Wangari Dress | Surface

R 1,750.00 R 3,100.00

Named after Wangari Mathai, Kenyan environmental, social and political activist who was the first African female Nobel Prize winner - this dress is as diverse and fulfilling as her inspired namesake. 

Able to be worn 3 ways, The Wangari is the season hero. A maxi dress of dreams, this style will also transcend seasons and offer timeless wearability. The full length hem is trimmed with a gathered frill detail for weight and sway. The ¾ length sleeve is capped over the shoulder and falls into a subtle gathered bellow effect which is further gathered into a sleeve cuff. 

Wear option 1. Opening at the front and the ties wrapped around the body with a wrap/cross over effect. Either tuck the front waist of the skirt under the wrap to conceal your skin or leave it a little open for some skin reveal. Tie the ties at the back for a cleaner finish or at the front for more detail

Wear option 2. Tie the ties at the centre of your bust in a bow for a more open and revealing effect.

Wear option 3. Wear the opening at the back and wrap across bringing the ties to the front giving a full coverage effect at the front.

See various images for all the different options.
