Nellie’s Garden Party Collection
Nellies Garden Party is Andrea Lucy’s very first collection, dedicated to Australian Opera legend, Dame Nellie Melba.
Whilst strolling through historic Coombe Estate (located in the picturesque Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia) I was struck with inspiration by the array of beautiful flowers in Nellie’s garden. The gentle pastel hues and luscious green foliage made such an impression that an entire collection of clothing was designed in one afternoon!
Dame Nellie Melba’s Estate is impressive but nothing is more grand than the legend of the woman herself. Bold, intelligent and innovative, she paved the way for women’s rights in Australia whilst winning over the hearts of thousands (including the royal family) with her natural singing talent.
I designed this collection for Plus Size women to empower themselves by embodying a bit of Dame Nellie Melba’s strength and sass (she was a bit of a character, she was an Opera singer for crying out loud) If Nellie could achieve all that she did almost 100 years ago, us ladies of today can do anything!
