You don’t set aside precious wardrobe real estate for just anything. When storage is limited and your clothes collection is growing, drastic measures need to be taken. Gone are the days of buying dresses you’ll only wear once, you need pieces that can handle themselves in any situation. Something that’s just as comfortable sipping on cocktails as it is dining with your mother in-law. That’s where Sydney-based label Tato & Memi comes in.

These ladies make their dresses to be worn and judging by their current collection ‘Desert Lily’, we’ll be doing just that. Jersey, silk and lace is twisted and hand-painted to create a wearable collection of dresses in burnt oranges, olives and creams. Let’s just hope there’s a vacancy in your closet.
