The One Dress Project

You'll see sash is pre-threaded through button hole like 'gaps' & runs through centre of dress - this is key! Wether internal sash section runs across your back or front will determines your styles. Dress is developed to enhance, adapt & meet your needs for a lifetime - we hope you love her as much as we do! x Kerryl ebX

Dress Care > Pop in a wash bag on a cold short cycle with gentle liquid. Air dry. Dress is non-iron but cool iron is ok. Add fabric softener if you experience static.
Technical ‘Vegan’ Textile > Developed by the finest Mill in Japan leading the way in creating a PETA approved ‘vegan’ alternative to silk, as brands worldwide withdraw from using silk (& cashmere). The result is luxe for am:pm; uniquely resilient & suited to everyday wear, offering you the ultimate in wash & wear, non-iron convenience. Every dress is made from upcycled or recycled textile.
