Eliza O’Sullivan is a Textile Designer and creator of Mosey Me, A colourful homewares label that walks the line of playful sophistication. Her textiles adorn bed linen and tableware bringing colour and pattern into intimate spaces of her customers’ homes. Eliza graduated from RMIT in 2009 where she completed her Bachelor of Art in Textile Design. She then went on to work in the commercial design industry across apparel and homewares for 7 years before launching Mosey Me in November of 2016.
Born out of pure passion and desire to create her own brand, Mosey Me came to fruition after an inspiring trip to New York design week in 2016. “I spent two weeks in New York for design week and soaked up the city, completely unaware of what I was taking in. When I got back to my studio and started painting a whole different look emerged – it was new yet familiar and I had an energy I hadn’t felt before.”
Eliza’s main Influences are style, colour, mood and females. The process for designing begins by collating imagery that resonates with her and creating an ever-evolving mood board on her studio wall. The mood board consists of anything from fabric swatches, paint chips, fashion and interior images, floral arrangements and anything that feels right. From there she starts experimenting with paint, pattern and colour, constantly referring to the images up on the wall for guidance. Shapes might form from the pictures or feelings, and moods are evoked to communicate her connection and the story she creates from the images. These are then explored through pattern and colour arrangements.
Her dream “Mosey Me customer” is always at the centre of her mind whilst designing and constantly picturing the products in situ helps with design decisions. Largely inspired by females, Mosey Me’s mission is one of joy, inclusivity and connection. When you see a Mosey Me product you can’t help but smile because it’s smiling at you.
