Les Suffragettes. One dress, a day.

Dusting off the House Dress, redefining this classic with a fresh eye to fit our lives and times is how the Suffragettes concept got started.
After years as a dancer and then as a research scientist for 15 years in New York City, Natacha Opalka, the owner and designer, decided to settle in the South of France and follow her dream of creating dresses, something she had already done once as a teenager.
For the last 9 months, in collaboration with Florence Cugny, a young and dynamic dressmaker, she designed and refined her first collection and named it “Les Suffragettes”, as a homage to women who know what they want.
And there you have it: smooth cuts that emphasize the body curves, a choice of beautiful floral fabrics and, as a result, a simple, relaxed and elegant look wearable at all times of the day, at work, at home or on vacation, however it fits your mood.
All the Suffragettes dresses are handmade in Southern France in limited series and mainly from dead stock fabrics.

Découvrir ou redécouvrir la robe tablier, interpréter ce grand classique avec une touche contemporaine pour en proposer une nouvelle lecture: ainsi sont nées ‘”Les Suffragettes”. Un nom choisi en hommage aux femmes qui savent ce qu’elles veulent.
Ancienne danseuse puis chercheuse en biologie dans une université new yorkaise pendant 15 ans, Natacha Opalka a décidé à son retour en France de s’installer dans le Quercy et de réaliser son rêve de création de robes, une aventure qu’elle avait déjà réalisée à 17 ans.
Avec l’aide de Florence Cugny, une jeune et dynamique modéliste, les premiers modèles ont vu le jour et, après 9 mois de travail, la collection des “Suffragettes” est fin prête : des lignes fluides taillées dans des cotons fleuris, un look fait d’élégance et de simplicité, tout en féminité décontractée. La marque utilise principalement des tissus déja existants comme des fins de rouleaux ou des tissus vintage pour une mode responsable.
Dans le souci de garantir qualité et originalité, tous les modèles des Suffragettes sont fabriquées artisanalement dans le sud de la France et produits en séries limitées.
