Behind Her Label
Olivia (Liv) Anthony is the founder of the streetwear brand LIVSTREETWEAR, she empowers women to make a statement by just LIVIN. The amount of success and recognition Liv has already achieved for a designer of her generation is not surprising - she is young in years, but she is not young in experience and hustle. The Alabama native started her brand in college selling custom tees out of the back of her car in 2012. After college she built her brand and community while living in NYC. Liv’s larger than life personality and energy is the cornerstone of her brand, she creates collections and content inspired by the culture of the ‘90s and early 2000s. She uses bright colors, unique textures, and bold silhouettes in her apparel designs to celebrate and pay homage to the decade while bringing new life to vintage trends.
As a woman who’s been thriving in male dominated arenas for most of her life, it’s no surprise that Carla Cortijo is an emerging up-and-coming streetwear designer. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Carla’s love for creating fashion began with her first sewing machine at 11 years old, she’d been inspired by her grandmother who was a professional seamstress. That same grandmother gave Carla her first basketball at 3 years old, leading Carla to become the first Puerto Rican woman to play in the WNBA. In her collections, Carla strives to merge fashion, sports, and design. She is committed to craftsmanship and hard work in all her endeavors, Carla is a local hero – inspiring young women to thrive, dream, work and play hard.
