Like the look of my stuff but still unsure? Why not let my gorgeous customers convince you? ;)
I have bought many items from Gwyllem, for over seven years. Each item I have is still looking great and has no need for repair even though I do not look after the items of clothing as I should. Over the years I have had many compliments about the originality and great fit of the clothes I have purchased.
I learnt the hard way that cheaper items just don't last the distance in quality. Gwyllem's attention to detail, from the artistic (one of a kind) fabric prints to the brown paper and vibrant ribbon packaging, typifies my experience of purchasing this brand.
The most impressive element of this brand is that I can be assured that they are not made exploiting labour or the environment. They are designed and made with love in Australia with a fair trade ideals and sustainable environmental practises.'

I love Gwyllem clothes, they are feminine without being too girly, flattering and of great quality and Gwyllem clothes now make up about half my wardrobe. It is easy to support locally made when the products are awesome and made to order.
I feel a bit like I'm in a special club - every now and again I spot somebody wearing Gwyllem, or they spot me, and it is an instant connection. Not to mention a great look on lots of different shapes and sizes!

I recently bought a Gwyllem panel dress. I have to to say it the best dress I have ever bought . Not only is it a gorgeous design but it is extremely flattering and comfy. I was over the moon with my purchase. Since then I have been addicted to Gwyllem clothes. Great quality, fast delivery and an absolute pleasure to deal with. The only problem for me is there are so many great designs to choose from I have trouble making my mind up!! You won't be disappointed.

I bought my first Gwyllem Window pane top at the Woodford Folk Festival in 2009 and have been completely devoted to the label ever since! I now have more than 15 Gwyllem products across a variety of styles and I love them all but the Window pane tops are still my favourites. They are so versatile - I wear them to work, out for dinner, on weekends and they are always the first thing I pack when travelling.
Gwyllem tops mix so well with the rest of my wardrobe - they look great with a work suit, under a cardigan, with long beads, a pendant or even a scarf. The quality is incredible! I still wear my original Woodford top and it looks just as good today as it did when I first got it. Nobody would guess that it is over 6 years old and has been through the washing machine at least 65 times.
I love the quality, I love the fabrics and I love the easy maintenance but probably the most compelling thing drawing me back to Gwyllem Window pane tops each time is the style - they are so wonderfully flattering!! Who can resist that?!!

I have known Clare from Gwyllem for a couple of years and purchased many items of clothing through her website. I have found Gwyllem clothing to be quite unique, extremely practical, easy to wear, well made, flattering and beautiful; so I keep coming back for more.
On several occasions Clare has gone to considerable effort to customise an order for me, by adjusting the size or tweaking the style or using different fabrics. I have found Clare very easy to deal with, she is always happy to answer questions about her products and is able to communicate specific details very clearly so there is never any doubt about the item in question.
Every purchase I have made has gone smoothly and arrived quickly. I am very happy to recommend Gwyllem clothing and will definitely be making many more purchases myself.

I have been a customer of Gwyllem for some years now and am extremely happy to recommend the business and products. The friendly & professional service complements the amazingly beautiful clothes. Gwyllem has a special talent of creating stylish, unique and well made outfits.
There has never been a request which was too hard - an extra centimetre off the pants here and an added cm to the top was accomplished with friendliness & no fuss.
Receiving a Gwyllem package in the mail is like Christmas has come early. The clothes are beautifully packaged and arrive in the time frame specified.
The only problem I currently have is that anytime I catch up with certain friends or family we need to check who is wearing what Gwyllem piece so we don't look like twins (we are all huge Gwyllem fans).

I've been a customer of Gwyllem for many years now. Over the years I've purchased at Bluesfest, at various other festivals and markets and now online. I still wear my first ever purchase - a gorgeous window pane top - it's as good as new. The quality & style of Gwyllem clothing means that I never get sick of the pieces - which is great, seeing as they wash beautifully & are so well made that they last forever!
Now that I order online I'm happy to say that it's even easier to choose and buy. The sizes are true and Clare makes every effort to ensue that her customers are satisfied. A variation of centimetres here and there is never too much trouble and the clothing arrives in the mail promptly. I've never had any delays. It's magical to receive new clothes in a beautifully wrapped package from Gwyllem.
Gwyllem is the brand for me. I love it that I know the person who has designed and created my clothes - ethically made with passion by a woman committed to delivering quality. What more could you want!

Gwyllem! Great, unique products that are packaged, presented and posted with style and flair. I have been buying clothes from Gwyllem for over 5 years (at West End markets which is even longer ago) and have always been treated professionally and personably. Clare is open to suggestions, prompt with her creations and just extremely talented. Love her stuff!
- Alex from West End, QLD and now Chicago
Gwyllem clothes are beautifully designed, feel great to wear, and are wonderfully flattering. I particularly like the way the fabric continues to look good for years, and is stretchy and doesn't crush easily. When I travel for work I always take lots of Gwyllem clothes, because they are ready to wear straight out of the suitcase. It makes me happy to support a talented Australian designer, especially when the clothing is ethically made. And Clare is always such a pleasure to deal with!

I came across Gwyllem two years ago when I started a new job. I needed some new clothes and wanted something in natural fibres that complemented my curves. I contacted Clare to talk sizes and styles and I started out with a couple of pairs of sidewalk pants and button tops.
I got so many compliments about my clothes that I bought some dresses as well and now half of my wardrobe is Gwyllem :)
Clare has been incredibly helpful over the past two years. She's made adjustments to clothes (smaller sizing on the top of dresses and larger on the bottom), happily swapped sizes without drama, and made pieces to order (different coloured buttons and bands on pants).
The fabrics have worn well, and the cuts and designs are comfortable and elegant. Two years later, I still take a great deal of pleasure from wearing my clothes. I continue to add classic pieces of Gwyllem magic to my wardrobe and always look forward to Clare's new designs.
