London based fashion designer Lianna Sheppard is the creative force behind Ocular, a range of bold, graphic, geometric, laser-cut, acrylic jewellery. We have bought the final pieces of this incredibly popular collection – the etched monochrome and silver mirror earrings and rings.
Lianna has a First Class BA (Hons) in fashion and textiles and an MA in fashion. After graduating in 2010 she did a number of work placements and internships before launching Ocular. The label was an instant hit, and has been stocked both nationally and internationally in Selfridges and Lik + Neon, London; The White Rabbit Gallery in the US, and The Red Door Gallery in Edinburgh. Lianna’s work has also been showcased at the Fashion and Textiles Museum, London, The National Gallery of Australia and the Red Dot Design Museum in Singapore.
Lianna is currently working full-time for a jewellery brand, and gaining yet more experience for future collections. Both her jewellery and a range of corresponding screen-printed T-shirts, jumpers and bags are still available, albeit with limited availability, until stocks run out.
Her introduction to the laser cutting process, together with her love of geometric shape and optical illusions, inspired a collection of simple lines where through a trick of the eye, a flat object has the visual illusion of being 3D. The collection recalls origami shapes but with a strong 1980s vibe.Lianna sketches on her computer in Adobe Illlustrator, has the designs etched and laser cut, and then puts all the pieces together. She says, “I love the feeling of seeing the final results and thinking ‘I made that’”.
Lianna’s signature 3D style is eye-catching and bold. This stunning collection bodes well for her future.
