I honestly think this dress is mediocre. It is fine and it is cute, but Lirika herself has some much better designs. The first time I saw this I sincerely thought it was a Strawberry Shortcake cosplay.

Lol i bet that "it's overpriced" comes from people that haven't sew thing in their life.

About the labour thing yeah pretty much a huge population here is underpaid because there are too many unemployed/starving ppl and not enough jobs so people literally take what they can get if it gets them food for a few days

If the cleavage was not... THAT, it would be a cute dress for a kid for up to 7 years of age. Add that pointlessly cut cleavage and suddenly every adult ass wants it - whether because "im a babbi gurl princess" or "i want to objectify a child but that's illegal" is irrelevant. Can't see it as either aesthetically pleasing or well-designed or fitting anything further than a kindergarten party.

“It’s too expensive, you can just buy the fabric online :(((“ hAVE YOU EVER TRIED SEWING TULLE??? Tulle will make you regret every decision that brought you to the point where you’re sewing tulle.

Nope. It is too expensive. You need to make raw material expensive so people will buy manufactured goods. And that makes more money. 60 dollars for a yard is way too expensive. And 40 dollars for cotton is even more so. I live in india and fast fashion hasn't penetrated too much in small towns and people still buy a lot of fabric. There are lots of local tailors and boutique and many women still sew their clothes themselves. "Good" fabric here isn't as expensive as it is in west. On the other hand, the shops of yarns have completely disappeared. People mostly buy readymade winter wears. And it is expensive to make sweaters on your own. The thing that actually affects the price is durability and time spent on a dress. If it is handmade by a seamstress, unlike mass produced in a factory in third world country, it is going to cost a lot more.

And how much does an average prom dress cost? I think so many people just want something for nothing and throw tantrums when they can't have it.

This is similar to how people get mad at the prices of modern art. Like the thought behind art counts more and that’s why they are priced the way they are!

I noticed that when you talked about the bottom ruffle, you figured out it was a different fabric because it didn't have strawberries. I've been following lirika matoshi for years now, and I've seen various stories which explained and showed that the sequins are all hand sown... Pretty crazy, and I think that makes the price rise up even more. I'm not sure if they still sew them by hand now, since the brand has become more popular and definitely has more request

The other day i saw a youtuber's video and the comments were complaning about the price of her knitted vests. Saying that there was no way someone could knit it in 2-3 days (they alleged they had to take more, but like when you're an expert, you're an expect), it was too expensive, and they could do it for much less with yarn from the local store and all that. And I was reading thinking that if you don't think that a woman sitting for three whole days HAND KNITTING a vest (taking in account the knitters are at home) is worthy of money, just someone's work, you're the reason why zara and other fast fashion stores are strong as ever. The dress is "expensive" but also, if could afford to wear it i'd sleep on it because it's so cute and it doesn't say "LIRIKA MATOSHI" anywhere visible just like... must "expensive" brands,

designer clothes cost money, people just are complaining because they need something to complain about during quarantine
Part of the trouble is that some items do legit cost that much to make, esp from small-scale designers, but there are also super-expensive brands who use sweat shop-style production, and in those cases we are paying the premium purely for their marketing campaigns+profit

You can get good fabric for a LOT less than $40 per yard. Not a lot of people can afford to spend that much on fabric and the people who can afford that kind of money would just buy it ready made. Maybe silk or leather or something hard to produce like those, would be more expensive. Or maybe there is a big difference in your countries vs the us.

It may be a difference in opinion of “good fabric” since she prioritizes natural fibers and such. It very well could be a country-specific pricing difference though

This video is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS! It's as if you're implying that people are so used to fast fashion and cheap fabric at slave wages that when someone makes a quality dress, with quality fabric and livable wages we now have to pay for the artistic labor????? THE AUDACITY!

I looked up at their website. It is the typical story of a designer that worked her way up. Started on Etsy and now is having some success. If Lirika Matoshi was drawing in money she would have her friends and family modeling the designs.

First, I must say I like your videos, I have learned a lot from you. 👍When it comes to particularly this video, since I live in Serbia (which Kosovo is a part of) I can give some extra info: we have fabrics stores that sell their goods in kilos. This way, fabrics are way cheaper- once, while I was buying there, I saw a renowned Serbian designer buying there as well. 🧐 The other thing is black market- a lot of seamstresses work for a low wage, without being paid for any kind of security. People are so underpaid here- it is not enough to survive, so we rely on each other in many ways. There are also many cases of getting your minimal wage through bank account and then giving a part of that money back in cash to your employer. The third thing is, selling online was (maybe still is) a paradise here, since you can avoid a lot of taxes. To conclude, you pay for the design. 👍 It is expensive for Serbian market, but these local designers' target market are mainly singers here. 👍

Anyone who sews garments knows how much clothing ACTUALLY costs. Nothing makes you balk at how cheap fast fashion is like making clothes. Fabric itself is expensive! Let alone labor hours that go into it and on top of that all the sequins, zippers, laces, ties, trims, etc. $400 for that dress? Yeah absolutely. Do I get ppl not wanting to drop that? Yeah absolutely. But its about the right value for the dress.

It's not overprized at all consider it's made by a independant designer. But not everybody can afford it. It's beautiful and if someone who wanted it can't afford it, you can buy a knockoff. Maybe it's not ok to buy a knockoff but if it's in your budget I don't see the problen. But the dress in itself is not overprized.

I saw a girl making handmade earrings for $10, and oh my god. People were attacking her. They said that looks cheap, that's too much money, blah blah. When someone tried explaining to one girl that it's a fair price for materials and time. The girl basically said "why does she need to be paid for time?" Like I'm sorry what. That's how jobs work

I’m making a dress from a commercial pattern right now, it already cost me $300+ in materials alone. Another $200ish for me not to have to do hours on work to put it together and for it to be sewn almost perfectly sounds like a heck of a deal to me. I make a lot of different things and people often say “omg, you could sell that, people would buy it” and I always have to respond that I’d have to charge way more than people want to pay just to cover my time alone.

I chalk up the interest in this dress to nostalgia. I totally had a strawberry dress when I was little. Does that mean that I would wear one now? Nope. But I could see someone who has fond memories of a dress like that getting one.

I kind of can’t stand when people come in out of nowhere to criticize a niche industry or creative space!! Like I once read a bad review for a sewing machine repair service because they were quoted like $80 repair for a $90 sewing machine. That’s a you problem for only spending $90 on something that you clearly need help to fix! Or another person who wanted a large sofa _completely_ reupholstered and was shocked that taking all the fabric off of an article of furniture and recovering it in what is likely to be superior techniques would be so costly just because the starting point was an inexpensive couch! Like, by what logic?? Orrr people who don’t like hip hop and don’t regularly listen to hip hop coming out of the woodwork to let us know that they don’t approve of the WAP song. Like hi, who are you?! Just don’t listen maybe?? Like I do not have $500 for a dress, but I still don’t think that’s a crazy amount to spend on a nice dress! 🤷🏻‍♀️

On the flip side, this is why it's so good to learn sewing. You can just pay for the fabric itself and none of the production costs. You don't have to worry about encouraging virtually free labor (except for the labor involved in producing the fabric, thread, and tools you need, which you need to worry about with any other clothes anyway and can be remedied by buying from independent sellers), and best of all, you get too choose every single aspect of the clothing, from the size to the style to the materials.

When I got married in 2009 I tried on a bunch of wedding dresses for inspiration because I planned to make my own... then I found EXACTLY what I wanted, in my size (ivory instead of white, v- waist, poofy at the hips because I have a minimal hip-waist ratio, and 3/4 sleeves for a November wedding in Canada) in a discontinued bin for $500 at a wedding show. I'd recently been fabric shopping and I knew I was going to pay at least $300 for materials. Also I'd never made a bodice so... adding to that I had no idea what I was doing,.... I bought the dress. And for I think another $40 when I brought the dress in to be steamed before the wedding, I had the store that sold me the dress add opaque panels into the sleeves (upper arm was too sheer), stitch pushup cups right into it so I didn't need a bra, and put a zipper in the back because NO to 25 buttons. Damn good deal. Put it over a thrift store hoop skirt instead of renting a crinoline, and it hid my black cowboy boots just fine (my mom told me in no uncertain terms that I was NOT getting married in cowboy boots, but it was my wedding and my dress and my feet so I did what I wanted and it was awesome to not be hopping lame from high heels at the end of the night).

It's not the price that is the issue. The real issue is how hideous that dress is, and why such a buzz should have happened over such a thing. I think it's to do with a yearning to an earlier romanticised 'safer' era.

I think that it didn't look that good on Tess for more reasons than her being fat. I mean, yeah, her body type sorta negated the light-poofy look of the dress because there was a lot of padding underneath, which changed how it hung and made it look more solid, but it was much more than that. The red-pink dress color clashed with her brown-red hair color and her grey tattoo color, and the pattern of her tattoos also clashed with the strawberry pattern. Also that drag-queen-level eye makeup did not go well with the soft cottage core look of the dress - made the whole thing look sorta rockabilly. Sorry Tess, ya just wore it badly.

I completely agree that fast fashion is unethical and has spoiled us, but please remember that a lot of us can't afford to buy clothing ethically because we live paycheck to paycheck and clothing that is cheap and usable is what we must be confined to. I condemn people who buy those cheap 5 dollar dresses to keep up with trends, but some of us buy that 5 dollar dress because at that point, we can't afford much else. Clothing and how we consume it is a very multifaceted issue, and we should try and consider it from multiple angles.

It's important to mention that the designer and her sis (the sister also has a fashion brand, a bit more high end) are both creating jobs for women in Kosovo, which is crucial to pick up the economy after the war. Such a nice move from their side, giving back to the community. Only makes me want to support them more!
