Celebrating Lily & Esther

As Clyde fashion boutique Lily & Esther celebrates its fifth anniversary, owner Anna McRichie has added a new high-profile label to the store.

“When I started out five years ago it was with a clear goal to exclusively stock high-end New Zealand designer fashion, handbags and shoes. We had six labels initially and since then a few more have been added but the intention remains the same to champion New Zealand design.”

“I personally love to wear New Zealand fashion and as my loyal local customers know many pieces make it home to my own wardrobe which is fun because I get to wear my favourite designers to work every day.”

The recent addition of New Zealand designer Kate Sylvester is a coup for the store.

“It was time to satisfy our customers love of Kate Sylvester by introducing a selection of her modern, feminine clothes. She is one of our most requested designers so when the opportunity arose this year to stock her clothing I jumped at the chance.”

Lily & Esther have a hand-picked selection of dresses and separates from the Sylvester and Kate Sylvester spring collections.

“The sophisticated Thea dress is made in New Zealand featuring capped sleeves and a drawstring waist perfect for a party, celebration or summer frock,” says Anna. “The Dimity top is pretty in floral print and the Chequered skirt is a midi-length style in a subtlety chequered fabric. The Lily t-shirt is one of those stylish easy wear solutions to throw on with pants, denim or shorts.”
