The Freedom Shirt Dress, is a flattering silhouette that works for every body shape. Wear it as a dress or with pants.


The Story Behind The Dress: The Freedom Dress has been Inspired by one of India’s greatest poets, Amrita Pritam. Her works mostly revolve around the turbulent times and theme of India’s partition, and the violence of the freedom struggle. She was considered to be the voice of feminism in the aftermath of India’s partition in 1947. In her long life and career, she wrote over 100 poems and shaped the future of literature for women. The women in Pritam’s characters were a reflection of how she lived her life - on her own terms, determined to unshackle herself from social norms and seize freedoms. The idea with this free size dress silhouette is to allow freedom from conventional sizing and structure.


The art of weaving Kota Doria cotton has been passed through generations of weavers in Kota, a town situated in eastern parts of Rajasthan, India. The unique "khat" or squared check pattern of this handloom woven fabric is unlike any other textile. The word "Doria" comes from the Hindi word, "Dori" which means threads.

The Kota Doria fabric for this dress has been sourced right from the source in Kaithun, Kota, from an social enterprise that trains women weavers to produce this delicate fabric.

The floral blockprint is an Ayesha original and has been developed by fifth- generation , Indian National Award winner master block printer, Santosh Kumar Dhanopia of Sanganer, Jaipur.
