With baited breath, I am waiting for my Moda Operandi order of Juliet Dunn dresses that I bought during the Spring / Summer 2021 trunk show from last autumn. To say I am looking forward to the day that the warm weather rolls through the steppe is an understatement. What isn’t to be stoked about warm weather and fancy frocks?
Block prints, embroidery, and hand dying techniques are Juliet Dunn design signatures. All of these signatures stem from an extensive love affair she has with India. Juliet partners with artisans across the country in an effort to keep old traditions alive. The effect is bringing us westerners new-to-us techniques in the form of dresses, tops, shorts, skirts, and caftans. I, for one, cannot get enough, and as proof indulged in one block print, three embroidered, and one hand dyed dress last summer. My Moda Operandi trunk show preorder has block print and embroidery. Color me jazzed for when they arrive to Kazahkstan.
These are the spring / summer 2021 styles that caught my eye; after the jump, Juliet Dunn on the blog:
