The word "Ima" means "love" in the Ibibio Nigerian dialect.
Each dress is one of a kind and made in the same palette as the dress pictured. Dresses will feature vintage textiles (60's and 70's) that are hand patchworked (some mended in house) and eyelet, as well as dead stock fabric sourced from NYC cutting rooms.
When selecting a size, take the measurement from the widest point of the bust area. Brittany is a size XS and wears our 32 bust measurement. All dresses have pockets. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery - we will notify you as soon as the dress has shipped!
Inspired by the Namibian women of the Herero tribe, these custom made Patchwork Dresses are symbols of resiliency and strength after overcoming attempted Genocide in the 19th century. These dresses are art pieces meant to empower, embolden, and inspire all while telling the stories of Africa.
In efforts to utilize the exorbitant waste generated by the fashion industry, all dresses are made using recycled material and special vintage dead stock fabric. Each dress will come with panels that have been meticulously selected and some even hand patchworked for the preservation of the material.
