Zhang is great for work or slightly more formal occasions, with its elegant fit and simple silhouette. It features a high neck and ends just at the knee, so is comfortable enough to transition from day to night.
Optional in-seam pockets at the side also give it some attitude and take it from me, this one is great for power posing!

Who made it? Who designed it?
Everything at Syra Brownlock is made and designed by me - from the sketches to the pattern to the outfit in your hands.
Everything is made to order to ensure minimal waste, and is made according to your style and size.
I use only ethically-sourced fabrics, and even materials like buttons and zips. Everything is sustainable, fairly traded, handmade, spun or dyed, or environmentally-friendly. Along with your creation you'll also receive a card with details of everything that's gone into it, so you know your purchase supports your values.
This dress is named after Zhang Na, the designer behind China’s Reclothing Bank and Fake Natoo. Reclothing Bank employs only women who’ve recently lost their jobs, and remakes fashion using all the clothing waste that’s shipped to China. The clean silhouettes of her collection during Shanghai Fashion Week really inspire me, as of course with Zhang’s environmentally-conscious values!
