Walk into any room these days and you’re more than likely to see someone wearing something you own. Worse, you’re wearing it, too. Fashion, over the past decade or so, has become a commodity that is mass produced and mass consumed. The result is feeling like everyone is wearing the same thing or, at the very least, something similar. Thankfully, if you’re looking for an alternative to high street fashion and a way to ensure that your outfit is making people do a double take in a good way, there is an answer: HOUSE of BOTTA
L.AND Black Silk Midi Dress | £130.00
A marketplace that features fresh, talented fashion designers from around the globe, HOUSE of BOTTA is putting an end to the woes of high street fashion, and are helping new designers have a platform to showcase their stunning craftsmanship and unique ideas. Determined to carry only the highest quality, most stylish new designers, HOUSE of BOTTA is an innovative new way for fashion-forward women to conveniently shop online.
Below are a handful of the talented designers that are grabbing our attention at the HOUSE of BOTTA and some of the stunning dresses we have our eye on for the New Year.
L.AND Silk Black Dress | £160.00
Based in Ukraine, L.AND offer women’s clothing featuring an urban vibe that spans both day and night wear. This designer uses precision in their designs creating unique, feminine shapes from luxurious materials. For New Year’s Eve celebrations, we are loving the Silver Silk Dress. Its curve-accentuating silver silk material and barely-there spaghetti straps make it feel sexy and chic – everything you want for that special night out.
L.AND Silver Silk Dress | £135.00
Over The Sea
Another Ukrainian brand, Over the Sea creates feminine silhouettes that feel almost fluid, which is perhaps a nod to the company’s name. Every aspect of its designs, from the patterns to the material, invite women to feel comfortable and confident. Its bodycon “candy dress” named “Do You Know What Love Is,” which is available in six stunning colours, creates a sophisticated shape that slims thanks to its below-the-knee fit.
Crafting unique pieces from elite stretch viscose material, women’s clothing brand G.Point knows how to make a stunning silhouette. A celebration of a woman’s sexuality, this designer’s skirts and dresses emphasize your curves, making you feel like the confident woman you are. Case in point: the Merilin Cocktail Party Dress. A bodycon dress that borders boudoir, every detail feels sophisticated and yet somehow utterly sexy.
Created in 2010, Anna Yakovenko is yet another head-turning Ukrainian brand that highlights feminity and individuality in each of its pieces. Intelligently using colours and prints that work with nearly all of your current favourite pieces, this designer allows you to rethink your wardrobe, giving it the breath of fresh air it needs after years of shopping high street brands. Anna Yakovenko’s Blazer Dress takes you back to the fashion statements of the 1990’s with its rows of buttons and cross body fit. Paired with the right set of shoes, you’ll be channelling the industry greats (think Kate Moss) all night long.
Anna Yakovenko Blazer Dress | £130.00
Charlotte London is an international clothing brand that specialises in women’s tailored jackets and blazers, smart wardrobe staples that can be worn for any occasion. We especially love the Button Back Jacket in Emerald and Deep Blue with a subtle thread running through the fabric adding just the right amount of sparkle. Wear casually during the day, or at night to add a touch of sophistication and brighten up that little black dress.
