After decades of putting together outfits and fabric combinations, I was moved to create the hard to find comfy outfit for practically every occasion. This sparked the birth of our brand with my need to create for those like myself; the consumer who is constantly on the search for elegant easy wear and care.
One Essence by Dilee Inc., offers garments that have been designed and manufactured to be closer to Mother Nature. Made in Los Angeles, USA, we utilize botanicals to plant dye styles that feel like harvested apparel. Many designs are compostable. Even dress shirts have buttons from coconut shells!
Botanical/herb/plant dyed colors: Blue shades from the Indigo plant, Purple/Lavender shades from the Logwood plant, Gray from Iron and Logwood and/or Wattle with the Indigo plant, Tan/Cafe from Coffee, Henna and/or Fustic plant, Green shades from Weld Flowers and the Indigo plant, Pink/Peach shades from Madder Roots, Blush Cafe shades from Wattle.
We also offer synthetic fabric garments that are slenderizing and that have been tried and true for comfort and care at home; even the sequin garments can be sprayed with plant based soap, rinsed and hung to dry in the shower.
The synthetic garments were created as comfortable works of art to live and travel. The fabrics sit well for long hours on a plane since they do not wrinkle easily. They also stand the test of time in looking great after an extended wear kind of day. Some of the garments can go straight from a flight to dinner to a special occasion event. My hope is to inspire the wearer to feel at their optimum to be the best they can be. Only you can make a better you and as the Founder I’d like to help empower each customer to feel their best to be their best.
