As they say, Necessity is the mother of invention!
After World War II, there was an economic recession that compelled women to do house chores and other work. Thus evolved ‘No fuss dressing’. Shirtwaists (as the #shirtdress was called then) were casual, hence perfect for running errands or sometimes to replace as dinner dresses.
In 1947 Christian Dior launched “New Look,” which was a feminine variation of the #shirtwaist and it went on to become an iconic dress that was popular around the world as it still is!
Button front, roll up tab sleeves and a forgiving fit makes NAURU a flattering look for all body types. This classic #shirtdress comes with a seamless waist; a twist of cowl at the hemline and its notch collar makes it a no fuss formal dress.
Crafted in daffodil yellow with lightweight organic cotton and hand-woven in plain weave, it is humble daywear, which can be converted to a dinner dress by adding a stunning piece of neckwear. Wear it just the way it is, button down to make it a carry on jacket cum shrug or belt up!
We are an ethical fashion brand, with simple philosophy to create products while caring for our environment. Every piece is strictly made from organic cotton, handwoven and vegetable dyes. Mild variations in weave/color is a testament to this. Each piece is wrapped with love, stories and life experiences of weavers. Spread the joy of slow fashion!
