Any fashion designer who gets their clothes illustrated by Rose Blake for their look book is fine by us! Even better when the clothes to go with it are fun, well-designed and genuinely wearable. Louise Markey is an Australian designer who now resides in the UK where she provides the public with a tomboyish set of clothing made of well-sourced fabrics in bright, cheerful colours.
After completing a Masters at Central St Martins Louise decided to fill a hole in the market with her ready-to-wear, well-considered pieces and caught the attention of Burberry and other luxury fashion houses for which she consults and designs. So far so good for Louise, and we’re certain from the look of her SS 2014 collection that next year’s going to bring very exciting things for her.
