We created WICK with the goal of making these dilemmas a thing of the past. Our dresses, skirts, and tops are made from performance activewear fabric that you would wear to work out or do yoga, so they dry off quickly when you sweat and won’t cling uncomfortably. Plus, we’ve designed them with function in mind. 

Our skirts and some dresses include pockets to hold your phone, cards, cash, keys, etc. We’ve built in bras and shorts in pieces that need them so our wearers can stay safely covered. Everything is professionally and originally designed and totally machine washable, so you’ll still look great but won’t have to worry about spills or dry-cleaning. 

Watch as the 38th dress takes on a major spill and keeps even a super absorbent paper towel DRY right underneath. The best part is that it's not just the 38th--All of our pieces keep you this Party-Proof:

Risks and challenges

We have every reason to expect to meet our estimated ship date. Our world-class manufacturer is located in New York City, which makes it simple for us to oversee production and monitor for quality. Additionally, our fabric is already in the cutting room ready to go, and as you can see, we've already made samples that are ready to be produced on a larger scale. That being said, unexpected challenges are inevitable in the fashion industry and delays may occur. We will make every effort to meet our estimated shipping date and will absolutely keep you updated with any obstacles that may change our timeline.
