I discovered Little Green Dress while on a bike ride around The Opera House in Sydney.
Little Green Dress were attending "The Clothing Exchange," a network of savvy and eco-minded clothes swappers.
Genevive started Little Green Dress in 2008, combining her love of beautiful garments and sustainability.The garments are proudly designed and made in Australia using natural fibres such as linen, silk, blends of hemp and silk, linen and silk, hemp and yak, reclaimed Japanese Kimono silks, and rare vintage fabrics.
I love the mandarin collar and petal sleeve that Genevive uses in her collection. It's so feminine and flattering.
Genevive uses end of run fabrics which means a limited edition of styles are available. This means you have the chance of having "one of a kind" dresses, tops or skirts in your wardrobe. Statement pieces.
All the garments are made with attention to detail and value of quality. this is known as slow fashion, meaning long lasting, high quality.
Genevive says, "Our garments are not a throw away commodity, but a cherrished and defining staple in your wardrobe." We take a stand against "disposable fashion."
Little Green Dress's garments are made by local sewers, and made in small workshops.
Genevive says, "Our clients are on the same page as us." They care about the planet; they appreciate the quallity over quantity; they are aware of the environment, and they make a difference with the choices they make.
