Dorcas Dress Project launch

April 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

| Free

Event Navigation

We are launching our concept dress, a specially patented design, developed so it can be produced anywhere, even in remote parts of the world. It is one size yet fits everyone, even pregnant and breastfeeding mums.

As the founder of the project and with 25 years of experience in the fashion industry (on the factory floor, in the design studio and as a fashion lecturer) Maria’s heart cried at the destruction the industry had created. She developed this dress to protect craftsmanship and lift people out of poverty and hardship. The clever cut, pleats and carefully situated ties on the dress eliminate the need for zips, other trimmings and complex machinery. The project can therefore support makers from situations of hardship, even in remote parts of the world. The project provides appropriate training, resources and a growing network of customers. The pricing structure reflects a growing level of skill and craftsmanship.

Come and support what we are doing, meet the faces behind the project and help us celebrate what we have achieved so far.
