A Fabulously Purple Party Dress

17Nov06

According to Tim Gunn of Project Runway purple is “in”. So why not forgo the traditional red or black dress and opt instead for a purple frock by enamore this season.

First up is enamore’s Pansy Shift Dress, an adorable vintage-inspired little number. Each dress is made to order by hand in the UK, and designed using a gorgeous organic cotton sateen print called Graceland by Harmony Art. Designers and sewing divas may want to check out our previous writeup about FG fave Harmony Art textiles and fabrics for your own collections.

The Plum and Pansy Day Dress is made from organic cotton sateen with a plum-colored hemp and tencel bust detail. This dress is also made to order by enamore. All handmade dresses requires 21 days from fabrication to delivery.

We’ve covered enamore’s line of eco-glamourous lingerie before, which would look stunning under these dresses. Sexy and sustainable, their French-inspired undergarments are made from hemp, a renewable plant fiber proves appealing for hippies and fashionistas alike.

The Fab Factor: enamore’s clothing is made from organic or sustainable materials including hemp (feels like linen), bamboo (simply silky), cotton and silk (though there is a healthy debate about the “eco-friendliness” of silk).
