“No matter how a piece of clothing looks, it cannot be considered beautiful if, in producing it, the environment is destroyed or people are exploited. When deciding on what to wear, we all have an obligation to consider how it’s made and the impact that process has on the planet and its people.”

Our dresses are made from rescued deadstock fabric that was left over from larger fashion houses. By using deadstock fabric we save hundreds of thousands of gallons of water annually and help keep the planet clean. When we purchase deadstock, the fabric content is rarely known. For this reason, we are only able to give you our best description of the fabric; the Palmette Azul feels like a soft rayon challis and eco dry cleaning is recommended!

“I love all the different designs of the dresses. It’s nice to always be working on something different.”
Carlos uses a single needle machine, which is the main machine used to make Christy Dawn dresses. He likes the intricate work he’s able to do with it. He recently celebrated his fourth wedding anniversary with his husband, and with their free time he likes just relaxing at home or going to the movies with him.
