Let's Unite in Imperfection

The true beauty of a woman lies in her identity, in what makes her different, in what she stands for, in her virtues and her scars, in her strengths and her vulnerabilities.

In our current world we sense the urgency to offer an answer to the apparent perfection presented around us. It is a relief to release yourself from the hostage of perfection. LaDress introduces the magic of imperfection. Defining women as themselves. Empowering women by giving them a look that enhances their strengths, regardless of figure, status or age. Offering the perfect outfit for our not always perfect life.

Let's unite in imperfection.

Simone on the Magic of Imperfection

In the last decade or so, a world of perfection has been created that has less and less to do with our day to day lives and realities. It is time to stop keeping up appearances, and open up to each other with what we struggle with, what we've conquered in our lives. A true life story is so much more inspiring and empowering. True beauty lies in real women.

From now on forward I will invite amazing women to share their story with us, openly and honestly as a way to show us all how to overcome backlash and disappointment, and also to guide us when it comes to following your dreams no matter what, fighting for what you believe in and never, ever giving up.

"The true beauty of a woman lies in her identity, in what makes her different, in what she stands for, in her virtues and her scars, in her strengths and her vulnerabilities"

Centuries back in one of Kyoto's majestic gardens, a tea master asked his disciple to prepare for a tea ceremony. The young man trimmed the hedges, raked the gravel, picked the dried leaves from the stones and cleared the moss path of twigs. The garden looked immaculate. The master inspected it quietly. Then, he reached at a branch of a maple tree and shook it, watching the auburn leaves fall with haphazard grace on tidied earth. There it was now...
