Sustainably & Ethically Created with Love in Los Angeles
Our Meticulous Fuller-Cup Fit
Finding clothes that fit a larger bust can feel like an impossible task. We go against the industry standards and fit everything on a fuller cup size. We're continuously cross-fitting on all types of women's bodies to further perfect our fit. We know how hard it can be to find clothes that flatter a full bust and we've got your girls covered
Giving Old Fabrics a Fabulous New Life
We believe fashion should be created slowly & thoughtfully, with so much gratitude for our gorgeous planet. Our materials are sustainably sourced deadstock fabrics, giving them a fabulous new life. Similar to thrifted or secondhand clothing, deadstock fabric is essentially secondhand fabric that was previously developed by another brand. It's common in the industry to have to order fabric before even knowing the amount of orders per style. This practice can be very wasteful and most brands end up overestimating their fabric orders so they can easily re-cut into them if they sell. Inevitably, this creates a lot of wasted fabric at the end of each season. These fabrics either get thrown away, never used & left to rot in a warehouse, or sold to placed that sell deadstock fabrics.
Much of the pollution & environmental consequences related to clothing occurs during the textile production. By using deadstock fabrics, we're able to have a significantly smaller carbon footprint since we aren't adding to the environmental implications of developing & shipping new fabrics. It also means we get to use gorgeous textiles that otherwise would be thrown away. Since all our fabrics are thrifted, sometimes we're only able to get a small amount of yardage in each fabric, enough to make just a couple of dresses. This makes each dress a limited edition treasure.
Zero Waste Initiative
We operate slowly, making small limited production runs in each style. To operate low waste, it is important to always sell as much as you produce and we live by this mantra. This extends to all facets of the company and in efforts to remain as ZERO waste as possible, we work hard to utilize every leftover scrap of fabric. That's why you can find limited quantities of matching printed scarves & hair accessories for our dresses. It's a win for our customers & a win for Mother Nature!
Female Owned Small Business
Classy Fabulous Daydreams as been a fairy tale in designer Lea Finley's mind for years and during the upheaval of 2020, she started putting the pieces together to build her company. Much of the work has been out of her tiny, one-bedroom apartment as she has continued to push towards creating & launching her dream line.
When you buy one of our dresses, know what you're pledging your support behind our small female-owned business. We are so thankful and grateful for everyone in the CFD community for all your love and kind words!
