When it comes to style, summer is the perfect time to add a serious dose of boho quirkiness into the mix. With lightweight fabrics, stand-out prints, fresh denims and easy to wear cuts, the Spring/Summer 2016 collection from Minkpink has everything you need from dreamy dresses to sassy swimwear alike. Whether you’re taking a refreshing dip in the salty stuff by day or sipping a sunset beer on the shoreline, these are unique additions to your ‘drobe that’ll keep you looking style-savvy from day through to night.

Hailing from Australia, Minkpink is all about being fun, free and fashionable during those summer days and its all about strong stand-alone pieces as well as mixing it up with playful ensembles. Don’t miss the Minkpink Instagram takeover on Surfdome Women’s every Wednesday morning to get your weekly dose of fashion fun and some awesome styling inspo direct from Minkpink HQ and stay tuned for some seriously hot styles dropping soon on Surfdome.

What is your role at MINKPINK?
What are your favourite pieces from the range?
For me, I’d go with the Neighbourhood Cami Top and Fool Me Twice Stripe Denim Skirt (coming soon to Surfdome), which mind you look really cute together! You can easily dress it up or dress it down, that’s what I love about MINKPINK it’s often easy to go from day to night with the right accessories.

What are your favourite brands?
Bec & Bridge, Zimmerman, Zulu & Zephyr and MINKPINK is obviously a given. I love supporting Australian designers.
If you had to describe the female you design for, who is she?
She is someone who is independent, versatile and loves to try new trends!
How did you end up with such an awesome job designing womenswear for MINKPINK?
I applied for the job online and was then asked to design a mini collection to show what I could do. I actually moved interstate for the position, and TA-DA I’m here!
What’s your favourite thing about working for MINKPINK?
How creative I get to be every day. It’s such a fast paced environment but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
What are you wearing right now?
Floral high neck top, denim cut off shorts and black lace up sandals. Go to love an Australian Summer!

Where will we find you on the weekends?
Definitely at the beach! We’ve got some incredible beaches right on our doorstep, so when the sun is shining, that’s where you will find me.
The most exciting place you’ve been while on the job?
I only joined the MINKPINK team a few months ago but hopefully New York or London soon (fingers crossesd!). I have been to LA with work before and it was such an amazing experience, I’d definitely love to go back there.
Your ultimate summer playlist would be?
