She has also made a line of leather slides and bags that pair perfectly with her clothing range.

"I have chosen to use the softest rayon as they are perfect for our climate," Ms Giles said.

The label's price point, ranging from $89 to $159, makes it affordable for most fashion lovers.

"Isla Bay grew from my love of quality fashion. I have always wanted to create a line of styles with fabrics I knew would be beautiful to wear in our climate," she said.

"Working in retail and among so many great clothing brands, I began to grow a taste for the industry and was given the opportunity to work with a designer to guide me along the way."

Ms Giles has been working on the styles for more than 12 months and after endless samples, is excited to finally see her dream become a reality.

"The name Isla Bay came from my love for the ocean, white sandy beaches and turquoise water - a place where we can walk barefoot and wearing a beautiful dress and feel confident and free," she said. Ms Giles also operates boutique Haight and Ashbury in Earls Court arcade.
