Now in her seventh season, Olivia Rubin launched her first womenswear line after graduating from the world-renowned Central Saint Martins College in London. Her final collection was chosen for the prestigious press show and won immediate attention from the press who cited her printed designs as one of the ‘standout collections.’
Rubin carried out placements in any available holidays with couturier Jacques Azagury, Tristan Webber and Jade Jagger. Her persistance and enthuiasm scored her work with Alexander McQueen and John Galliano in Paris, where she assisted with Galliano’s main line collections, designing prints that were chosen for his womenswear SS06 lines.
Rubin’s SS07 and SS08 collections were short listed for the Fashion Fringe Award Scheme and gave her the platform to exhibit her designs at London Fashion Week. AW09 saw Rubin’s first highly anticapiated catwalk show in association with On/Off at the Science Museum.
The label has become known for Rubin’s signature graphic prints, (including therenowned brick print) on a variety of simple yet feminine silhouettes. It is heroutstanding prints that have lead to numerous collaborations including ASOS,Oli.co.uk, with this year adding Very.co.uk and Dune to the list who want a piece ofRubin’s prints.
Rubin is building an industry presence featuring regularly in leading British fashion titles including Grazia, Instyle, the Times and Vogue and continues to dress a list of celebrity fans including Cheryl Cole, Fearne Cotton and Jaime Winstone.
