According to Vogue,[2] the dress grew in popularity in conjunction with the rise of the lifestyle aesthetic cottagecore, which romanticizes nature and whimsy. They write, "The dress also falls neatly in line with the rise of 'cottagecore,' an aesthetic defined by rural bliss--picture a world in which you make your own jam and read Jane Austen on repeat. There’s a popular song on cottagecore TikTok called 'Look at you strawberry blonde,' which pairs nicely with the dress."

They continue to explain that the designer "gifted the dress to influencers and celebs," as well their selling of a "coordinating mask" (shown below).
