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.
more about olivia
Olivia Rose Wright was inspired by her grandmother, who supported her children’s education by designing dresses and eventually opening her own dress store in San Francisco in the 1950’s. When it came time to conceptualize her own legacy, Olivia looked at a cause that mattered
to her most – education for girls and gender inequality. Through her research, Olivia discovered the troubling reality that the lack of a
school uniform was keeping many girls out of school. To combat this issue, she started the movement and brand Rallier. Utilizing her
experience at luxury labels, such as Prada and Cartier, Olivia conceptualized Rallier to elevate the notion of social responsibility
in fashion by incorporating a giving strategy into the design and overall visual language of the brand.
Rallier is a womenswear label inspired by modern uniform dressing. Designed and made in New York, Rallier reinterprets the classics — think A-line cuts and oxford shirting — in carefully sourced fabrics from around the world. This is foundational dressing: where personal singularity meets signature style.
Rallier believes in uniform dressing, for all. For every piece sold, school uniforms are sourced from regions plagued by gender inequality and given to local schoolgirls.
