When my daughter came along, I relished the opportunity to dress her in cute little skirts, frocks and girly things. But it wasn’t until I discovered I Love Gorgeous that the real fun began.
Gorgeously whimsical with a touch of vintage style, their clothes are not only well made but utterly beautiful too. The spring summer 2011 collection from this UK designer label encompasses everything you could want from a girls’ collection – comfort, longevity and a very distinct feminine style that will have other parents weak with curiosity.
Great design aside, it’s the unique blend of materials and fresh colours that make I Love Gorgeous a standout brand. Cotton pieces are mixed in with moss crepe, viscose chiffon, silk and georgette – all trimmed with eclectically beautiful fragments of sari, lace, ric rac and even lurex. But perhaps most importantly, they are designed with plenty of movement and swish to keep little ballerinas happy.
The latest range features floaty frocks, gorgeous skirts, cardigans, vests and accessories, all perfect for the Aussie climate. We love the baby Daisy dress for a christening while the adorable pink Sophie is the epitome of a perfect party dress. If only they came in adult sizes!
Local stockists Ocean and Sand carry a limited range, with prices from $54 to $189, or head straight to I Love Gorgeous to see the full collection. International shipping from the UK to Australia is available and sizes run from birth to fifteen years.
