DRESSING FOR THE DESERT (IT'S NOT WHAT YOU'D EXPECT)
June 27, 2018
I can't remember when I got more excited about, or had more fun wearing, a dress. I mean look at it; its ankle-sweeping, moves-like-liquid, spirited design is a sartorial dream. Not to mention that metallic mermaid green and gold. I have to confess I hadn't heard of the brand, Dhela, but it's now firmly on my radar thanks to Baar & Bass who are stocking it this season. And discovering and supporting new, upcoming names is definitely something I've always endeavoured to champion.
I wore it to see two of my oldest friends tie the knot in the sparse and dramatic scenery of Morocco's Agafay Desert (camel-riding and belly-dancers included). These images were shot on the doorstep of our eco-lodge, home for the night after being whisked out of Marrakech Medina a couple of hours before. As you do.
