Our Story

Effortlessly, functional clothing ...

Introducing ILKA an Australian womenswear label built on transparency, quality and high end craftsmanship. The duo behind ILKA - Erin Taylor and Kate Wilks, met while studying fashion design in Perth, Western Australia. These two go getters are dedicated to their cause, by not only designing their pieces but also get their hands dirty (so to speak) by sewing, pattern making and putting the finishing touches on select styles in their Mount Hawthorn studio, while the bigger orders are manufactured within their hometown of Perth. 

Having had 10 years experience within the rag trade, Erin and Kate have learnt that you can't create a label without a community of support behind you, so with this knowledge and their determination to making it happen, they used their experience within the retail industry and opened up a retail space in the heart of Mount Hawthorn. The special part of this story is that not only does their store house the ILKA label but it is also the home to 20 local WA brands.
