Did you know that fashion retailers in Australia introduce between 65 and 100 new styles into their stores every week? Yet the little black dress is a simple classic that when teamed with different accessories, scarves, layers, and bold jewellery, will take you through just about any occassion, day to night.


This shift dress has been made in Australia from organic superfine cotton and silk twill. We love it for its attention to detail, with subtle contrast silk binds, front buttons and a classy hem split.
