Black-Hued (17)


This pleated dress has a relaxed silhouette that accentuates the curves of the circular pleating that has been applied to the fabric. The hemline falls at a slight downward angle as it naturally creases into tighter pleating.

SHIBORI PLEATS is a pleated series of elegant silhouettes that transition effortlessly from daytime to evening wear. After applying large circular pleats to the garment, the fabric is carefully tie-dyed by craftspeople in Kyoto, piece by piece. This traditional process allows each piece to express it's own unique impression of the Shibori dyeing technique.
