I’m Olivia, I’m an architect but I studied textile and decorative arts in high-school (this means I designed lots of prints for textiles). I love colors and I think they can brighten our days and cheer us up. I try to create simple, elegant patterns inspired by nature, architecture and art.
Victor’s Boutique resulted from my need to have beautifully colored accessories and clothes that I couldn’t find in the stores or were very expensive. I began to sew six years ago but as a child I was always making clothes for my dolls. My husband bought me a sewing machine because I was always telling him I wished I had one. I was pregnant with my son at that time, so I had some free time and I started to sew simple things, like pillow cases and baby burp cloths. Soon I started making clothes for myself and other people, like dresses, trousers, skirts, overalls, vests, blouses. I’m wearing many of them daily and my son always has new backpacks, shorts, hats, scarves or vests made with the latest designer fabrics. I love the fabrics from Robert Kaufman Fabrics, Michael Miller Fabrics, Riley Blake Fabrics, Tula Pink Fabrics, Liberty London.
I started making bags because I wanted some bags that matched my new self made clothes. I painted the bags because I’m a bit tired of all the dull bags I see everywhere around and I think having a few unique, special, statement textile bags in your wardrobe can improve your style and is surely cheaper than having a few unique leather bags, right?
I love making bags, wallets and circle skirts and I love to paint them with original prints that I design. I chose to hand-paint my clothes because I don’t find many fabrics that have prints I like, so I had to create them to fit my taste. In the meantime I had to create other objects to help me speed up the painting process, like stencils for flowers, maps.
