Like an Edward Hopper painting or a Wes Anderson movie, there are some work’s of art whose distinctive style bears the signature of their maker. Vedika M’s maxi dresses, jumpsuits, jackets and shirts, all use distinctive block prints and hand painted textures giving each individual piece an abstract effect that sets her apart from other fashion houses. It is the perfect marriage between flamboyant and sophisticated, therefore it’s no surprise it comes from the culture capital of the India, Kolkata.

The featured white hand painted flowy maxi dress is made from double georgette. It plays with brush strokes and cut outs which makes it a great pick for a relaxed day out in the sun or for easy weekend dressing. Maxi dresses are now a year-round staple and when aiming to look effortlessly chic, it's hard to go wrong with a long summer dress.

A date night or a brunch with friends, on days where you feel like playing with more colour, the bright orange and pink dress is your answer to “what do I wear?”. It is an abstract printed lycra dress, which uses color block technique and radiates architectural elegance.
