The heart of Olivia Sparks’ S/S17 collection is environmental sustainability. Fashion offers a unique opportunity for conscious consumption, and Olivia believes that expectant mothers are a demographic group uniquely attuned to the needs of the planet. Accordingly, she has designed her collection to be worn by environmentally conscious women before, during, and after their pregnancy. Olivia Sparks has partnered with Thread, a B Corp Certified company, for this collection. Thread’s textiles are manufactured from recycled soda bottles using fair trade Haitian labour. Inspired by the recycling process, this collection takes cues from the bulbous shapes of soda bottles, and makes reference to their screw top necks using gathers. Olivia Sparks’ collection consists of 12 garments and utilizes Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified textiles, in addition to Thread’s ground to good™ fabrics. The collection presents a unique take on the classic legging by employing zero waste pattern cutting techniques. Green by Olivia Sparks merges motherhood, textile innovation, and environmental responsibility.
