"Inspired by my daughter Olivia, teaming up with my mum Evelyn and my sister Laarni, together we create beautiful handmade collections." - Charmaine
"It all started with Olivia who inspired us and gave us a new hobby that we are passionate about since 2012. Friends and family loved our designs on Olivia so much that we received requests if we could make more. We decided to make custom order for special occasions and eventually grew to what we are today. We started out at the Heavitree Gap Markets and moved to Todd Mall Markets in Alice Springs. Olivia's Closet have also taken part in the Uluru Outback Festival held annually and we have participated in many fundraising campaigns in and around Alice Springs.
We are a family business and we strive to make genuine connections with our customers in Australia and overseas. Olivia's Closet have made deliveries to the Americas, Europe and Asia so please don't hesitate to email us if you'd like our collections delivered overseas.
In 2016, we launched our website oliviasclosetxo.com and we are pretty excited that we have come to this point as it allows us to keep doing what we love without the pressure of carting our young baby to the markets every Sunday.
Our current catalogue showcases the artwork of Anangu artists from Central Australia, and the fabrics are just divine! We have lived here in Alice Springs since 1995 and we love our little community. I came across these beautiful fabrics when I was scouting for a new project. My son Quentin was 6 months old at the time I felt that I had some creative energy reserves that I could put into good use. I needed an outlet to keep me centred. I was in awe at the quality of the fabrics and the prints were magnetic! Each fabric is carefully chosen to represent the artists in and around Alice Springs who deserves so much credit and recognition for the art work that they do.
We wil be adding more item to the catalogue in due time, including unisex and boys clothing. Coming soon! Subscribe to our website oliviasclosetxo.com for more updates."
