The DARLING Dress - Emerald "Our Motto" Print
A short wrap dress with long sleeves, ruffled cuffs and a flounce skirt with circle-cut bottom, making it a dream to dance in. This is a true wrap style and can be adjusted to your desired fit. The DARLING dress also has pockets, because everything is better with pockets.
The Emerald "Our Motto" Print
"Care. Rewear. Swap. Repair. Resell. Donate. Recycle." This is our mantra at Afore After, so it makes sense to wear it, as well as live it. For this pattern, we took our long-held beliefs about how clothing should be valued, and committed them to print, with a minimalist word doodle on a background of rich emerald green.
Because we use printed fabrics as our main material, no two AFORE AFTER pieces will look exactly the same. Our fabrics are digitally printed in Spain, which is an environmentally-friendly process requiring less resources, energy and water than traditional printing methods. As with all printing methods, there can be some shade variance in colour and/or slight print markings that occur. In our production process, we review any such occurrence of this carefully and determine whether it’s significant enough to discard the fabric. As a truly sustainable business, we aim to minimise the waste we generate, so unless these natural attributes of the printing process are notable, we will use the fabric. Much like the print designs themselves, these printing characteristics contribute to the individuality of each piece.
Every single raw material that's used to make our garments is certified sustainable and sourced in Europe. The DARLING dress is made in Poland and uses:• Main material : 100% Ecovero Viscose by LENZING™. Certified : EU EcoLabel
• Thread : 100% Recycled PET Polyester. Certified : Global Recycled Standard, Oeko-Tex Standard 100

To be kind to the environment, please wear often and wash less.• Hand wash with care
• Do not tumble dry
Due to the natural characteristics of our high quality and sustainable materials, your garment might need to be hung for a day or so, to allow any creases that develop to fall out easily. After this, a cool iron on the reverse side of the fabric will eliminate any stubborn creases, if needed.
