I've never made any secret of how much I love Australian frocks and the new Summer Goddess collection from Miss Lyndel Yeo is no exception. I got these gorgeous pics today from the lovely Lyndel and just have to share them with you. These are just the kind of gorgeous Australian frocks to make a big impression as we start into the silly season.
This collection is described as having a "gorgeous pallet of hazy sunset shades, carefully balanced with a mix of floating silks". This along with the dramatic styles and cut of the dresses is everything devotees of this label have come to expect. Miss Lyndel Yeo does frocks well. I'm sure you'll agree this talented designer's latest summer styles are no exception!
So without further ado - the Summer Goddess collection from Miss Lyndel Yeo!

Ever fancied sitting in the front rows at the shows a-la Anna Wintour - well Vivienn brings the next best thing to us mere mortals through a unique 'showcase' format. Designers whose collections are presented through Vivienn get the opportunity to showcase their collection to the public as it was intended to be seen. In this way the complete collection of Australian fashion is presented. This allows the story behind the design to be revealed to the buyer, rather than simply being presented a series of items on a rack in a store.
A certain number of items are held in stock at the store, but primarily customers view the collections and select items they like during a pre-order phase. For those fiscally challenged customers who can't live without high-end fashion, a 30% deposit is paid to secure their order, instead of the lump sum at once, with 2 further instalments and the final balance paid upon delivery. This lay-by system means you can not only purchase your Australian fashion online, you can own an item without paying the whole price at once.
What I like best about Vivienn is that it has a strong online presence and a commitment to making Australian fashion globally accessible (which is after all what I'm trying to focus on here). With spring fast approaching, here are some fabulous floral fashion items available from Vivienn now - these are guaranteed to have you hanging out for summer and the warm weather!
