Dahlia Girl | Andrina Manon

Meet Andrina! The talented illustrator from sunny Australia! 

We love Andrina's Instagram, think dreamy photos, cute outfits and girly illustrations just like the Betty Magazine! We chatted to Andrina about her inspiration behind these cutest illustrations of our Dakota dress! x

Your name is…
Andrina Manon

And you’re from…
The sunshine filled North Shore of Sydney, Australia!



Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am currently studying design at university, focusing on textiles and graphics. In my spare time I love to work on illustration projects and collaborate with other artists and designers.

How would you describe your personal style?  
I think my style is a bit of everything. I often mix vintage inspired pieces with modern basics. I absolutely love floral or paisley dresses, anything with a big collar, lace, Chelsea boots, striped tee shirts, high waisted jeans and midi skirts!

What inspired your illustration for our Dakota dress?   
Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, the flowers blooming in my street and day dreaming about riding my bicycle in the Summer.

Any tricks for finding inspiration?
Watching a film or reading book usually inspires me! It’s so much fun to immerse yourself in a completely different place/era. Otherwise going to my favourite coffee shop and watching the world outside or taking a walk in the Botanical Gardens usually does the trick.

My favourite Dahlia piece from the collection is…
I have two pieces that are my equal favourites… the Ingrid Sailor Collar top in cream and the Dakota Daisy dress!
