Pesticide Shift Dress
Easy to wear with a flattering cut, what more can you ask for? This dress keeps it sophisticated in the neckline but boasts a relaxed silhouette. Both comfortable and effortless, it's perfect for any occasion but it's the print that's a real conversation starter. At first glance it's deliciously fruity, but look a little closer for a visual representation of the safer fresh produce. The more spray passing through the illustration, the higher the amount of pesticide residues found on that type of produce when not shopping organically. Style with your favourite trainers for a relaxed look or layer up with a tights and boots for a weekend away.
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
