You all know how much I love my leather. At times it can be hard to find leather that fits your body right. This was the problem that Micha Dyball encounted so she went on the hunt for the perfect leather skirt which then resulted in the birth of her own label Eska Alikai. I am sure you have seen the buzz around this label on various fashion blogs and instagram, I am obsessed! Her pieces are classic and structured with clean lines. I chat to Micha about her love for leather, her personal style and the challenges she has faced since launching her own label. Here is a sneak peak from Eska Alikai’s recent Spring Summer 13 campaign shoot ‘el lagarto’ (in-stores in September) cant wait to see more soon.

 I love your fashion story, you were on the hunt for the perfect leather skirt so you designed your own and that is how your label was born. Did you think your label would take off so quickly? I didn’t think it would, no. I had an open mind and no expectations. I also accepted the opportunities which have been offered to me.

It’s hard to believe your amazing label was born in 2012 as your pieces are so refined. What challenges have you faced since started your own label? Quality control is something which is really important to me so going through a few teething problems to get to better quality and a long lasting garment has been a great challenge | experience.

Your leathers are one of a kind, what is it about leather that appeals to you? Leather changes over time with wear. It softens, creases, molds and each leather piece has different imperfections that make them special and unique.

Your new campaign shots are making my heart skip a beat, so breathtaking! I can’t wait to see more. Tell me about this upcoming collection? I’m looking forward to launching this collection as it has more depth and a broader range. I’m also launching my debut collection of jersey, exclusively on eskaalikai.com.au The range consists of 2 styles, a tee and singlet in black, white and stripes which is made from tencel that is derived from bamboo.

 How would you describe your personal style and wardrobe? My brand does reflect my own style in ways – I have just designed and shot AW14 which will be the ultimate reflection of my style – relaxed, comfortable, refined, simplistic, mixed with cotton voile jersey and denim.

 Favourite city or place in the world? London | Hoi An

 Three key pieces to buy coming into Summer? The Aru Dress, Maluku Skirt and the Classic Tee are going to be my staple.

 The ESKA ALIKAI future looks like? Evolved.
