INSPIRATION - Bowen Dryden’s New Ethical Organic Cotton Bridal Collection, POEM, Has Evolved!

7th September 2020


INSPIRATION - Bowen Dryden’s New Ethical Organic Cotton Bridal Collection, POEM, Has Evolved!Aware of the current climate and conscious of the environmental impact of fashion manufacturing, UK designer Bowen Dryden has cultivated a collection that not only considers the creation of a garment but also the sustainability and untimely disposal of these garments will have on the planet. Make way for ‘not so fast fashion’!

This topic is fortunately at the forefront of Millennial and Gen X brides minds. They think about the future of the planet. 

Bowen Dryden has spent over 24 months working on this forward-thinking project from the initial research stages to gaining knowledge and sourcing organic cotton fabrics from ethically grown crops without pesticides to keeping every part of the garment bio-degradable. Conscientiously designing these sustainable garments so that they can easily be worn again.  

Even the buttons are ingeniously manufactured in cotton, the garment label is embroidered and the swing tags are recycled seedling paper tied with hessian. All materials used are fully compostable. 

The style of the collection is barefoot relaxed 1980`s vibe, with hippie chic frills and flounces on soft unstructured robes and mix ‘n’ match co-ordinates. Billowing tiered dresses, coatdresses, hot pants, palazzos and bikinis in pure white cotton makes this fresh, bright and clean collection perfect for summer weddings right through to the honeymoon.

Bowen Dryden always likes to provide options for an individual touch, by offering distinct floral and fauna embroideries using natural cotton threads in tone on tone or beautifully shaded with vegetable dyes. The whole garment can be colour customised by using ombre, tie-dyed or full colour dying techniques if the bride so wishes. 

Personal messages and symbols can be added outside or inside the dress, or on cool accessories, ie bags, shoes and veils to `write your own story`. 

The Bowen Dryden studio has for 15 years now been sewing, embroidering and dying all under one roof in an effort to keep a small carbon footprint. The studio has a fully qualified, multi-cultural workforce and this year will be introducing an apprenticeship programme working alongside the charity WONDER foundation, empowering women in developing countries into the fashion workplace. They pride themselves on our working environment in South Delhi.

So POEM in a nutshell: gorgeous design, flattering shapes, organically sourced, naturally dyed, ethically made and bio-degradable. Perfection!
