Feel and look like a modern-day princess! Cut from flowy RPET Gabardine in baby pink, the pleats on this dress gently emphasise the silhouette. Equipped with hidden in-seam pockets, a very feminine neckline and a long key-hole, this dress is the embodiment of modern-day elegance. The key-hole ends in a careful arrangement of pleats across the waist and down the bottom of the dress, for that extra bit of oomph. Closes with a concealed nickel-free zip.

Composition:

Care guide: hand wash only, iron on low, do not bleach, do not tumble dry, do not dry clean.

ADKN Vision

ADKN seeks to build and maintain a viable and innovative business model with sustainable and animal-free products, engaging in ethical practices, aiming to reduce waste and be environmentally friendly.

Discover the ADKN Materials

At ADKN, we pride ourselves with choosing only the the best, top-notch materials for our garments. In order for a material to be used in our collection, it has to meet a very strict criteria that keeps in mind our unique vision of 100% animal-free, eco-friendly, ethical and sustainable fashion.

Discover our materials here.

Our Promise

We've spent years seeking out the best organic, natural and sustainable materials. We're tired of the unethical practices of fast-fashion and the hazardous products on the market so we created ADKN, the only exclusively 100% animal-free, eco-friendly, ethical and sustainable fashion brand made in London.

We promise to always offer the highest quality of sustainable garments, all ethically produced in our own in-house production unit in London, only from responsibly sourced materials. 

We like to think of you as a member of the family. So don't hesitate to get in touch with any feedback or suggestions.

As winner of the Green Business of the Year award and in close collaboration with Fashion District, ADKN seeks to make a change and set an example of sustainable and ethical practices. We all need to understand that climate change is real and that it's time for all of us to make a change in our lifestyle and our choices, for a better planet.

Organic. Vegan. Green.

We only have one planet - why choose to destroy it when there are so many safer alternatives? The garments manufacturing industry is the 2nd largest user of water and 2nd largest water polluting industry in the world, after the oil industry. That is definitely not something to be proud of.

At ADKN we only use natural, organic, recycled or highly sustainable fabrics, which drastically reduces the impact on the environment, whilst also engaging in a zero-waste policy. All our materials are very carefully sourced keeping in mind the environment, its resources, its wildlife and ultimately its people, and they carry the premium mark of PETA Vegan Approval, GOTS Certified, Global Recycling Standard and/or Oeko-Tex.  We also make sure our entire supply chain is carbon-efficient, reducing waste and leaving behind little to no footprint.

All our business associates and suppliers work very closely with multiple organisations to ensure animals, humans and nature are in perfect harmony such as Better Cotton Initiative, Ethical Trading Standard, Fair Wear Foundation, Natural Resources Defense Council, Soil Association, World Wildlife Fund and Sustainable Apparel Coalition.

High Ethics

ADKN would be nowhere without its hardworking team. A small group of very talented people, all working together in perfect harmony for one noble goal - setting an example and changing the way the fashion industry operates.

Ethical processes have been a priority to the ADKN team from before its establishment. We always seek to ensure fair, safe and high quality working conditions and working environment.

It's not just our employees that matter to us, but all the people we work with as part of our supply chain. We always seek to ensure all our materials are ethically sourced and produced under very strict ethical and safety standards as set out by the Fair Trade Act.
