Featuring a delightful, unique hand illustrated print in luxury organic cotton, Rita features a flattering v-neck, full skirt and gorgeous tulip sleeves. Celebrating the curves of the female figure, Rita nips in at the waist, creating an elegant, hourglass shape.
Rita is a classic, feminine dress that is made carefully to the highest standards by our U.K garment workers; with a concealed side zip and fitted waist.
All of the fabrics are unique – designed and hand illustrated by Palava founder Bryony in their little London studio. The dress production is environmentally friendly; the brand always aims to use sustainable fabrics that have minimal impact on the environment.
We recommend matching your Rita dress with either one of our bright coloured classic cardigans or our statement embroidered knitwear.
All the fabrics and the dresses are printed and made with love in the UK.
All of our Palava dresses come with a special Palava notebook, filled with extra illustrations from the Scottish Highlands collection. The perfect place to write, draw, dream and doodle!

UK-based and family-owned brand Palava was passed down through the generations since 1854. After a few big changes to the company, Bryony decided to bring Palava back to life. Starting with children's designs, Bryony started to draw her own illustrative prints. Drawing her inspiration from the storybooks she had read as a child and put adventure into children's clothing. Each fabric has a story to tell, running along the hem of the dress, and each ethcially-made style for you (and your little one, too) comes with its very own little storybook. All the garments are ethically made of organic cotton in the UK. So that you know your clothes are making a positive impact upon the world. By exploring the adventures that take place on the border of the dress, and in the storybook, we hope Palava outfits will have a special meaning and be handed down from generation to generation.Show products
