Hello girls ♡
If you are reading these lines, you may have already followed the steps of my lovely adventure with the Aatise brand on Instagram !
If this is not the case, be prepared to fall in love again with this french brand, both stylish and hyper committed.
I had already introduced you Aatise a few months ago, first on Instagram with one of their iconic wrap dresses, then here on the blog on the occasion of the release of their ecological linen t-shirts line.
I confess that between Aatise and me, it was kind of love at first sight ; I immediately loved their clothes, with feminine cuts and hyper-flattering, and their real sustainable commitment quickly convinced me !
That’s why, when Aatise suggested me to work together once more to create my ideal dress, I did not hesitate a single second !
However I think that creating your own dress in collaboration with a brand is kind of THE dream of all fashion bloggers, don’t you agree ?
But before I make you discover the steps of this « Louise » dress (yes it also bears my name !!), here is a little reminder of the history and values of the Aatise brand ♡
Created by two « Eco Fashion Activists » – one of them is a textile training engineer with 30 years of experience in the world of fashion (Heide) and the other one is a fashion and digital fan (Julia) – Aatise wants to show that we can create clothes that are both beautiful, ethical and sustainable.
Very far from the fast-fashion, Aatise offers only limited edition clothes, manufactured on pre-order (to avoid over-production) and in the most ecological materials as possible.
The brand has, for instance, refused to use organic cotton which consumes a lot of water, in favor of recycled cotton much more ecofriendly.
Besides, Aatise‘s commitment is not limited to its clothes production but is present as well in the brand offices : indeed these are located in the DARWIN responsible and sustainable ecosystem, an ecological coworking space of 6000m2 in Bordeaux (100% green power supply, 650kg of paper / cardboard recycled per month, 56% of waste produced on recycled site and 1220 bottles of water saved per month thanks to rainwater in the toilet !).
Now let’s get back to the creation of my « Louise » dress !
As for me, I found it was a wonderful adventure with both Aatise team and my Instagram community ;
Indeed, Heide & Julia, the two creators of the brand and I, thought that the experience would be even more rewarding by involving my followers to help me create this perfect dress!
After a lot of surveys on the social network (« bishop » sleeve or « gigot » sleeve ? – knee or midi length ?), we finally managed to find the perfect design, and that’s how the « Louise » dress was born at the end of the last week.
Wrap dress for the cut, bishop sleeves, slightly flared midi length and in a lovely burgundy dots fabric perfect for autumn, Louise really is in my opinion the perfect dress !
The fabric is at the same time fluid without being too light (you can feel that the material is of great quality), the cut fits absolutely all the morphologies (including the small ones ! FYI I’m 1,66m) and it can be worn in a lot of different ways/styles.
For my part I like to wear it as well in a casual way with a pair of sneakers or with thigh high boots, and the effect is always wow !
It’s quite simple, everyone asks me where I found this little wonder every time I wear it !
