LISMORE fashion designer, Monique Hope, will launch her debut collection of her clothing line Chip the Teacup tonight.

"Chip the Teacup is for girls who have style of a different breed - they are unique and brave - like unicorns!" Ms Hope said.

Ms Hope's clothing launch has been made possible after she succeeded in crowdfunding $2500 through website Pozible.

"The generosity of so many friends and family and people I have never met was such an inspiration," she said.

"Knowing these people are willing to give me their hard earned funds has made me even more driven to share Chip the Teacup with the world.

"The debut Dirty Pop Fantasy is my focus from a selling point at the moment but I am busily preparing for a Swim Capsule called Glitter of Seas which will be available in late November/early December."

"Also I am imagining and creating another full collection of dreamy designs for next Fall/Winter."

Chip the Teacup launches at Wonderlane Emporium in the Star Court Arcade, Lismore from 5pm. Cost $5.
