Partnership Editions x BIAS: The Artist's Slip Dress
We are thrilled to present our first artist-designed fashion line, in collaboration with BIAS. Three 100% silk slip dresses have been designed by Venetia Berry, Julianna Byrne and Rose Electra Harris, in their signature styles using artworks created especially for this collaboration - brought to life on the timeless BIAS silk slip.
BIAS and Partnership Editions are united in their shared philosophy that beautiful things should be coveted and kept forever, therefore each dress is made with the finest quality silk, and we have limited each artist's dress to an edition of 100. Every dress will be numbered so you know exactly which edition is unique to you, and to confirm their authenticity and status as collector's items.
The first 25 of each design will be going live exclusively on Partnership Editions (on this page) on 5th August. Each dress will be priced £295 (+ shipping) and they will come in a range of sizes.
BIAS launched in 2019 catching the eye of the press and the fashion world alike with their timeless slip dresses, produced in seasonal colours and prints which are made in small runs and editions. Cut on the bias and made from 100% silk, BIAS dresses are designed to be versatile and universally flattering. They go against the fast fashion cycle, working in small runs to avoid unnecessary stock waste and producing beautifully made dresses that can be worn for years.
“I wanted to create something that would look beautiful as an evening outfit. Bias’ colour ‘Midnight Blue’ immediately made me think of a night’s sky, and I thought an arrangement of moons, stars and suns would look playful but also very elegant.”
Rose Electra Harris: TheWild Romance
"I’ve spent the last three months really focusing on drawing Spring flowers, in particular the brilliant parrot tulip. I love their full, scalloped, fringed, sometimes jagged petals in contrast to the smooth flowing leaves. I wanted to create a large, bold print, really encapsulating this time of year.”
Venetia Berry: The Blue Moon
“When working on this piece I was trying to reflect the idea of peaceful and celestial energy. Keeping enough negative space between each drawing and not overworking the piece felt important to me whilst I was working on it. I found myself thinking a lot about the work of Joan Miro when working on the design. I find something especially tranquil about the idea of the celestial, particularly at the moment whilst the world is experiencing a lot of pain.”
Partnership Editions Founder, Georgia Spray: “We are thrilled to be partnering with a brand whose philosophy is so aligned with ours. We are both firm believers that quality is so much more important than quantity. The elegant silk slip dress is such a timeless design that will never go out of fashion and the simplicity of its design is a blank canvas for the artists to work with, letting the artwork take centre stage. Each piece is a wearable work of art - a collector’s item and provides the perfect addition to your art collection. We invite you to explore this alternative way to support your favourite PE artists.”
