Water Shift Dress - SAMPLE
This sample was made to try out the style & print and has only been worn on shoot - it's the exact garment you see in these product photos!
With a relaxed cut, this dress is both comfortable and effortless. Enlivened by a bold print in true Gung Ho style, the sophisticated neckline and breezy silhouette are perfect for any occasion. Be the conversation starter with a Talking Point not many people know about - the water footprint behind food. The carbon footprint's lesser known sibling, this looks at all the water used at each stage of producing food before it reaches your plate. Hidden inside the print are silhouettes of different food types, sized proportionately to illustrate the ones using the most water, and which ones the least. Style with trainers for hanging out for friends, or dress up with heels for something special.
All our garments come with a dinky minizine explaining the issue within the print, its importance and what you can do to help. This means the next time someone compliments you on what you are wearing, you have more to say than just 'thanks'. Let's inspire and get people talking through design. We call this, wearing your heart on your sleeve - after all, we're more than just a pretty face and fashion should showcase your values too. 10% of our profits go back to a charity that works with that issue, in this case SeedsShare, a London-based non-profit working to provide organic and in-season seeds to farmers and home growers around the globe.
Sizing: To avoid excess manufacturing and wastage we offer our garments in two sizes, XS/S (6, 8, 10) and M/L (12, 14, 16). The way the garments have been designed utilises the width of the fabric as well as fitting perfectly to the body, working with the flowing nature of the fabric. This allows the garments to be more versatile and adapt to your lifestyle. This way if you gain or lose a bit of weight, it will still fit and look good on you, after all we are not mannequins! Print placement will vary by garment due to the size of the repeat, and to ensure we make the most out of the fabric. Charlie May wears an XS/S
