LAURA GRACE OLIVEIRA
Secession is a contemporary women’s wear collection that is rooted in the designer’s changing perception of what happiness is, and finding it through art and dress. The name of the collection comes from the Vienna Secession art movement of the late 1800s that challenged norms within artistic expression. The collection explores sustainable fashion practices without compromising style and statement while allowing for personalization and transformability throughout seasons, occasions and different wardrobes. Secession aims to embrace femininity and sustainability through a mixture of staple and standout pieces.
Secession has helped me realize the change I can make as a designer by exploring new ways of thinking and creating new paths for myself within the fashion industry. Thank you to my family, friends and peers for the support through this journey and beyond as I continue to navigate this world and industry as a designer.
