Perhaps one of the best things about spring being just on our doorstep is the arrival of all the fabulous new spring/summer fashion collections! While we often make a big deal about overseas brands’ latest collections there are some exciting things happening in our local fashion industry as well. Take for example, the latest collection from local designer Marique Yssel. Known for her contemporary style that blends concept and practicality, Marique Yssel has just released a bold new collection entitled, Awakening, that is sure to cause a stir.

With beautiful feminine touches in every piece, Yssel’s Awakening is influenced by the latest floral and garden-inspired print trends. The garments have a soft, comfortable feel to them and are inspired by wild flowers and the feeling of running through meadow at the start of spring, feeling refreshed.
