Read on to find out more.
Where did the Strawberry Dress come from?
The Strawberry dress had been circulating round TikTok, Twitter and Instagram, and has even been turned into drawings and cartoons by artists.
If you’re wondering where this dress actually came from then then answer is Lirika Matoshi. The Kosovo designer created the dress, and the dress was worn to the 2020 Grammy’s by model Tess Holliday.
It’s no surprise that the dress has taken over the internet, it is soft pink, embroidered with sparkling strawberries and is made of a gorgeous tulle material.
The puffy sleeves, intricate details and mid length of the dress has made it the dream dress for all cottagecore lovers online.
Where can you buy the Strawberry Dress?
The original dress can be bought for $490 on Lirika’s website. The website describes the dress:
“The perfect head turner dress featured by a midi dress silhouette covered in glittery strawberries. The tie up detail and the puffy sleeves make the dress even more fabulous. The dresses length from waist down is 33 inches. Made of 100% polyamide tulle, pvc glitter, environmental protection glue.
Due to the high price, several TikTok accounts have taken it upon themselves to recreate the dress. They did not copy the design completely, but added their own special features, such as a scooping neckline, or a larger belt.
One Twitter fan even created a virtual version of the dress on Animal Crossing New Horizons!
Where can you find dupes of the Strawberry Dress?
Places such as Amazon and Wish sell dupes of the dress for around $20, although for such a low price, you may not receive the same level of quality. Some people have taken to Twitter to discuss the moral implications of buying ‘dupes’ of the dress. One user said:
“The normalization of buying knock-offs of the strawberry dress (or any independent designers work) because it’s cheaper and a “good dupe” makes me sick.”
Another wrote: “Buy some strawberry fabric and make your own Oh you can’t just magically know how to sew a dress that fits and drapes like it? So you agree… sewing is a learned skill and thus a trade and thus should be paid for fairly.” She continued:
“At the end of the day tho it’s YOUR money. You spend it how you want. But please don’t be upset at independent designers and artists being protective of their livelihoods and pricing themselves fairly.”
