MEET | OLIVIA ROSE WRIGHT
Featured 5.29-6.4.17 | Fashion is in Olivia Rose Wright's blood. Her grandmother supported her children's education by selling her dresses in the 1950s, and after stints at Prada and Cartier, Olivia felt it was time to conceptualize her own legacy, looking at the causes that mattered to her most and how she could really make a difference. And so she birthed Rallier, her womenswear label inspired by modern uniform dressing and which elevates the notion of social responsibility in fashion, donating a portion of every purchase to Shining Hope for Communities to support the provision of school uniform dresses to girls in Kenya. So basically, Olivia's awesome. As are her selects. Welcome to Olivia's week.
Rallier is inspired by modern uniform dressing - the pieces explore the tension between uniformity and individuality by mixing the heritage of archetypal dress codes with a feminine spirit of ease. For every piece sold, school uniforms are sourced from regions plagued by gender inequality and given to local schoolgirls. Also, everything is made entirely in New York.Read More
