Lyla Askew is designed & made for you!                      Every garment is crafted with love in our studio in Wellington, New Zealand.  Shipping worldwide. Wholesale enquiries welcome.   

Lyla Askew designs are classic pieces made to withstand the test of time. The label is the namesake of the Great-Grandmother of designer Ischtar Toomey. Inspired by the elegant styles of her great-grand mother's day, our motto is to "design for five generations". We love bringing clothes to life that would make both our great-grandmothers and great-grand daughters proud to wear!

We're thinking about future generations, so naturally sustainability is a key brand ethos. Our quality fabrics are sourced locally, as well as from ethically certified international suppliers of organic, ethical & eco-friendly fabrics. Our garments are made in small runs or cut to order, so if you have unique fit requirements just let us know and we can tailor to your measurements free of charge. Cutting to order also allows us to reduce wasteful overproduction and to recycle our off-cut fabrics, which are used for things like binding, frills, collars and more! We strive for a transparent supply chain and welcome any questions you may have about the origins of your garment.

You might be thinking "New Zealand is a long way from the rest of the world" but don't fret - We ship internationally with estimated delivery times ranging from just 3 to 15 days. You can see the full list of countries & estimated shipping duration in our policies section.
