Westlake Dress by Reformation

Hi. The Westlake Dress makes us think of lounging by the pool in Morocco, and anything that can make you feel like that can't be bad. This is a medium weight textured woven maxi dress with a long wrap skirt, but let's talk about the top. It has cap sleeves that extend from the blouse (which is a loose but not baggy fit), and a low V neckline that ties in the front so you can show skin in the most relaxed way. Made from surplus rayon blend.

This is made from deadstock materials. Every season, thousands of yards of fabric go to waste from fashion houses that over-ordered. The textile industry is one of the most chemically dependent industries on earth and the #2 polluter of clean water. We're trying to lessen the blow by using fabric that already exists, because we heart dolphins and all the other stuff that need healthy rivers and oceans. All of our products are made in sunny LA.
