Patchwork Mega Dress
The story behind the dress...
Last year, I faced a challenge: what to do with production remnants? As a small brand committed to sustainability, I found inspiration in the Herero people of Namibia to create this collection of limited-edition patchwork dresses.
The Herero people's beauty, style and resilience moved me to create something unique in their honour. After months of hard work, I am thrilled to release this collection of limited-edition dresses that embody their vibrant style.
This is your chance to own a dress that is truly unique (no two dresses in this collection are the same).
Each dress features our popular shape crafted with Ankara fabric. They are adorned with panels carefully selected by our skilled tailors, combining materials from our previous and current prints. You'll love the exceptional quality and attention to detail that goes into every dress. And it's great to know that this has been possible in a way that conserves our planet's resources.
This dress is designed to be big and voluminous.
Handmade in Lagos, Nigeria. Each dress took almost a week to make. Belts may vary but will match the dress.
For earth's sake, we encourage minimal washing. Machine wash using a cold water setting. Hang dry. Medium iron, if desired, from the inside.
Have you measured yourself correctly?
Our sizes are different from high-street stores. Please measure yourself with a tape measure before ordering. Our measurements refer to the size of our clothes, so for a good fit, you should check that your measurements are less.
Our Model Yvonne is wearing one size. She is 5.6" tall, and her chest is 35".
This dress is hand-cut and hand-stitched, and measurements will vary slightly.
