Penelope Dress


Our Singapore Stories Collection, The Picnic, is a reflection of the island’s vibrancy combined with the joy and spirit of Lily & Lou. Leveraging on our tech capabilities, we’ve created customizable pieces that carry hints of traditional Asia and showcase classic artisan techniques such as quilting. Rooted in tradition, we hope to paint a picture of positivity for the future that is true to our brand’s philosophy.

Singapore Stories is a national design competition organized by the Textile and Fashion Federation Singapore. Click here to find out more. 


The Penelope Dress, or the Flying Dragon, features a tent silhouette and a gingham lined camisole slip. The dragon appliqué is an Asian Civilisations Museum inspired motif and is created with a mixed of Batik and modern textiles.

Each pattern within the dragon appliqué is an independent piece that is carefully cut and finished with a layer of tulle. The pieces are then strategically draped onto the dress before we stitch them down. The dress might look effortless, it takes approximately 30 hours to complete! 🥲

Style is an up-cycled piece and may vary individually as it is highly dependent on availability of fabric. Made-to-order and made-to-measure. Please select the closest size and our team will be in touch for consultation. Lead time of 4 - 6 weeks.
