My name is Octavia Greig and I am the founder of ONE GENERATION. I had the vision of ONE GENERATION during my last year of school in March 2018. It all started in the art block, printing and painting onto my clothing. Through social media, supportive friends and word of mouth, it expanded quickly.
From making those first prints in the art block, finding a manufacturer to finally launching my first collection and hosting an event, the experience of starting and growing ONE GENERATION has been a huge learning process for me….
Over the past year, I attend the Royal Drawing School, completing their Art Foundation diploma.
This year I will be taking a year out to dedicate my time to ONE GENERATION before I start a BA in painting/printmaking at Camberwell School of Arts the following September.
With the launch of my new collection and a lot of ideas and plans underway this year will be crucial for ONE GENERATION...
WHAT IS ONE GENERATION?
ONE GENERATION is about the coming together of people and ideas. Our values are echoed through our name "ONE GENERATION". It is about being all-inclusive.
Our ideas are constantly evolving and are not limited to one medium, that being clothing. Our vision, values and interests go far beyond material goods, spreading into experience and events.
THROUGH OUR CLOTHING WE WANT TO MAKE YOU THINK!
Art is a big inspiration for us. The process of developing our idea involves a lot of research. The constructing and deconstructing our initial ideas is a long road of designing, trial and error. Our designs are constantly evolving. It not only gives us a chance to educate YOU but also to educate OURSELVES.
We have learnt a lot along the way hope to share that with you.
