Coloured by Nature

Nature lovers will feel right at home in the new range by zero-waste, vegan friendly Brisbane label Bestowed, with garments that have been naturally dyed to match the subtle hues and tones of the Australian bush. Their beautiful Summer collection features asymmetrical skirts, loose, comfortable tees and long, flowing dresses in stone greys, midnight blacks and forest greens, and every garment is made from Certified Organic cotton fabric from Melbourne. Bestowed (and sister company Rant) have fostered close relationships with talented local patternmakers, cutters and sewers, and every garment in their collections is created locally within 30 miles of their studio on the outskirts of Brisbane. They also minimise their environmental footprint by generating solar power and pre-washing each garment in harvested rainwater – so by wearing one of their unique pieces you’ll be helping conserve our natural world while being draped in its glorious colours. We have three of the organic cotton Nasturtium Slips in indigo (worth $59) from Bestowed to give away! This light, versatile piece has just one flattering twisted front seam and is perfect for wearing alone on hot summer days, layering under a sheer dress for extra coverage or even wearing as a simple nightdress. To enter, simply comment below with your size and tell us where you’d wear your slip dress this summer. {Entries close 5pm AEST Friday 4 Dec 2015}c141020_197.
