Tangelo Mama dress & lei

This 'Mama' dress by Auckland label Papa Clothing is a one-size, genderless, minimalist take on the classic mu’umu’u (audio description below). A staple item for the label, it is named after designer Keva Rand’s own mother. "This shape is her favourite and looks so beautiful on her." The lei - the Doily Daisy Chain is made by Fran Allison.
