The story of the Black Aurea Dress begins in California, where the deadstock silk is initially sourced. Every piece of material used is carefully selected by the founder, Natalia Trevino Amaro, from Los Angeles-based vendors who specialize in deadstock fabric. When sourcing material, Natalia prioritizes quality, always looking for fabrics that feel luxurious and comfortable. Once the material is sourced, it is transported to Natalia's studio where the dress will be hand sewed by the designer. The dress is then formed into a timeless fit, with a high tie-around neck and low back cutout. Once the dress is completed it is packaged in recycled packaging and sent to a shipment center, heading straight to you. This dress has lived in 1 country, traveled hundreds of miles, and given life to discarded materials to earn a permanent spot in your wardrobe. We hope you love this dress and wear it with pride, knowing you are embodying sustainable fashion and choosing to better the planet with your conscious shopping choices.
