A FABULOUSLY RIOTOUS VINTAGE INSPIRED PLAYTIME

Whilst, Olga de Polga is UK label, our designer Olga Stone is a Melbourne girl, who grew up on the sun-drenched beaches of Australia.

“My collection with its bright colours and quirky styles draws a lot from my childhood here”, she says. “Which is in total contrast to the sophisticated neutral hues that Melbourne fashion is known for. Go figure!”

While colour is certainly the hallmark of her eclectic range, it is the fabrics that are her real signature. Since graduating with a degree in textiles, she concentrates principally on natural fabrics – wools, silks and cottons. A lot are her own prints, others reproduced from vintage fabrics in different colourways and some even from vintage storybook illustrations.

“THAT’S SWEET!”
One general impression of Olga de Polga is an almost heady mix of two parts childish glee and one part sensory overload. The comment, “There’s sooo much to look at!” is usually followed by “That’s so gorgeous!.” We don’t make the rules but the vibe there is closer to that of a lolly shop than a clothing label.
