It’s elegant & covered up with slim long sleeves, midi length & not-too-low V neck, whilst showing off & flattering your figure too - it’s also fully lined and the back is high enough to wear a bra with.
A season-less style, the Athena dress could be worn at any time of the year for so many occasions - special meals out, christenings or parties. It’s statement with all it’s beautiful details yet a wearable, simple silhouette.

**SHIPMENTS TO REPUBLIC OF IRELAND TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED (JAN 2021)**
Unfortunately due to Brexit issues, it is with much regret we have decided to temporarily suspend all shipments to ROI.
Our courier DPD has not been able to forward plan for this transition and has not advised us of all the costs involved now with shipping to Ireland as a British business, being outside of the EU.
The options open to us are to pass on all costs to the customer or to absorb all costs as a business within the price of our goods. This may well work on full price goods if margins were very good but on Sale items it would mean us making a loss. i.e. a £50 dress would incur costs of approx £9 shipping + £9 DPD fees + any other 'disbursement' fees in country.
As much as we want to honour all orders it's not possible as a business to work like this.
This link describes clearly some of the potential costs importing goods from the UK into Ireland
As a small brand we have always done amazing business with Ireland & we love our Irish customers very much, so we are working this month to try to find a way around this situation going forward.
It is only a temporary measure as we are amassing a backlog of orders due to DPD initially suspending all Irish shipments in January and now the costs of actually sending goods.
We need to stop orders for a while to give us chance to try overcome this.
We pride ourselves on offering a great service to Ireland, only 2 days tracked! and I hope we'll be able to continue this in Spring when we find a way to move forward.
Thank you for continuing to support us.
