This shape is taken from a vintage dress I found at Portobello Market. Laura Ashley style! A flattering open square frilled neckline, cinching in at the waist and a full length skirt. This print is my favourite this spring. Joyous pinks in our Rose Lolita block-print. How can you not skip through the streets?! Fresh and soooo pretty.
The fit is fitted and some XS or S customers find it tight so please check the measurements.
Organic Cotton. Hand Block Printed in India.
Cold machine wash using mild detergent.
PINK CITY PRINTS Working closely with artisans in India to create beautiful hand-made women's wear which celebrates the beauty of craft and sustainable fashion.
Glasgow School of art graduate, Molly Russell lives in Jaipur for six months of the year and works along-side block-printers, embroiderers and weavers overseeing the whole process from start to finish. “India has such an immensely rich culture of craft forms I’m constantly finding new processes to work with. It’s so inspirational, my senses are alive and I find beauty everywhere but craft is dying out, we must do all we can to use and promote them.“ An embroidered dress takes three days to complete. Block-printing is a little quicker but we can only print during certain times of the year due to the weather. Only natural fibres including cotton, hand-loomed khadi cotton and silk are used.
Each piece has been worked on by hand whether handspun, printed or embroidered.
The hand-work brings life and a unique quality to the clothing.
