“Turning, after my closing bow, and seeing a smiling sea of red made me truly appreciate how fortunate I was to have shared with such beautiful friends in such a lovely experience.” - Charlene Figueras.
How do you wear love ? Or does love look its best when worn by someone who can carry it at its finest?
If you haven’t heard about O.W.L and currently living in Gibraltar, you’ve literally been living under a rock.
The Only.Wear.Love collection designed by Charlene Figueras reflects values and passions she holds dear, and embodies the culmination of lifelong love with numerous forays in the world of fashion such as being a model, photographer, bikini designer and coach.
Charlene has always opened her wardrobe to friends and family and this collection will be no different. All pieces are not for sale but to be reused and enjoyed. The concept is reusing and having sourced her fabrics over many years, the O.W.L collection provides a glimpse of the fashion world as seen through the eyes of Charlene herself. The collection started as three evening gowns for December 2016 Globe cover with the Miss Gibraltar winners, the idea then grew from those initial pieces.
The red garments created to make a vision of only wearing love, makes all those who have the pleasure of wearing an item feel a variety of different emotional states, strongly and positively experienced. When showcased in local charity fashion show FIGHTING BATTLES WITH FASHION the stage was radiating red glimpses of affection in every possible direction. The models wore appreciation whilst owning the catwalk, as O.W.L ‘s devotion shone through. Still this is just the beginning for Charlene and her passionate collection.
Only.Wear.Love was created to be more than simple evening dresses, the collection has a purpose to suit more than one type of woman. For over a year everywhere Charlene travelled to was inspiring her vision made for every type of individual that dares to credit these creations. Presenting affection towards shape as an understanding of body movement on the runway.
