a modern paradigm for an ancient ritual

imbued with thoughtful intricate details, aboutphaedra dresses have an ineffable quality that transcends the ordinary. 

using unique textural processes, unexpected textures are created by hand, crafting dresses that are contemporary and feminine, refined yet imperfect. ​ collection 1 is a reflection on possibilities.

aboutphaedra inspires individual creative expression, for women who are quietly confident, whose values and ethics are honoured through intention and care for the environment.

"early, while the sun is still white.

i pick the pink leaves.

i heat the water until it becomes milk.

i search for the cinnamon juice i made yesterday.

and i find it.     

next to the lemons soaking in rose molasses."

About Phaedra-228.jpg
About Phaedra-237.jpg

marriage is not a house or even a tent 

it is before that and colder;

the edge of the forest, the edge of the desert

the unpainted stairs

at the back where we squat

outside, eating popcorn

the edge of the receding glacier

where painfully and with wonder

at having survived this far

we are learning to make fire
