Olivia Dwyer obtained her BFA in fashion and textiles at Maine College of Art in 2018. Dwyer uses pattern drafting, sewing, machine knitting, weaving, and embroidery to create garments which discuss our relationships with ourselves and one another. These garments focus on topics of empathy, vulnerability, and regrowth. Making work with a dedication to using organic, and ethically obtained fibers, she hopes to reignite an interest in slow fashion through conceptual garments while engaging in contemporary social discourses.
