Our upcoming Christmas Market brings together all the brands and quirky pieces that we love in preparation for the holidays.
Are you dreading the Christmas shopping? Not at Le Louvre! As part of our Holiday series, we are thrilled to announce that Arabella Ramsay’s gorgeous Dougal brand will be available exclusively at Le Louvre from 20th November.
Arabella Ramsay has been surrounded by textiles, fashion and art for as long as she can remember.
Her earliest memories are sewing and creating pieces with her mum, who has been a major influence in her life. Arabella said goodbye to her signature fashion brand a few years ago and moved to Jan Juc on the South Coast of Victoria to focus on her young family and enjoy a slower-paced lifestyle.
Today she designs for her lifestyle brand Dougal, in collaboration with her father Dougal Ramsay, an illustrator and author, who illustrates all the wonderful Aussie-inspired prints for the collection.
Dougal creates their garments both within Australia and also in China. Their Australian manufacturer works out of a small shed near Ballarat and has been lovingly crafting Dougal garments for over 10 years. Where possible, they choose to manufacture locally to support grass roots.
Dougal’s Chinese partner was specially chosen for their quality and extremely ethical working conditions. Their proficiency, attention to detail and fast turn around time makes them an absolute dream to collaborate with.
Dougal’s garments feature premium silks and luxurious 100% cotton jersey that are designed to last. On all fabrications they utilise extremely high quality digital printing techniques which simply get better with every wash. Where possible, Dougal also loves to use gorgeous organic Japanese cottons from a supplier they have known for many years.
Le Louvre’s Christmas Market will launch from Tuesday 20th November and feature a myriad of quirky things great and small for all your Christmas and Holiday needs. Look forward to seeing you in store!
