No.3 The OTTAVIA Floral Cotton Mini Dress


The FRARLIBETH floral print made its debut in Monaco for SS23. Harriet Ruscoe is the talent behind these exquisite florals. Harriet drew and painted each flower by hand which was then transformed into a digital print ready to come alive on fabric. For Spring 2024, a new fabric has been selected allowing the blooming flowers to be even more vivid. The print has been enlarged for the OTTAVIA dress, allowing the flowers to take over the dress creating a piece of artwork you can wear. 


The OTTAVIA is handmade in the UK by FRARLIBETH founder, Frances Elizabeth. The brand started out with a ‘handmade to order’ process, each design created from scratch by Frances for over 4 years. As the brand has grown, production is now in the care of the skilled seamstresses in Zhejiang however Frances wishes to continue the ‘Handmade By Frances’ legacy in a small special way. There will be a design handmade by Frances for each collection that will be made in limited quantities, these pieces are FRARLIBETH exclusives. 


FRARLIBETH was on location at one of London’s hidden gems, The Landmark, for the Debut Spring collection. The Spring 2024 vision imagined by founder, Frances Elizabeth, experimenting with unique silhouettes and textures.
