The METAmorph dress by Thieves aims to be more than a simple beloved wardrobe staple. It aims to offer not one, but 24 answers to the frequent “what am I going to wear today?” dilemma. Canadian eco-conscious designer, Sonja den Elzen, has envisioned a dress that wouldn't just work for one occasion. Instead, she created a dress that would work for all body types and could easily be adapted to work for various seasons and which would never be dated.
The description of the new dress really helps uncover the multitude of styling possibilities it offers: "The METAmorph dress is the ultimate wardrobe must have; perfect for traveling, carrying you though all stages of pregnancy, as well as allowing bridesmaids to express their own unique style with one simple dress. Versatility is key, for dressing up or lounging in and the METAmorph dress provides simple infinitely transformable style for any modern day woman."
The METAmorph dress is made in Canada from soft organic bamboo stretch jersey dyed using low-impact dyes. The fabric is malleable in order to accommodate to many different looks, however it doesn't lose its shape easily. It's available in three sizes, petite, standard and tall, so every woman can benefit from the innovative eco-friendly staple. The dress is available in 5 gorgeous colors, however, that is not the whole story. The label has also decided to give back and has done it in an unusual way: it donates a portion of the sales from each dress color to a different charity and each dress color represents a different cause.
"I felt it was important to be able to share with the people who are out on the front lines creating positive changes for peoples, like clean drinking water, helping villages and people become self sufficient, to help create an opportunity for balance in the world and to help support organizations like the David Suzuki Foundation who are always raising awareness and educating about the earth and help. It's great to be able to use fashion as a tool to create change and positive empowerment," the designer told Ecouterre.
Currently, a limited number of versatile METAmorph dresses are available on indiegogo.com for $82 CAD, half of the regular price, however, shipping is expected to start only in May next year.
