viva la vie couture

I'm a colourful person by heart and born designer. My private clothing label, Viva La Vie Couture came about from my love of all things nostalgic and my mismatched, one-of-a-kind dress sense.

With Viva La Vie Couture, I sought out to create modernised mix-and-match clothing and accessories to add to your existing wardrobe.

Each clothing and accessory item is designed and handmade in-house, staying true to the simple, stripped down and straight forward style. The design aesthetic translates with a certain quirky charm that is only found in handmade clothing.

Viva La Vie Couture is driven by diversity and influenced by anti-fashion, New Romanticism, visual art, music, literature and film.
