For me, Blue District was love at first site. I discovered the brand at last year’s Vegan Fashion Week in Los Angeles where I also met met their designer and CEO Cici Voise. I laid my eyes on one of their jackets and ordered it on the spot to receive it swiftly a couple of days after (I am wearing it on my signature picture by the way!). A year later, it is still my favorite wardrobe item.
Blue District is a brand for mindful trendsetters, their vibe is modern, sleek and yet very romantic. Fully vegan and ethically made using eco-friendly and recycled textiles, the brand can dress you up from head to toe, offering a full spectrum of apparel and accessories. I was just needing an excuse to share their beautiful designs, and now that they released MOMENTS, their newest party wear collection, I am thrilled to present their chic designs made for your special occasions.
The Moments Collection is perfect for engagements, bridal showers, bridesmaids, wedding guests, rehearsal dinners and any special moments in and outside your wedding celebrations. The Collection consists of 42 new looks, and here are some of my favorites.
The Now Dress is a midi piece. It has intricate crochet work all throughout its overlay layer, an invisible back zipper and has emphasized shoulder sleeves.
The Tempo Dress is a sweet maxi with a boho flare. Its pastel hue and intricate lace overlay is making it the perfect event dress. It has soft short ruffle sleeves, an invisible zipper, large bottom hem ruffle and a matching wait tie.
The Prime Dress is a midi beauty. It is a A-line shape with an off shoulder design. It has intricate crochet design all over its overlay piece and a soft and stretchy lining.

This ensemble makes us dream of sandy warmer days. The Dial Tank Top is a soft knit. It has a natural stretch and feel very comfortably soft to wear. The Pico Shorts are pleated with a full satin lining, an invisible back zipper, crochet ropes detailing on the waistband and the hems, little beads dangling on its bottom hem and an asymmetrical cut making it shorter laterally for a sexy reveal of the side leg.
The Nano Dress is a maxi beauty. With its very soft bamboo fabric and its airy movement, it has a nice weight to it making it fall perfectly on the body. It has an extra long wrap waist tie for an edgy design, a V neckline, crochet details on the shoulder and is fully lined of the same fabric.
