All the details on the pathbreaking Greek label Gigi Hadid wore for her maternity photoshoot
Have you explored Di Petsa, yet?
Trust Gigi Hadid to be ahead of the curve in absolutely everything. For her maternity photoshoot that has been making waves on social media the supermodel chose to wear a custom-made number from the newest Spring/Summer lineup of Greek inter-disciplinary artist and designer Dmitri Di Petsa, whose 'wet look' dresses have found some major love from A-listers like FKA Twigs and Kylie Jenner. Her London-based label Di Petsa is one of the most interesting young names in the conscious fashion spectrum.
Di Petsa's work explores female sexuality and the nuances of the feminine form. In fact, her signature wet look dresses are meant to dismantle the patriarchal ethic that surrounds the notions of dryness. "You can' cry in public. You can't breastfeed in public, you can't sweat," the designed had remarked in a recent interview.
The Greek designer debuted the wet look dresses at the last London Fashion Week where the designer herself flaunted one of her designs to showcase them at the pathbreaking nature-inspired show titled 'Water Broke.' The millennial Central Martins graduate also revealed that each dress features intricate hand embroidery that takes three weeks to finish.
FKA Twigs had worn one of Di Petsa's wet dresses for one of her gigs earlier this year, while Kylie had worn it for one of Kylie Cosmetics' commercial campaigns. In fact, the wet look dress has also found a lot of popularity in the bespoke bridal spectrum, and millennial creative Andrea Veltom recently wore Di Petsa's sheer wet dress for her own wedding.
