ISABELLA OLIVER

Isabella Oliver

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

For Baukjen De Swaan Arons, Founder, style has always been important. As her first baby bump grew, she found the transition from her pre-pregnancy to pregnancy wardrobe left her personal style and taste behind. It was Baukjen’s belief that pregnancy clothes should be fun and enjoyable that gave her the inspiration to launch her own fashion label. She remembers, “When I was pregnant with my first child, I struggled to find maternity clothing that reflected my pre-pregnancy style. Not only did I want clothes that I felt comfortable in but I also that was great quality so that I could wear them time and again as my pregnancy progressed. We did lots of research and I realised there was little out there for women and this is where the inspiration for Isabella Oliver came from.”
