My name is Nancy Oziya, I am originally from Uganda. I have studied Fashion Design and Technology at RMIT and I have been working in the fashion industry for the past two years. I have done work for the NVG in collaboration with flack studio for the best of the best dining in 2019. I have also participated in Melbourne fashion week and VAMFF as well as design and make garments for individuals such as Jan Fran from studio 10. I have worked as a sewing teacher at The Social Studio a not for profit organisation located in Collingwood as well as work in manufacturing making scrubs during covid 19. My goal is starting my own clothing company and decided to get started during the lock down by making masks and selling them online. I am excited to say that my first clothing launch will be in late November.
My label Oziya references my African cultural heritage, it is Afro-inspired, very bright, loud and bold. Every little design will have a touch of brightness, it will be sophisticated, elegant, refined with a touch of playfulness. I like the idea of design that is simple yet different. Something that links to Africa, in all its incredible diversity, but sits in a different cultural setting. I think fashion can start new conversations, and I want to communicate who I am as an African-Australian through my designs.
