About the Brand:
Marie Oliver, a women’s lifestyle brand, is created to curate wardrobes filled with timeless, modern, and charming pieces that are, at once, elegant and easy. Subscribing to the belief that one can never be overdressed, Marie Oliver is designed to channel a confident sensibility from day to night.
Color, pattern, and silhouette fuse to create the celebration that is Marie Oliver. Marie Oliver’s evolving collections are conceived in a tandem effort between our North Carolina design studio and our talented team in New York City. Inspired by a lifestyle of all things style: travel, art and fashion, Marie Oliver is recognized for their slightly unexpected silhouettes and custom prints that lend true artwork to fine silks. With a great emphasis on fit and flattery, Marie Oliver is artfully tailored for today' modern woman.
About the Creator:
Sarah Doggett Evenson is Founder and Creative Director of Marie Oliver. Living by the belief that fashion makes a statement without saying a word, Sarah has appreciated fashion as a means of expression since a young age. Noting the stark correlation between a woman’s dress, and her confidence, charisma and charm, Sarah’s once passion fostered a foundation for Marie Oliver.
Motivated as much by personal friendships as she is by fashion icons of yesterday and today, Sarah designs each collection to evoke her personal style and the inspiration drawn from those around her. Her taste for cultural experiences and love for luxury interior design drive the importance of print & color in Marie Oliver collections, while her southern roots and the utmost happiness found when celebrating with friends and family inspire Marie Oliver’s effortlessly chic silhouettes.
In late 2012, after years of curating her personal wardrobe and driven by her father’s frequent reminder to “find something you love and learn how to be successful doing it”, Sarah began working with her now husband, Peter, to develop what was a mere childhood dream into a reality… her middle name, “Marie”, and his middle name, “Oliver”. Today, while Sarah oversees all creative aspects of the brand, Peter is responsible for developing and implementing Marie Oliver’s growth strategy and managing day- to- day affairs. Spring 2015 marks the launch of Marie Oliver’s debut collection in specialty boutiques across the US and Ecommerce at www.marieoliver.com
Marie Oliver is proudly headquartered in Greensboro, NC, where Sarah and Peter currently reside.
