After completing a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science at Melbourne University, designer Livia Arena could no longer ignore her creative calling and enrolled to study fashion at RMIT. Debuting its first collection Pipe Dream at L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival’s Independent Runway in March 2011, the eponymous label has gained critical acclaim and is now stocked throughout Victoria and interstate.
With a focus on intelligent adaptations of classic styles, the desire to create basics that aren’t so basic is at the core of the label’s philosophy. Inspired by experiences and nostalgia as well as everyday surrounds and interactions, the label’s vision is to create clothing of quality and originality. Carefully sourced fabrics and restrained detailing lead to collections tailored to impart luxury in the everyday.
An ardent supporter of local industry, Livia Arena label takes pride in producing well constructed garments made locally in Melbourne.
