Lisa Hall is the free-spirited couturier behind the womenswear label, Madame Hall, creating bespoke, original attire for urban bohemians. Unlike other western fashion designers before her, Lisa was not content to simply fly home with a suitcase full of Indian fabrics, and instead, traded life in Sydney for a remote Indian town at the age of 48.
By immersing herself in what truly inspires her — art, traditional crafts, and colour as a reflection of everyday life, Madame Hall has flourished, attracting a dedicated community of followers and customers from around the world, and even gracing the pages of Australian Vogue on one Cate Blanchett.
