Riviera VIP Spring '22 Launch

A lot has changed in two years. Pandemics, lockdowns, borders opening, borders closing,  planning holidays, rescheduling holidays, ever-changing rules… our anxiety is rising thinking of what we have endured together!

Thankfully these memories are well and truly past us. We wouldn’t be here without the love and support from our customers and are excited to finally be able to show our appreciation and celebrate OnceWas’ milestones with our VIPs, including our brand new Styling Studio & latest Spring collection, Riviera.
As a perk of our loyalty program, we flew in our top VIPs for the day to attend the event as well as host our celebrity and influential supporters. Hosted by celebrity stylist Rachel Dennis, together we wined, feasted and discussed all things fashion.
It was so great to finally meet some of our interstate VIPs face to face & help them style their favourite pieces which we airfreighted in early for them.
“I have been shopping with OnceWas for 5 years now, I was beyond thrilled when Belinda contacted me to let me know I was selected to fly down and attend this beautiful event. I enjoyed listening to her speak about the collection and her design process, as well as have outfits pre-selected for me to try on, all which I loved!! My standouts where the Castro Blazer & Grace Pant. What I love about the loyalty program is that I get a surprise after ever purchase, the rewards add up really quickly!”  
Focusing on luxurious fabrics and patterns with unique intrigue, Director & Head Designer Belinda Glynn said the collection is a love letter to European escapes and Australian summers to come. 
“This collection is full of beautiful mix-and-match pieces each with a nod to the other. Every pattern is bold but subtle and can be worn time and time again, whether you’re on holiday or at home, you’ll have a piece of the beautiful Riviera sophistication with you”. 
“Each fabrication is also chosen to feel light and soft to the touch but also to travel well. We have numerous silk cotton pieces that can be packed and repacked while still maintaining their shape and flawless appearance.” 
There is nothing more pleasurable than touching opulent fabrics, trying on new styles and having a personal stylist to assist and guide your selection. We look forward to welcoming you to our fortnightly* Styling Studio to preview Riviera! OW x
