Born and raised in Oslo, Norway, Fam Irvoll graduated from Esmod International in 2005 and later from Central St Martins in London in 2008. Irvoll has also worked as an assistant for designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Gareth Pugh and norwegian designer Peter Løchstøer.
All Fam’s designs are heavily influenced by her love of childhood memorabilia and creates a grand sense of warming nostalgia. Her previous collection was reflective of the famous American artist Roy Lichtenstein’s work, with pop prints and three dimensional speech bubbles.
Her signature style of bright colours, three dimensional shapes combined with cartoon elements is immediately apparent in her SS14 collection. She contrasts bright turquoise and bold purple with cream and charcoal grey for a collection that screams playfulness but is also extremely wearable. All the latex pieces in the Fam Irvoll collection are designed and made by Vin and Omi under their label VO taking Fam's prints as inspiration.

The collection also features three dimensional ruffles and chunky colour-block platforms. Cartoon caricatures continue from last season but tigers, roses and swallows take centre stage this time around. Statement eyes, dark lips and perfectly coiffed updo’s complete the whimsical look.
