Olivia Rose The Label is a small independent British slow fashion label, founded in 2017 by me, Olivia Rose Havelock.
Olivia Rose The Label is a one woman show.
Every item is completely designed and handmade to order by me in my studio in Edinburgh, UK.
My making process includes the designing, fabric sourcing, cutting out, sewing, stitching, steaming, labelling, packaging and sending of each individual item, along with its own personal hand written note.
As well as that I manage all the ‘businessy’ things too.
All items are handmade in very limited quantities meaning each piece is truly unique and made especially for you, most pieces take around 4 – 6 hours to be made.
I can only accept around 14 orders per week, sewing takes a lot of time and patience, I like to keep things slow and special. No items are ever pre-made and I don’t hold any stock. I do in order to have as little wasted fabrics and resources as possible, as well as being able to offer made-to-measure and custom sizing for my customers from scratch.
I source and purchase all my fabrics locally in the UK in small quantities.
Because I hand make every item to order, I offer custom sizing for all – any shape / size / height at no extra cost, every body is welcome here at Olivia Rose The Label.
My Grandma was my biggest inspiration growing up and is the biggest inspiration for starting this label. She was the person to first introduce me to the sewing machine at around age 6 and I have been in love with making clothes and dressing up ever since.
Some of the very first designs I had ever sewn for my brand were using her sewing machine that she had left for me.
The Beryl Dress is lovingly named after her <3
