ABOUT

Dagny started from a seemingly simple quest to find a stylish, yet sustainably-made dress. Founder and creative director, Christina Castle, searched for a dress that was as fashionable as it was sustainable, and came up empty-handed. Existing sustainable brands only offered styles that were either too skimpy or too frumpy, too boring or too expensive. Christina founded Dagny for women who, like her, want to dress responsibly, but without compromising their unique style, love of colour, and high standards for perfect fit and luxury fabric. Dagny, which means “new day” in Old Norse, offers women a collection of beautifully designed, consciously sourced, and ethically made garments.”
