The Darlene Dress


The Darlene Dress... a beautiful new design by Dalynnja Le Clerq. Inpired by the 1930s.


A classic 30s silhouette with beautiful details; a fitted bodice with gathered details at the bust, fabric buttons in the middle and gathered 3/4 sleeves.

A godet skirt, with art deco lines at the hip, creating the perfect 1930s figure. Zipper at the back, combined with a matching belt around the waist with a true vintage buckle.

Made of Ramie fabric and available in multiple colors.


What is Ramie?


Ramie is an eco-friendly fabric and the highly sustainable fiber is an alternative to synthetic fabrics. It is healthily grown without any pesticides, herbicides and chemicals. Ramie is made from the stalks of flowers and plants and is a chic vegan silk alternative and is lighter and airier. It is able to maintain shapes well. 


This particular Ramie fabric feels exactly the same as linen.




100% Ramie. Hand wash at 30 degrees. Iron on medium heat. Do not tumble dry.
