Quality is a top priority for VDD Co. When you add a Made in the USA Virginia Dare Dress to your wardrobe, you are investing in a timeless staple.

Rebekah shares some inspiration behind her brand name:
“Our name comes from Virginia Dare, the first English girl born in the New World in 1587. She’s associated with courage, a daring spirit, adventure, and innocence—all characteristics that we aspire to. Today, Virginia Dare Dress Co. is intent on finding our kindreds, creating clothes that make their hearts sing, and putting quality and thoughtfulness first, in all that we do.“

We value generosity, meaningful relationships, thoughtfulness, and quality of craftsmanship over quantity and speed; our products are designed to be wardrobe staples that will serve you for years to come, made under ethical conditions, and purchased by you with intention and delight.“
