THE STORY

 

THE LOVE SHIRT DRESS

 

Meet your new go-to dress. 

We couldn't help but kick off the new Yabin collection with anything else but this shirt dress. We're all about creating love. This dress embodies everything we wish the world would be. Just a lot of LOVE in all shapes and sizes!. Shirt dresses are an ultimate essential for any casual wardrobe. We've taken everything you already love about shirt dresses like comfort and convenience, and put a Yabin twist on it. It's time to unleash your inner child, explore your fashion sense, and spread love. 

Feel confident and free in this light and breezy shirt dress that quite literally, screams love! After all, couldn't we all use a little more love in the world? We think so. At Yabin, we enjoy creating clothing that doesn't just look and feel great on the body; we want the person wearing our garments to feel confident, empowered, and free. This dress is everything. It's playful, colorful, sexy, classy, and feminine - all in one! 

We specifically designed this shirt dress in the hopes of spreading some much-needed joy into our current, rather dark world. Is your inner child looking to break free? Create a magical moment by spreading love and happiness to those around you. 

The LOVE Shirt Dress is an elegant and versatile piece of contemporary fashion for the modern woman who wears her heart on her sleeve (literally). The oversize shirt dress is made from 100% mid-weight cotton, with a classic fuse front placket, buttoning up the front and tying at the collar with a statement peach/pink velour ribbon. peach/pink love heart motifs pepper the white cotton, while the word ‘LOVE’, written in Yabin’s own hand, is scattered liberally about the dress. In one of four iterations of the shirt dress, the LOVE message is echoed, in a bold font on the 3/4 length sleeves ensuring the message of hope is heard by everyone. The sculptural curved hemline on each oversize shirt dress means it can be worn on its own creating a striking, leg-centric dramatic and chic silhouette; or it can just as easily be paired with a jean, a tailored short, a pencil skirt, Louboutin heels or a much loved pair of converse trainers. Finally, Yabin has embroidered his name on the inside of the cuff, a secret communication of affection between the wearer and the designer. Yabin’s attention to detail and passion for design is visible in every detail, not least his considerate inclusion of two side pockets for the wearers’ convenience. 

The LOVE Shirt dress is the first ready to wear piece from Yabin’s brand new eponymous label, and available in four designs, in sizes Small through to Extra Large. 

 

We have partnered with Fashion Stars For A Cause who organizes social gatherings around an issue that is often whispered about. The organizer, Yvonne Crum and her team realized those who had chosen suicide all wanted one thing in common. Hope! And the greatest examples of hope are the young people who desire to be good stewards of their community. Crum realized the best way to involve the community in raising awareness and funds to provide hope was to select a dozen women annually to serve as fundraising ambassadors. These ambassadors, or Fashion Stars, work tirelessly to promote and sell raffle tickets for the annual Fashion Stars for a Cause signature event, which is a celebration of fashion and compassion. Since the beginning of Fashion Stars, more than $2 million has been raised for the Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas in support of providing hope and saving lives. The Fashion Stars Gala black tie event will resume on October 23, 2021 at the Dallas Country Club. 

 

A portion of the proceeds from the LOVE Shirt Dress will benefit the Suicide & Crisis Center of North Texas, Helping those in crisis, especially suicidal crisis, find hope for the future.
