Collection “Elegant Woman” inspires the change in fashion by stretching beyond the boundaries of shape, volume and age. KO aims to show the woman as an always elegant and beautiful figure, regardless of barriers commonly put up by society. KO’s massive collection of elegant cocktail dresses and romantic gowns  featured models of all shapes and sizes. Opening with formfitting, flirty sheathes, the styles show Olivo’s versatility in sending perforated leather down the runway beside glittery tutus and bubbly ball gowns. The absolute winner of the show was sending both plus and straight sized models out in sheer, glittery overlays proving fashion has no limits.
