Discovering Della

23rd July, 2014

We are always on the lookout for cool people who are making fashion in forward-thinking, sustainable ways: companies like Maiyet and John Hardy, and tastemakers like Greta Eagan. So when we heard about Della ~ an LA-based, women-run clothing line handcrafted in Ghana ~ our interest was piqued.

We did a little digging, and it turns out they run a genuine and effective program to educate and employ Ghanaian tradeswomen, and to preserve the traditional Dutch wax printing techniques indigenous to that region. Their materials are 100% vegan, and their production is as green as it gets. We were thrilled to learn that they’ve recently joined forces with Urban Outfitters, making the collection more accessible than ever, so we teamed up with photographer Reid Rolls (with whom we also shot THIS and THIS) and his lovely fiancée Linda Holm to showcase our favorite looks from that collaboration. The best part of it all is that they are exactly the sort of easy pieces we all want to wear this time of year.Della2|ABOVE| Della tie-back romper (it also comes in black!) |BELOW| Della button-up tank dress Della3 Della4 Della5 Della6|DISCOVERING DELLA| starring Linda Holm |PHOTOGRAPHY| by Reid Rolls |STYLING| by Kelly Framel |HAIR + MAKEUP| by Ido Raphael Zadok |CLOTHING| by Della
