Cap Sleeve Dress | Chakra Wheel Print
Our cap sleeve dress is a favourite for its classic simple lines, which are flattering on all body shapes. A wide boat neck and cap sleeves fall perfectly on people with a stronger bust, widening the shoulder line and teamed with its knee-length hem elongating the body.
This season, the dress is reinvented in our ‘We Are Freo’ Collection Chakra Wheel Print, designed by local artist Dhruv Grover. This print is organic, nautical and bold, perfect with a navy skivvy layered in the cooler months for that Le Minor feel. A tie belt will allow our shorter customers to create a waist feature and ruche up the top part to create some long lines on the leg. Its classic shape will make it the perfect dress to take for a family summer lunch with your favourite cardigan, a work lunch teamed with a classic blazer or an after-work drink with a denim jacket.
The Chakra Wheel Print is designed by local, independent artist Dhruv Grover, who comes from a background in Product and Graphic Design. The Ashoka Chakra wheel is situated in the middle of the Indian flag, and signifies that there is “life in movement and death in stagnation”. It represents the dynamics of peace and change, has deep roots in Dhruv’s cultural heritage, and also has nods to Fremantle as a port city in its similarity in design to a ship’s wheel. A print with such rich storytelling behind it, Dhruv describes his inspiration behind this print as “Life is a journey, wherever we go we must share our culture and keep the roots strong no matter where the wheel sways us”.
As always, our garments are designed in Fremantle, Western Australia. Made ethically from 100% hand-loomed Khadi Cotton in Pushkar, India by The Stitching Project. Designs are hand carved onto wooden blocks. Then Pawan, our block printer at The Stitching Project places each block onto the ink board. This process is repeated a hundred times over with amazing precision and experience to create the perfect patterns. All of our dyes are Global Organic Textile Standards (G.O.T.S) Certified, and our fabric and processes are Craftmark Certified. Each of our Garments is proudly signed by every craftsperson who has had a hand in making it.
