Gracy orla Ticout ∞ designer
This young woman was born and raised in Paris, France.
Originally from a Caribbean island called Guadeloupe, she has been surrounded by a melting pot of cultures and traditions ever since. Very adventurous, she started to explore the world pretty early and travel after travel she was exposed to the richness diversity is. This is definitely where she draws her inspiration from. She came on her own to Australia in 2011, then later on the next year graduated from Hospitality Management studies.
Fond of fashion and forever in love with African prints, she started to design clothes in her spare time in 2013.
She launched the OrlaDee fashion label in 2014.
OrlaDee, NOT ONLY A FASHION LABEL.. a movement !
OrlaDee is a extremely personnal project which she named after herself and her partner. She sees it as her bold personnality working on a missionary vision with her partner unconditionnal support. The first collection is entitled ‘Statement’. It is a highlighted tribute to African descendants ' roots where she encourages young generations to wear with pride traditional fabrics/prints revisited in an ultra chic spirit in harmony with the current time. She does believe it is not only a fun, fahionnable and colorful way for them to keep their cultures alive throughout themselves but honorable too.
She likes bold, funky, rich and catchy prints. Each print is therefore selected by herself or by close associates. She then sew personally each single piece. She likes to play with her collections. You would generally notice that she plays with unusual feminine cuts and mini length dresses in her woman line; because "there is nothing sexier than a woman's leg" she says.. You would usually see her as well playing the model game herself on her runways.
Gracy is a brave and ambitious Self-taught designer who has for only mission to see the African fashion in Australia blossom and impact others communities even as she insits in embracing diversity in her advertising campains. She already has shown her work to the Brisbane scene and in Melbourne. She plans on expanding her runways to different cities within Australia soon.
With the launching of her e-boutique, she hopes to seduce more and more people with the easywear wear articles proposed and by the same occasion make a name for herself.
