"Whilst on a recent holiday in Vanuatu I had the pleasure of meeting Linda in her exquisite Linen Shop. I was so impressed with her garments, the wonderful designs, fantastic colours and quality of linen was top shelf. Each garment was perfectly stitched and featured great attention to detail. Her fashion knowledge is first class and she knows just what will suit, but also listens to what you want. I absolutely love my pants and tops and when I returned to Australia I ordered several more. I am very happy to personally recommend any of Linda Mackay Designs….a MUST for your wardrobe." 

Graham Daniels . Sydney - Australia . Port Vila - Vanuatu

"You never get a second chance on a first impression, and although clothes may not make the man, they sure do introduce him. I tend to do my clothes shopping during downtime on international business trips, in locations where style is valued. Linda, your linen shirts are in a class of their own and up there with the best I have found anywhere in the world!"

                        Jake Daniels . Sydney - NSW - Australia

The service was very personal and the shirts have gone with me all over the world. I never leave home without them."

Her advice on fabric choice was very helpful and her range of colours gave me good choices. The quality of sewing is top notch and the end product was value for money. I would recommend Linda without hesitation."

"If you want a quality product that makes you feel special every time you put it on, this is the one.  Attention to detail, beautiful fabric, and personal service second to none, not to mention the gorgeous colours.

Melanie Hughes . Sydney - NSW - Australia

“The pure linen products are superbly styled and finely made with high quality linen. I purchased a white dress and top over two years ago now, both garments remain in great condition; they wash easily, are easy to wear, and will never go out of style! I look forward to adding to my pure linen collection in the future."

Simone Hughes . Port Vila - Vanuatu

"I have purchased seven of Linda Mackay Designs and just love them!  I have worn and washed them multiple times and the colours are still brilliant.  Linda, your garments are quality and professionally made - no short cuts - and I just love the way you package them.  By the way, thank you for going out of your way to resize the last garment in record time so I could take it with me on my holiday.  I recommend all and sundry to buy from you - so if you ever need me to write a true testimonial of your work and great service please let me know.  I will be back!"

"I really enjoy wearing Linda Mackay Designs. The linen is of a wonderful quality, crushes less than any other linen that I have worn, the designs simple and very comfortable and suit most occasions and I find that they always fit well and I love the range of colours. Good luck with this venture. I am looking forward to my next purchase which will be pants with the fitted waist band."

“...very happy with Linda's workmanship and have purchased ready made ladies wear for my nieces and daughters and also ordered for myself, "made to measure" hand finished linen shirts which are crisp, stylish and comfortable...Linda is very friendly and soft-spoken with a personal touch, very sensible and practical approach on fabric choice and gave great tips on how to wash and press the shirts to keep for a long time...”

Cheryl Malloy . Ballina - NSW - Australia . Honiara - Solomon Islands

"I have purchased five gorgeous linen items from Linda Mackay Designs boutique in Port Vila Vanuatu. Linda went to extraordinary lengths to ensure my shopping experience was first class and she made sure I had the right size and style to suit me. We talked about fabric and fit; how to wash and care for my clothes and shared our views on whether linen needs ironing at all – I hate ironing and love my linen unironed! Linda understands fashion and good design and I'm always happy when people comment on how nice her pieces look on me.”

Cathy Miller . Queenstown - New Zealand . Melbourne - VIC - Australia

"What a wonderful range of clothes Linda has. I bought a classic navy dress which goes everywhere. The best thing about it is I can literally throw it in my overnight bag and come out looking like a million dollars ! I always get comments when I wear it. The detailing and quality is superb".

                      Madelyn O'Malley-Jones . Tweed Heads - NSW - Australia

I found Linda to be very approachable and keen to ensure all went well. Further, the adjustments where promptly made and delivered."


Elaine Sanson . Auckland - New Zealand

"I have now purchased seven items from Linda. I loved my three quarter Capri pants, they were so comfortable and well-made I decided to buy a full length pair as well. While purchasing these, I also spotted a lovely top in Terracotta which I also purchased and have worn heaps through the NZ summer. The colour hasn't faded at all, it is still as new as the day I bought it. The service is brilliant and all purchases are beautifully wrapped to make you feel very special."

Val Smith . Gold Coast - QLD - Australia . Melbourne - VIC - Australia

“I love your linen. I think the finish on your garments is exceptional, and the linen that you use is extremely good quality. It washes well and is long wearing."

Michelle Winrow . Byron Bay - NSW - Australia

 "I highly recommend Linda Mackay Design, I have had the delightful experience of purchasing two classic stunning linen dresses from Linda. The whole purchasing and alterations process was so professional. I have never encountered such a seamstress that takes such immense pride in her work, consequently the quality and the attention to detail in my dresses are outstanding. Every time I wear either dress I constantly get asked where they are from. I'm looking forward to adding more dresses to my wardrobe!!"


Hi Linda
Thanks you so much for your offer -you are really generous.  I would like the coffee coloured ones in lieu of the black. As we do not have a post office box our local address is probably best. Safe travelling and thank you once again.


Thank you so very much Linda. My very best wishes to you. Christine


Hello Linda,
Thank you.  I'm looking forward to receiving the shorts. 
I wish you success in Bali. 



Hi Linda,
Thanks for the email. I was booked on Virgin which did leave a few hours late.
Love my new shirt. It was lovely chatting to your mum. Next visit I will get the white pants.
Sorry to miss you.


Hi Linda
The clothes on your Website are stunning. Glad you might be around when we are there. We arrive on 4th September so will make contact when we arrive.
Cheers. Karen


Hello Linda
My shirt has arrived and I love it! I took it into town to the shop I was telling you about and she loved it also, the fabric and the quality. She will be very interested to stock if you decide to wholesale. I do need to loose a little in the bust for it to be perfect on me, so will wait until I come over again to Vanuatu to try some other colours. Thank you so much for the beautiful packaging and your client service which is above and beyond. Wish I was over there now. Warm Regards.


Hi Linda. Been to post office and had a wonderful surprise my beautiful dress has arrived can't wait to wear bring on summer thanks so much have a great week . Regards Lynne


Hi Linda
Just a quick email to say how nice it was to find your beautiful shop and to be able to purchase your fabulous clothes.  I am absolutely thrilled with my pants and would like to ask if you still have any size 16 left in the drawstring lounge and or Capri styles.  The Italian linen is great so if you still have the buy 2 get one free I would like to order size 16, can you advise what colours you have left. I would like black, aqua and maybe red if possible or the white in the Capri style. Kind regards


Hello Linda,
Was lovely to meet you on my recent holiday in Vanuatu.
Linen is one of my favourite fabrics but the quality of the material and workmanship in your clothing is just beautiful. I bought shorts and a beautiful shirt which I am looking forward to wearing ( its Winter in Melbourne). I think I will have a long an ongoing shopping future on-line.
