Description

This is the dress for everyone who’s ever dreamed of being the star of their own fairytale. Every time we launch a new collection we say this is our biggest dress yet, but I swear it’s true and this is our biggest dress yet, yet again. Featuring a full circle skirt, dramatic vertical frills over the upper body, puffy sleeves – honestly, with this dress, who cares about the prince.

Psst, wanna know who Leola is?

Leola King, also known as the Queen of the “Harlem of the West” was one of the first Black women to own and run a Bay Area night club in the 1950s. The San Francisco Redevelopment Agency began taking King’s properties through eminent domain, paying her a small percentage of what they were worth, and eventually wiping her out financially. Ms. King continued to fight the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency for just compensation until she passed away in 2015 in Palm Springs, CA.

Lance Burton, founder of Planet Fillmore Communications, who grew up in the Fillmore and remembers King in her heyday wrote after her death in 2015: “Mrs. King was like a big movie star to many of us, a star who brought some very bright moments to our community—maybe the most golden period of years ever to have been seen in San Francisco by black folks before or since… Mrs. King gave our people a chance to dress up and shine in a Sunday evening of glory. That’s the image we ought to remember, because everyone else wants to obliterate any image of greatness among Black people.”
