People Tree V&A Rosa Dress
Taking inspiration from the exquisite V&A archive, the Roza Dress from People Tree is a truly timeless piece. Drawing influence from early 19th century block printing, this statement patternwork is reminiscent of 1805 fabrics and the style fashionable across furnishing and dress making materials from this era. Transformed into the wearable print you see here, the Rosa dress is of midi length, with a rounded neck and sleeves which sit just below the elbow. The fitted bodice makes it ideal to dress up or down.
This garment was made by Creative Handicrafts, an organisation which supports women in India by providing employment and fair wages. The fabric is made from organic cotton using methods that have a low impact on the environment. Organic cotton helps combat climate change and uses less water.
