FUN IN THE SUNWe've got a love/hate relationship with the Australian sun. We love fun in the sun, we love spending long summer days at the beach, in the pool - anywhere in the great outdoors. But it also comes with increased UV exposure which increases skin cancer risk as well as eye damage and premature ageing. Olasol helps you to cover up from the sun while still standing out from the crowd!
Olasol is about making bright, bold outfits for fun in the sun.
My passion for sunshine, colour, making, and the beach all meet here.
Living on the Sunshine Coast I’ve become increasingly aware of how important it is to protect yourself from the sun every time you go out, and seriously it’s not just kids who hate putting on sunscreen. Covering up became a much better way for us to avoid excessive sun exposure.
But not with boring clothes, and not the kind of fast fashion that is increasingly having an impact on our planet. I have found amazing, unique prints in gorgeous bright colours, using natural organic or recycled synthetic fibres wherever possible and all hand-made to order right here in Australian adhering to the principles of slow and sustainable fashion.
As such please allow 1 to 3 weeks for this process with every effort made to reduce waste and the footprint made on the planet. Slow and sustainable fashion.
So enjoy your made to order, handmade style out there!
Oh, and I love custom orders, so contact me with anything you need.
