Meet the House
Hannah Ollichon – Founder & Designer
As a teenager I’d rip up jeans and turn them into skirts, customising anything I could with a tatty bit of ribbon or old lace from my mum’s button box!
I was lucky enough to marry my lovely French husband twice but struggled so much to find a relaxed wedding outfit for the registry office part of our wedding that I decided to launch the first dress-less bridal collection in the world. I'm jumpsuit loving and two piece adoring; let's evolve away from the bridal stereotypes and simply be a special version of our normal selves.
Sofia Melendez - Head of Production
Abby Summerville - Head of Marketing, Communications & Press
Having worked in beauty and fragrance for most of my career, I am thrilled to add fashion to my repertoire. Having recently got engaged, I was thinking of a low-key shindig, where I wouldn’t want a big fussy dress. As soon as Hannah mentioned her concept to me, I was sold and just had to be involved.
Valerie Laird - Accounts
I first met Hannah 14 years ago when she joined the company I was working at. We immediately clicked and thereafter became great friends and colleagues. We worked so well together and I am now honoured that Hannah has asked me to join the team at House of Ollichon to manage the accounts for the company.
