Thrilled to be the exclusive stockist in Australia of these one off pieces of wearable art ~ welcome La Réunion to Little Tienda.
This dress is best for a bust size 28-32'' and is 52'' in length. It features vintage textiles (60's and 70's) that are embroidered and patchworked, as well as dead stock fabric sourced from NYC cutting rooms. All dresses have pockets.
Our muse, Tanisha is size 12AU and 165cm tall.
Inspired by the Namibian women of the Herero tribe, these custom made Patchwork Dresses are symbols of resiliency and strength after overcoming attempted Genocide in the 19th century. These dresses are art pieces meant to empower, embolden, and inspire all while telling the stories of Africa.
In efforts to utilize the exorbitant waste generated by the fashion industry, all dresses are made using recycled material and special vintage dead stock fabric. Each dress will come with panels that have been meticulously selected and some even hand patchworked for the preservation of the material.
