Ebonique Collection Lookbook #1

The Ebonique Collection is a range of wearable staples, designed for people who love functional, elegant garments that can be dressed up or down. Our Sweetheart Tops are made with a soft bamboo jersey which accommodates a great fit across a range of shapes but were specifically patterned to fit a larger bust. These tops come in four styles, featuring an exquisite Leavers lace or Italian power net. The Pencil Dresses are cut to accentuate your curves to breathtaking effect. Made of a stretch Rayon blend ponte, they are firm and comfortable. The Ebonique Skirts were inspired by vintage designs and are cleverly cut to accentuate your waist. The skirts are available in black, or with a burgundy and lace front (which matches the tops). Made with a luxurious delustered  satin and lined in cupro (a hypoallergenic fabric made from cotton) they feel absolutely incredible against your skin. And the best bit is they have pockets! We believe fashion should be functional as well as beautiful, don’t you agree?

The collection can be mixed and matched with your existing wardrobe, worn as pictured and is perfect to wear with corsets. The corsets pictured here are our Emmelie and Alecto underbust styles from our made-to-order range. These corsets are handmade by Vanyanís designer Lowana O’Shea.

At Vanyanís, we believe in slow fashion – high quality, versatile pieces made to last – not fast fads to be discarded in a few months. Rather than a passing trend, we focus on fashion as an investment; a Vanyanís wardrobe is a collection of timeless favourites made with quality and ethics at the fore, because we pride ourselves on paying a living wage.

Model Sizes & Garment Fit Notes

To assist you in assessing the fit of these garments and how they may fit your own figure, here you will find some notes about the models specs and the garment sizes they’re wearing.

The first model pictured is Morgana. Her measurements are:

Morgana is wearing a size 8 in the tops and skirts and a size 20″ in our corsets (pictured with a small gap due to the newness of the corsets). Her measurements are nearly a perfect match to our sizing chart.
