The Little Black Dress has been a core staple for the well dressed womans' wardrobe since the days of Audrey Hephurn and Breakfast at Tiffanys and it is not likely to go out of style anytime soon.
So here is a selection of our dresses in your favourite colour. Black. Available to buy online 24/7.
A designer dress, made in New Zealand from Organic Cotton. It can be worn two ways, v-neck or round-neck and is under $200 including shipping.
Pretty hard to beat that!
But still.... let me tell you a bit more about what you are buying.
Two ways to wear
The Orchid dress is designed to be the same shaping front and back so it can be worn with either at the front and still be a great fit. We have done one side with a soft v-neck and the other with a round-neck so you can choose which to wear at the front. This means you can wear the neckline that suits you the most and you can change it around whenever you please. For example if you have a beautiful new necklace you want to wear you can check and see which neckline frames it best.
What does that mean and why is it important?
The cotton the fabric is made from was not grown with chemicals, this means it is better for the environment, better for the farmers and better for your skin.
This is a great length for many reasons. Firstly it is appropriate for everywhere. There are many places where a short dress is not appropriate but a knee length dress is appropriate pretty much everywhere. I can't think where it wouldn't be appropriate....
Secondly, it is great if you are tall. If you are one of those long legged women (that most people are envious of) I know you have problems with things being long enough, dresses quite often turn into tops on you so I am sure you will appreciate the extra length.
Now if you are slightly on the shorter side, I haven't forgotten about you. A below the knee or calf length dress is still going to look great, but if you would prefer it to be a bit shorter and you know that at the time of ordering, just leave a note at the checkout and we will shorten it for you before we send it out.
Made in New Zealand
We proudly make EVERYTHING in New Zealand and are a member of the Buy NZ made organisation. Buying Made in NZ items helps support local businesses and keep the trade and skills in NZ alive.
The Orchid dress has a beautiful slim fit and is made from a knitted organic cotton with a small amount of spandex for extra strength. The stretch makes for a really easy fit, it is comfortable to wear whilst still looking great. It also makes it easier to order online because there are more body sizes that can fit each dress size comfortably. (Also, if your order arrives and it doesn't fit, we will happily exchange for the correct size)
Every woman needs a wrap dress in their wardrobe and we think this one could be the one for you.
Short sleeves with a little split for extra movement, a beautiful gathered detailing to flatter the stomach area all made from a soft, easy to wear bamboo fabric.
Wrap dresses are known for their versatile fit as they are done up with a tie so it can be easily adjusted. As a designer label we have also gone a step further and created a wrap dress that can be worn various different ways giving you more bang for your buck.
Available in black and white floral, black bamboo, navy bamboo and white bamboo. Shown with our white organic cotton Zinnia Slip available here

This dress is going to be your Summer favourite because it is so easy to wear and great for whatever your day throws at you.
It is made from a beautiful lightweight fabric that drapes wonderfully. It is reversible from front to back giving you the option to choose between v-neck or round neck dependant on what suits your body shape, mood or accessories.
Pockets are always a girls best friend and a dress with pockets is always going to be a favourite, so the Azalea dress has pockets, just for your convenience.
The loose fit of this dress is great for keeping cool in Summer, but this dress is no sack dress, there is careful, gentle shaping that gives shape without being slim fitting.
For those who do need/want the waist to be tucked in, just add a belt and it gives this dress a whole new silhouette. Perfect for the days when you want an outfit for work that can be changed up a bit for an evening out.
The length is around knee length if you are around the 170cm tall mark, if you would like it to be a bit longer or a bit shorter, just leave a comment for us at the checkout and we can make it to your length for no extra charge.
For the pink floral and white bamboo options, a slip is recommended to be worn underneath which is why we created the Zinnia slip, an organic cotton slip that is perfect with this dress.
Fabrics - the pink floral print is a printed polyester chiffon, the black print is a viscose fabric and the plain navy, black and white are bamboo.View full product details
