I first met Lauren, the designer behind Melbourne-based label “Her Pony” last year, when she had a stall at the market I used to co-run. I immediately fell in love with the vintage-inspired designs, in all their lace, tartan, peter pan collar glory. Her pieces were incredibly well-constructed, with delicate ribbon flourishes and gorgeous, flattering box pleating. They were the little girl party dresses I had always dreamed of – and finally, in adult sizes!

Lauren herself is strikingly gorgeous and is the epitome of everything her label represents. Her Pony has since expanded and grown at a rapid rate and has garnered a cult following of girls who like to keep it girly (we’re talking lots of florals, lace and pastel hues) and a little bit sexy (think low cut-out backs and flirtishly short skirts). The online store has officially just launched and you better get in quick, because everything is almost guaranteed to sell out in a heartbeat.

Oh, did I forget to mention the best bit? Every single Her Pony piece is lovingly handmade and only done in small runs – and I mean small, no more than 10 of each style. Lauren and her team of clever seamstresses even offer a “custom made” service where you can choose your favourite elements of the range and combine them into your dream outfit. I know.

My picks? I’m totally in love with the mod-style tartan dress and the matching shorts and jacket combo.

    It seems everything about this label is to-die-for! Loving the matching short and jacket combo as well, the college-inspired jacket, and those black dresses (so yeah, pretty much everything). Each piece has an amazing quality about it. Thanks for the share, I’ll definitely be checking out Her Pony!
