She is young, fierce and determined to make a change in the fast-paced industry that is fashion.
Doriane van Overeem is a Belgian fashion designer, who graduated from La Cambre Mode(s) in Brussels and developed her skills in the studios of Manish Arora, Bernhard Willhelm, Meadham Kirchhoff and Louise Gray.
For DVO, it is not enough to only create pretty clothes; they actually question society, its insatiable consumerism and treatment of women.
Doriane van Overeem supports slow fashion with bi-annual collections that are fully designed and manufactured in Belgium. The brand's values, know-how, and irreproachable finishes to counter mass consumption and raise public awareness of labor inequalities. The collections are developed around a woman's ambivalence : the DVO woman is bold and charismatic, yet not afraid to show her emotions and embrace her moments of weakness and learn from them.
A nonconformist and sassy attitude, infused in timeless pieces combined of precious but comfortable materials, reveal the outsider brand : where insolence finally meets elegance.
A wolf in sheep's clothing. She's a Saint and a sex worker. She's the beloved mother and the naughty girl.
This collection is speaking against this stereotypical notion of what a woman should be like, innocent, full of humility, never angry, opposed to what a woman really is. We cannot oversimplify women to fit a certain stereotype or preconceived notion, but we also cannot hold them up to unreasonable expectations or demand perfection.
