Design director Lindsey Brown is the inspirational talent behind the Lindsey Brown luxury resort wear brand. Inspired by her own wanderlust for travel and time spent working overseas Lindsey Brown’s vision is to create beautifully cut resort wear in beautiful fabrics. Her resort wear collection is the perfect mix of dreamy silk beach dresses and effortless designer kaftan tops to wear day or night. Lindsey’s intention is to create timeless favourites that ladies wear on every holiday. Every piece is designed from start to finish by design director Lindsey Brown from the initial concept, to the fabric choice and decoration. Through her background in fashion and textiles and commercial expertise in the swimwear industry Lindsey is very knowledgeable in the beading and dying processes which are used to create each collection, so every print and every designer kaftan is totally unique to the Lindsey Brown Luxury resort wear brand.
DESIGNER BIO | Lindsey’s career started in the fashion and swimwear industry with her first screen printing business at 16, designing, printing and selling t-shirts and homewear to stores. She went on to study printed textiles and fashion design at university and furthered her design training with a Master Degree in Design and Manufacture. In her early 20’s, Lindsey worked as a swimwear designer in Barcelona where she joined an international swimwear design team for six months. On returning to the UK, she proceeded to have a successful career in the UK lingerie and swimwear industry, setting up a beachwear agency for Italian beachwear brands.
Realising there was a gap in the UK market for great fitting pretty beach kaftans and a complete gap in the UK market for luxury resort wear, Lindsey returned to her design roots and with the success of her first silk kaftan top the Manhattan, Lindsey decided to launch Lindsey Brown Luxury resort wear. "By adding my name to the collection I wanted to convey that I design every aspect of the collection, from the initial patterns to the threads, the type of silk fabric we use and even the size of the beads, I choose it all.
Some of the silks kaftan tops and silk beach dresses can take six days to make from start to finish, as I prefer to hand dye fabrics, and the finishing touches such as the beaded necklines are also hand sewn, ensuring the best finish to these beautiful pieces. Designing fabulous resort wear is my dream and helping ladies choose the best dress or designer kaftan for their holiday is my passion” Lindsey x
