DRESS creates limited edition trans-seasonal capsule collections. The garments are designed to embody each theme and tell the story in their structures.

DRESS collections are made using high level manufacturing and artisanal dressmaking techniques, developed according to the sustainable principles first developed in the CRISIS Manifesto.

DRESS designer Julie Wilkins was previously founder/director of UK fashion label FUTURE CLASSICS, and also creates project based electronic music.
