Melbourne-based designer Livia Arena is not your average fashion designer. With also a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science from Melbourne University under her belt, she takes on a more objective and realistic approach to fashion design. Focussing on adaptations of classic styles, the label specialises in creating pieces that you want to wear every day. Made locally in Melbourne from the finest natural fibres, think merino wool, soft silks and soft leathers, Arena’s pieces are not ruled by trends, but are designed to be cherished season after season. Her controlled and clean silhouettes with subtle detailing such as laser-cutouts, geometric necklines, asymmetric hemlines take on fuss-free forms that allow the wearer’s figure to shine through. Since graduating from RMIT and debuting her first collection at LMFF in 2011, the designer continues to captivate a cult following of luxury and contemporary day-wear devotees. In her spare time, Arena fosters kittens for The Lost Dogs’ Home and has as cat called Junkie.
