This dress is one of a series of 7 dresses that are each a story of freedom. The material is gingham print taffeta - which is odd. But when your cause is noble, your work becomes noble. I first imagined this dress worn by a princess offering a third world child good clean water. Both were laughing. The princess (taffeta) is not afraid of hard work (gingham) is not afraid to get her feet dirty. 100% of the proceeds I receive from this dress will go to carefully vetted organizations who work provide long term recovery for rescued victims of human trafficking.
