Inspired by the sea & sky, each Aila Blue collection empowers women to feel in harmony with the world and oneself - spiritually free and physically beautiful.
With two global offices - Australia & Honolulu. All Aila Blue collections are designed in Australia by our founder & creative director, Mai Dalle Cort. She has homes in both the Gold Coast of Australia & Honolulu, Hawaii. Living an international bi-coastal life allows Mai fresh perspective on global trends and she incorporates style references from both cultures. From the minimal earthy beach style of the Hawaiian beaches to the elevated style icons of Australia.
Mai grew up between homes in Los Angeles, Hawaii & Japan. Influenced by her global upbringing, Mai began her design career in 2009 after seeing a gap in the market for women desiring minimal luxury at affordable prices. In 1996 Mai first traveled to the island of Bali where she fell in love with its local artisans & immersive culture. After finishing her degree at the University of Southern California, Mai moved to Bali to begin Aila Blue.
Celebrating 10 years of original prints and unique silhouettes for women around the world, Mai continues to challenge the status quo and create timeless designs that evoke a feeling of emotion inspired by the sea and sky, body and mind, self and nature. Today Mai lives between her homes in Palm Beach, Australia and Honolulu, Hawaii with her husband, retired professional rugby league player Dalla & wildly spirited 5 year old son Fox.
