Costume Inspiration

Costume, Inspiration

Ever since I can remember I loved fashion and textiles. Dress making and tailoring originated on the Estonian side of my family and it made me appreciate the art of sewing and intricate fabrications.

I dreamed of becoming a fashion designer when I watched the House of Eliott growing up, I was inspired by how the costumes captured the 1920’s era so well in the television series.

Profile

Welcome to my fashion and textile design blog, OM Label. 

This blog is about all pursuits related to the field of fashion and textiles.

After studying an arts degree with a major in English I went onto study a Fine Art degree in painting, drawing, design and film. In 2006 I went to Glasgow and learnt the art of silkscreen printmaking and worked on a feature film. I designed my first silkscreen prints in 2007/08 in my studio in Melbourne under the label Orchis Morio, specialising in printed textiles on organic cotton base cloths, retailing the designs by the metre, they were featured on homewares and accessories products.

In 2011 I rebranded Orchis Morio to OM Label and began my fashion label designing garments from textiles digitally printed onto silk. I moved to London to work in fashion for a couple of years. In 2014/15 I started retailing textiles through Patternbank and designed for Target. Recently I completed a Diploma in Applied Fashion Design and Merchandising (Design and Product Development). I design all textiles and fashion design products under the name OM Label.
