Sophisticated Fashion Made Ethically

Victoria Road

Inspired by the vibrant cultures of Pakistan and India, co-founders Megan Brosterman and Shannon Grewer sought out to create a socially responsible fashion brand which supported sustainable economic development. Victoria Road is bridging cultures across the world through sophisticated designs for women and little girls. They work directly with designers in emerging markets, and have even opened up their own workshop in Lahore, Pakistan. At the workshop, Victoria Road is able to offer a safe and happy haven for their designers, artisans and seamstresses.

Instead of creating their own design team, Victoria Road works with several different designers abroad in order to highlight different cultural aesthetics. They offer designers access to materials and new markets, while making sure they minimize their carbon footprint {most material is locally sourced and scraps are up-cycled}. There is a great chart - here - which shows their supply chain from local design all the way to sales and marketing. What a process! 

I'm wearing the Lattice Fitted Shift Dress in black by Natalia Naveed, an emerging designer from Lahore, Pakistan. Her patterns are influenced by Moroccan design with Western cuts and beautiful embroidery. I love the pattern on this shift dress - it reminds me of a starfish {maybe because the beach is on my mind - but don't you see it?!}, and it is made incredibly well. This is a dress which can easily be dressed up for a little cocktail party or worn with some flats for a more casual look. For those who like a little color, it comes in blue, too! Both dresses are made in Lahore, Pakistan out of 100% cotton.

Now for some serious cuteness - you can dress your little ones up just like you! If this isn't giving me baby fever.... ;)
