It is currently the best-selling item from Matoshi’s collection. However, the relatively expensive dress did not stop fashion lovers from adoring it. The viral dress has led to a deluge of fan art and artists have made their own versions, much cheaper knock-off versions of the dress, so that everyone can purchase it.

The price tag has not hindered the popularity of Matoshi’s dress. The obvious reason the dress is so popular is because people think it is universally pretty, and available to many sizes, which is at times, pretty rare.

The sweet strawberry print dress seems deeply nostalgic, reminiscing to a time long before the pandemic, a childhood innocence. “Most of my designs are inspired by my childhood. I feel like the things that make me feel better are the strawberries, the dress, the gowns, nature in general,” Matoshi was quoted saying in Vogue. It’s really gorgeous, and the beautiful dress leaves nothing for doubt as to why it is garnering such massive attention on the internet.
