Beautiful, Limited Edition, Easy To Wear, Silk Garments. Designed To Flatter Most Body Shapes, With Versatility In Mind.

Hello,
firstly thank you for taking the time to read about my label. I have a degree in Fashion & Textile Design, from the University of Technology Sydney, Australia, and I worked in the rag trade for 14 years from the early 90's. Since then I have worked in a number of different industries and I recently started up the Akoya Resort Label because I have really missed working with fashion. At 54 years of age, it's been pretty daunting re-entering this field - so much has changed! But I'm feeling blessed, despite the steep learning curve. Today's technology has allowed me to fulfil my creative side in new and exciting ways, especially in the area of textile design.

Akoya Resort was born out of my love of prints and flowing, easy to wear clothing that feels just as wonderful as it looks. My garments are cut to flatter most body shapes, & I specialise in classic styles that I hope will become wardrobe staples for my customers for years to come. I design the prints & garments in Brisbane, Australia, and my pieces are produced in limited quantities by a small team in India. I am eternally grateful to work with this amazing group of people, who not only bring my prints and designs to life, but do the most beautiful, quality work. It took a long time to find the right team & I feel blessed to work with them. When you purchase from the Akoya range, you are buying a unique, limited edition garment, that supports the global community & sustainable fashion.

I love working with silk. It's environmentally friendly, it's cool in summer & warm in winter, & nothing else feels or moves like silk does. My pieces are designed with versatility in mind, & they are durable & easy care, with no dry cleaning or hand washing required. Akoya garments are designed for women who favour colour, elegance, exclusivity, and quality, over mass produced, trend oriented fashion.

I support the Positive Body Image Movement. I don't use professional models & I don't photo shop. I want my customers to see what my garments look like on real (beautiful) women, of different ages & sizes, where ever possible.

5% of my profits are donated to the Cherish Foundation, Australia, for much needed research into gynecological cancers.
