With her open back and delicately crossed, adjustable straps, The Delphine Dress shows the perfect amount of skin for warmer days. Her full, tiered skirt creates just the right counterpoint to her form-fitting darted bodice. She features an elastic waist and gentle scoop neck, and the best part is how well she pairs with a vintage denim jacket - making her deceptively well-suited for cooler days, too!
The Cerulean Daisy Field fabric was block printed by hand using pigments from plants in Erode, India. The printers used indigo leaves and more to create the floral design. This fabric is good for your skin and good for Mother Earth! The Delphine Dress was made by Angelica, one of our talented dressmakers.

When we started Christy Dawn, we just wanted to make beauty. We used deadstock because it was better for the Earth (and most affordable). As we grew, we realized: sustainability is not enough. We can't just sustain. Now it's time to heal.
In collaboration with the farmers and artisans of Oshadi Collective, we started by healing the soil through a regenerative cotton farm in Erode, India. Every aspect of this process is in a direct reciprocal relationship with the human beings who steward the land, the plants that feed from the soil and Mother Earth herself.
Utilizing upcycled deadstock (leftover fabrics from larger fashion houses that would otherwise end up in a landfill) is where we began and organic cotton is how we support the collective as we grow our regenerative farm acreage. Our goal is to eventually produce all of our fabrics through ancient wisdom and regenerative practices.
We have our own factory in Los Angeles. In India, we are working toward creating a fully regenerative fibershed, replete with cut and sew facilities. Our talented team puts care and intention into each seam we sew. Speed is the last thing on our minds; we prefer to slow down and breathe into each piece we are crafting.
