BACKSTAGE AT OLIVIA BALLARD
Photography by Oriane Verstraeten
Following the success of last season’s ‘AT DUSK – F/W 2023’ runway show, Olivia Ballard continues to explore how the intricacies of the body can shape form, life, and individuality. Her designs symbolise a harmonisation of different physicalities and identities, hereby continuously questioning both beauty standards and consumerism. Whereas ‘At Dusk FW23’ explored the shifting from light to dark, the slipping into our comforting garments, and the indulgence in the aesthetics of the night, the Spring/Summer 2024 Collection turns this exploration of the in-between towards materiality.
