Anne Gathered Dress

396.60 661.00

A modern twist on a 1910s silhouette, the Anne Gathered Dress features a bare bodice balanced by a full, midi-length gathered skirt. Lace borders the front neckline, and delicate spaghetti straps finish in a low racerback. The A-line waist meets the skirt in an arching seam, and can be worn as-is for an easy, vintage silhouette, or belted for a knock-out figure-enhancing look. (Belt not included; see Empress Salmon Leather Obi to complete the look). Skirt hem mirrors the waist, curving upwards at the side-seams. Hidden pockets at side-seams provide discreet storage for essentials when a purse isn't convenient. Invisible zipper and hook & eye closure at side seam. 

Try this dress layered over a button-down or simple t-shirt with flats for a more conservative, day-to-night look. Or, tap into your inner femme fatale and accent it with a corset belt and heels. 

100% Silk. Dry Clean Only.

 

**This style runs small. We recommend going up a size.**

Organic Ahimsa Silk, U.S.A

Typical silk fiber harvesting involves one of two methods: plunging the cocoons of the silk worms into boiling water, or piercing the cocoons to extract the fiber. Both techniques kill the silk worm in its cocoon.

Ahimsa Silk brings the focus back to nature. The silk worms are allowed to live their full life-cycle and emerge from their cocoons on their own. Each cocoon is inspected to ensure the silk worm has safely emerged before the fiber is extracted. The chemical bleaching and degumming process that follows in typical silk production is eschewed in the manufacturing of ahimsa silk, resulting in a material that is fresh from nature and chemical free. The process of manufacturing ahimsa silk is far more labor intensive, but it places the value back on the lives of the silk worms, and on the health of those who manufacture and wear their silk.
