Official Olympic Costumes Revealed! Meet The Designers Including Lady Gaga's Milliner

Official Olympic Costumes Revealed! Plus The Designers Behind Them Including Lady Gaga's Milliner

So, you’ve heard all about Stella McCartney’s amaze Team GB kits for Olympic competitors – but what about everyone else? Alongside the athletes, there are also more than 300 volunteers involved in the victory ceremonies throughout The Games, presenting flowers and medals to the winners. With all eyes on them, it’s no surprise that they want to look their best – and today, their outfits have finally been revealed.

Zara Gorman – who, incidentally, has also worked for none other than Lady Gaga - Tom Crisp and Trine Hav Christensen of London’s Royal College of Art have worked tirelessly over the last eight months to produce unique purple podiums and costumes that will dazzle the crowds.

Taking inspiration from Greek mythology, British heritage and even the architecture of the Olympic venues, the outfits will be seen by millions at the 805 (yes, 805!) victory ceremonies.

Incredibly, one of the designers - Zara Gorman, who graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2010 with an MA in Fashion Millinery - designed the hats that Lady Gaga wore in her music video ‘Marry The Night’, and has also worked for Bjork, Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia and I-D. ‘The process has been amazing,’ she says. ‘This really has been a project to savour. It’s quite staggering being involved in such a prolific event – it’s really only just starting to dawn on me.’

And Zara says that this project has been even more rewarding than working with The Gaga so far. ‘This is clearly far bigger than anything I’ve done before. And from the point of view of being a British milliner, making things for such an amazing occasion like the Olympics, I’d say that this is on a whole new level.’

Tom Crisp, the menswear designer who at 24 already has a more than impressive past after being featured in British Vogue and Elle, along with Trine Have Christensen who created the women’s looks, were chosen from hundreds of students at RCA to win the chance have their designs showcased at the Olympics.

‘Our designs were originally based around the graphics of the Olympic logo and looking into the Knights of the Round Table,’ Tom says. ‘There’s no doubt that it’s been a massive pressure, but definitely one that I’ve been more than happy to take on.

‘I’m so excited to see our designs in action. It’ll be an extremely proud moment.’

Trine, who graduated from the Danish design school Teko in 2008 and is currently studying for her MA in Fashion Womenswear, added, ‘This is a huge thing and obviously we all wanted to establish the Olympics with our designs, but at the same time it had to be understandable. It’s all costumes and it should be, but it should still be readable because it’s going to be broadcast all around the world.

‘So it’s finding that very fine line between taking chances to be noticeable but at the same time making beautiful garments that would fit into The Games and the aesthetics of the Olympics.’

So what’s the verdict? Love them, or hate them? Tell us below!
