Linda has a vision for a better world and, through her skills, passion and interest in vintage fashion, hopes to develop this through the social enterprise, Lydra. She is inspired by Japanese great Miyake, the great Japanese designer, who was the first person to combine Western and Japanese styles, resulting in his revolutionary “Pleats Please” range.
Linda has a background in Advertising, but sought a new direction in her aim for more altruistic endeavours. She completed a course in Applied Fashion Design and Technology at RMIT, where she was named National Student Entrepreneur for Australia in 2010 by the GSEA.
She envisions that, through creating Lydra that is made in Melbourne, she will be able to better educate and create awareness about the relevance of sustainable living. Linda Vydra is a name to follow in what will undoubtedly be an exciting future.
