 Becket is a collection of beautiful dresses created by Bunny Donahue, a dress designer with over 20 years of industry experience.  These dresses are made of the finest European fabrics, some of which have been printed exclusively from art created by Bunny, and inspired by the gorgeous countryside of the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut.

These dresses are all produced in the best and most reputable factories in the Garment District of New York City.  So not only are the dresses beautiful, and have a flattering fit, they are domestically produced right here in the United States.  

Risks and challenges

I have over 20 years of dress design experience. I have launched major dress brands successfully, selling thousands of units to stores like Macy's, Nordstrom, and Lord & Taylor, to name just a few. Becket has been booked by specialty retailers throughout the US, and is currently in production with Fall shipments going out starting in mid-August. With backer's support, I can continue building the Becket brand for production of Spring 15! Plans to expand distribution to Europe and Latin America are in the works! Be a part of building an exciting new domestic dress brand globally!
