Through the last trimester, I had created a brand, created a 24 garment range, brought to life two looks and had a photoshoot and video shoot.
Here is a little bit about my brand;
Olivia is an Australian designer brand that focuses on producing ready to wear garments. The designer womenswear brand creates elevated daywear and extension of special occasion. This Spring Summer 2023 collection focuses on trend driven inspiration and exploration of the forecast to create the final garments.
Using the Womenswear Forecast S/S 23: Full Spectrum, I was able to explore the idea of combining the physical world with the digital world (phygital). Offbeat designs, bold patterns and futuristic fabrics apply to everything from vibrant resortwear to sculptural partywear.
The S/S ‘23 collection created by Olivia for the brand olivia, EXCARPSUS explores the theme of the oceans motion. Excarpsus is the old latin word for ‘escaping the present time’. From this I was able to use this definition to combine it with escaping the digital world and exploring the physical world. This collection eplores the natural world and creates a natural and organic feeling about getting dressed up and going out again after the covid lockdowns.
