What defines luxury fashion has always been a topic of debate. Is it the brand name? The price tag? The quality? The craftsmanship?
All these factors undoubtedly play a role, but in my experience, there is one thing all luxurious fashion pieces have in common, whether they are created by a world-renowned fashion house or a small artisan atelier: they are made out of high quality fabrics that feel wonderful against the skin, drape just so and stand the test of time.
If you love clothes that are made of beautiful fabrics, are refreshingly modern and fashionable but also ultra feminine and carry a classic aesthetic, you need to check out Lela Silk on Etsy.
Founded and run by young and talented Hanoi-based designer Tu Anh Nguyen, in the two years since its opening Lela Silk has become the go-to store for everyday style icons to source their newest looks, as well as brides and bridal parties who hit it up for showstopping gowns, robes and slips. Their designs are not just a beautiful collection of pieces to brighten your days and special occasions, they are also perfect looks for photo shoots, because they bring out your sensual, feminine side and make you feel like the goddess you are. Their hundreds of stellar reviews on Etsy do not lie.
