francine dress - burgundy


francine dress - burgundy


francine is my special occasion dress, a party dress. francine is form fitting but not skin tight. there’s a side slit for mobility and adjustable straps so you can move your arms around. made from a sustainable fabric called tencel gabardine, francine drapes beautifully on the body. i love this fabric because it’s both sustainable and easy to care for.

designed and made in los angeles

giving back

i donate a percentage from each sale to causes, charities, & people helping to make the world a better place. this season, i’m donating to food on foot, a nonprofit dedicated to assisting our homeless and low-income neighbors in los angeles with nutritious meals, clothing, and a fresh start through a life-skills education, full-time employment, and permanent housing.

plus, i plant a tree for each order. 🌲 i’ve partnered with national forest foundation to help me plant trees to offset my impact on the environment.
