The slip dress. This simple, slinky wardrobe essential is often the most elusive in today’s fashion landscape, a treacherous terrain of embellishment, print and pizzaz. If finding one is like finding a diamond in the rough, let us introduce you to the crown jewel.
AWAVEAWAKE is a collection of studied sensuality. An art history and sculpture scholar who spent years as a stylist, then a design researcher for the MET Costume Institute, designer Jaclyn Hodes references 1930’s lingerie and the free-flowing feminine silhouettes of 1970’s bohemia to create a range of silk separates that are both functional and ethereal.
Hode’s founded AWAVEAWAKE in 2012 not only to inject modest elegance back into ready to wear, but also to showcase environmentally conscious practices in high fashion. Each garment is made from ethically sourced materials and colored with plant-based dyes, helping to elevate the quality and specialty of each piece.
For their consciousness, comfort and couture, AWAVEAWAKE pieces are a thing to covet, a luxurious second skin that almost feels better than your own.
