Emerging talent Olivia Tarpey to display at CFW
Feb '13
Olivia Tarpey, one of London’s brightest emerging talents, will present her womenswear collection for the first time at Couture Fashion Week, one of New York Fashion Week's most prestigious events, on Friday, February 15, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. in the New Yorker Grand Ballroom.

Olivia has made her name as a designer of individual, yet elegant designs displaying her rare gift for embellishment and embroidery. She divides her time between homes in London and Cali, Colombia and accordingly, Olivia’s dresses bring a romantic fusion of English style and Latin romanticism to her couture. Intricate beading, handmade fabric flowers and hand painted designs, adorn a kaleidoscope of bright, beautiful garments in natural fabrics in Olivia’s newest, Haute Couture collection. 

Olivia specializes in couture, backless, corseted gowns in dazzling hues. Her range of silk blouses features hand painted designs, each one unique, and are perfect teamed with one of her bespoke, tailored jackets for a casual, yet glamorous look. The cocktail dresses bring together Olivia’s signature ruffles and ruching, whilst her deconstructed, summery tops make for a pretty, romantic look by day or night.

Olivia Tarpey was trained in bespoke tailoring and haute couture at London’s renowned Central St Martin’s (notable alumni include: Stella McCartney, Matthew Williamson, John Galliano, Clemments Ribero, Sarah Burton and Hussein Chalayan, among others) and the London College of Fashion. She followed this with training with Elizabeth Emmanuel (designer of Princess Diana’s wedding dress) before opening her own atelier in London.

Couture Fashion Week is a multi-day event showcasing couture and luxury fashion. It also includes exhibits of luxury brands and fine art as well as world-class entertainment and receptions.
