Angela Lewis Signature Collection Hits the Mark

Angela Lewis Signature Collection Hits the Mark

The Angela Lewis signature collection, shown for the first time last night at the Anna Bibby Gallery, Auckland has won immediate acclaim for its luxurious fabrics, clever and complex patterns and feminine appeal.

Angela Lewis showed both her experience and creativity in the collection which was inspired by Grecian themes and entitled, "Urban Goddess".

The launch is a first for Lewis who, while being very well known and respected in the industry has never put her own name on a collection. She says she found this challenging, but also empowering. "It allowed me to put my own passion, my own self into the garments," she said.

Retailers who flew in from around the country praised the collection, including an Australian distributor who came to Auckland especially for the viewing. "The buyers couldn't have been more encouraging," Lewis said. "I am absolutely over the moon with the response."

Her company, Lewis Design now employs 25 people and garments are sold throughout Australasia. It also runs retail outlets Saga, in Auckland’s Chancery and The Atrium.
