After studying Fashion and Textile Management at Leeds University, Olivia von Halle worked for The Future Laboratory in London as a trend forecaster for clients, including Louis Vuitton, Gucci Group and Lamborghini. In 2008, she moved to Shanghai, China where she continued working as a trend forecaster for various agencies and as a luxury brand consultant. Coming home in the evenings from social gatherings, Olivia would long to ditch her sky-high heels and constricting outfits for something more comfortable, yet glamorous enough to enjoy a gin and tonic in before sliding off to bed.
Inspired by the lounging pajamas worn by Coco Chanel and her contemporaries in the 1920s, von Halle began working with her tailor to design the perfect pair of pajamas. She then returned to London to launch the Olivia von Halle British luxury nightwear brand. Her first collection debuted at London Fashion Week in September of 2011, and von Halle's directional take on traditional nightwear made her collection an instant fashion editor favorite, and a regular fixture in top global publications including Vanity Fair, Harper's Bazaar and Vogue.
Focusing on beautifully cut silk pajamas in stunning prints, Olivia von Halle has quickly made a name for herself as the go-to designer for high-end nightwear. Olivia von Halle has always striven for the absolute best practice when sourcing, manufacturing and retailing each garment. Details are of the utmost importance, from the exclusive prints and handmade silk piping to the mother of pearl buttons and French seams.
