If you put me in this skirt I would levitate. I swear.

More midweek stimulation, Australian-born designer Louise Markey launched her fashion house, LF Markey, in 2008 and has since garnered a reputation for her playful signature style.

A graduate of Central Saint Martins, Louise also has stint as a designer at Burberry under her belt, as well as a collaboration with digital dynamos, ASOS.

Her trademark style is minimalism mixed with bold colours and shapes; her glossy, voluminous skirts, an iconic example. They’re like an avant garde play on a doll’s dress or a Disney ballgown. Central Saint Martins, she says, was like a finishing school for designers, something that has had a marked influence on her focus on understated luxury and high-quality manufacturing.

When asked what kind of a woman she sees wearing her designs, Markey chose non-conformist queens, Tilda Swinton and Bjork.

And that just makes me like her a whole lot more.
