I was walking around the farmer’s market when I saw a young woman wearing a beautiful, flowy, feminine dress and just had to stop and ask her where she bought it. It turns out her friend Emily Cadenhead, a local designer and mother, created the dress for her clothing line Daughters of the Revolution. You can imagine how excited I was to learn that Daughters of the Revolution is committed to sustainable design. The family run team works on a micro-level to carefully select ethically and environmentally responsible techniques for their garments which are a combination of organic fabrics, natural fibers and silks that are dipped in chemical-free vegetable dyes. Most of their sequins and beadwork are also made of recycled materials.
Emily created this clothing line to evoke the sensibility of freedom, nature, love, and femininity that have marked her life. Her parents are hippies who live an environmentally friendly lifestyle, which liberally encourages creativity. Growing up in Malibu and Palm Springs with nature outside her window, Emily spent most of her upbringing painting and drawing. In 2007, she started Daughters of the Revolution with a small collection of hand painted dresses. Today, Emily’s print designs echo nature and fairytales with recurring motifs of flowers, seashells, feathers, animal and ethnic prints.
The focus of her designs are comfort above all else, therefore developing a loyal following of women from around the world. Her dresses have been seen on celebrities like Anne Hathaway, Eva Mendes, Elle Macpherson, Rachel McAdams, an expecting Alyson Hannigan, and second time new mamas, Kate Hudson and Kimberly Van der Beek. My favorite design is the Butterfly Dress – it’s very versatile and can be worn in the city or country, day or night and will flatter any shape. It’s also very nursing friendly.
