VIN + OMI are award winning fashion and multi media designers who work internationally. Our fashion work spans film, television, music and one-off creations.
Studio VIN + OMI produces two fashion collections each year. Since 2004 we have developed a range of unique to market textiles focussing on sustainable, eco-processes, which we use in our collecions. Our textiles and processes include :
Development of a range of rPET textiles from silk-like finishes to wool. Our rPET is made from salvaged plastic. We primarily source river and ocean clean up projects internationally.
No - kill fleece. We use fleece obtained from pet animals who live on smallholdings in the UK . These animals live out their natural lifespan
Sustainable - eco latex. We produce our own latex fabric sourced from a VIN + OMI funded rubber plantation in Malaysia. The small village that works on the plantation survives from the proceeds of the rubber harvesting. The trees are 'milked' to extract the rubber and are not destroyed. The natural latex sheeting produced has other natural ingredients added to produce a more elastic, yet breathable, biodegradable latex.
We have pioneered the development of chestnut 'leather' made from the skins of the chestnut and horse chestnut. This animal leather substitute is durable and waterproof. Natural pignement is added to product a range of colours.
We showcase our collections made from our textiles during London Fashion Week. Our designs have been worn by a range of artists and public figures including Debbie Harry, Kate Moss, Charlie XCX, Miley Cyrus, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Pamela Anderson and Michelle Obama.
