Welcome

Anikka at Work.JPG

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I’m Anikka. I love color. I love to work with woven cloth. I love the freshness and variety of the styles of the 1950s.

So I design dresses in fine linen and cotton with a vintage look.

Most of my designs are textile driven. No surprise. I’m the granddaughter of two dyers, a weaver, and a cloth merchant. For me, a piece of cloth can instantly bring to mind a place or a moment that is the genesis of a dress. I choose design elements to enhance the message of the fabric.

The best way I can think to share my enthusiasm for what I do is to design a dress that is as much a pleasure to wear as it was to create.

So come on in. Have a look around the online shop; I’m road testing some of the designs.

Stop by and visit at fine craft shows and markets. Meet the dresses. I’ve got tape measure and pin cushion ready to help you find the right size, swatches to test you for color and fabric.

My goal is to create That Dress. You know, the one you never want to put away.
