Olana was born out of a desire to create a summer capsule wardrobe of simplicity, charm and timelessness and offers a fresh, contemporary take on classic, nostalgic summer pieces. Understated and effortless, each Olana piece evokes a sense of ease and wonder and bestows a subtle chicness that whispers 'I just threw this on'. Fusing together sophistication and sensuality, Olana offers a unique style that is simultaneously refined and casual, elegant and cool. Olana represents a firmly feminine lifestyle where women can imagine living out their most beautiful, memorable days.
Other than our very modest stockpile of just 3-5 items per design, each garment in the collection is made to order in our studio in the north of England and is carefully put together by a small team of artisan dressmakers with over 50 years experience in the UK's fashion industry. The process for creating each garment involves designing, cutting, stitching, steaming, labelling, packaging and sending to each of our customers personally. Our small scale production line and made-to-order approach means that we are able to strive for as minimal waste on resources and fabrics as possible. Read our handmade tale.
Determined not to be part of the fast fashion carousel, we aim to create key, trusted, classic pieces with great cut and lasting style. Using the fibre of both the past and the future, Olana positions itself as part of a conscious, soulful, slow-fashion movement. From design to production, everything is lovingly considered and skilfully crafted to bring you garments of beauty, substance and quality. Each garment is designed with the intention of holding a place in your wardrobe (and your hearts) for always.
A brand for women made by women.
