Combining fashion with function, it’s no wonder Johanna Ortiz' women's dresses are so covetable. The brand’s commitment to expert craftsmanship endures, with each piece using materials such as cotton. Specialising in elevated essentials that are made to last, the label’s range has something to suit every shopper. The label’s designs come in a range of colours and textures, too. By taking time to care for your cotton, you’ll ensure your item remains beautiful for years to come. Cotton dresses are durable, but do require special attention when cleaning. We would advise always checking the item’s care label before washing. Cotton is durable, soft and comfortable, but it does need to be cared for properly to ensure it doesn’t shrink. Whether it is made from pure cotton or a cotton-blend, any garments that contain cotton are prone to shrinkage when exposed to heat. To prevent items from shrinking, always follow the instructions on the care label carefully and machine wash at a temperature of 30°C or below. Gently stretch cotton to restore the original shape and air dry naturally. For dresses that take design to the next level, shop all the brand’s latest styles at Lyst.
