Named after our favorite-ever singer, The Nicks Dress is a true fashion dream. Her layered skirt features a ruffled hem, and a double shoulder strap is perfect for warmer weather. Tights and a denim jacket make her transitional to Fall, too! Her button front and V-neck bodice are reminiscent of a classic 40's silhouette, but she's been updated to feel fresh and timeless. You can definitely Go Your Own Way with this Gold Dust Woman. :)
The Nicks Dress was made by Cristobal, 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.
