Slow Fashion: Making the Calliope Dress
The Calliope Dress
Like much of our Spring 2017 collection, the Calliope dress was inspired by a sourcing trip in the Sacred Valley of Peru. While there, Ulla worked closely with local artisans in the regional weaving and knitting communities. Delicately handcrafted by dedicated craftswomen, each dress takes a full two weeks to make, its intricately patterned panels are carefully linked together with minimal seams, all in lustrous mercerized cotton. Adorned with soft ruffles and hand-crocheted flowers that closely hug the body, the details give this piece a richness that demands attention.
