Born and raised on the tiny island of Tahiti, French Polynesia, a perfect jewel-like island set amidst the turquoise vastness of the Pacific – it seems almost pre-destined that the bounty of the ocean would provide an endless source of inspiration for the exquisitely crafted creations of Vaite Perrin, the founder of Ocean light.
Leaving the South Pacific at the tender age of eighteen, Vaite carried her passion for form and beauty to Paris. Diligently pursuing a career as gemologist after graduating from the city’s oldest recorded school of jewellery, Vaite honed her skills with the Federation of Jewellery Makers of “place Vendôme”.
Now based in Sydney at the edge of the Southern Pacific, Vaite’s journey has come full circle where she balances a rich and full family life with 'Ocean Light’ – exquisite creations that carry the beauty of the ocean wherever they go, however they’re worn.
About her cover-up dresses, she explains: “I adore the ocean and make a conscious effort to swim and connect with the water every day. That’s how I had the idea of a beach swim cover up dress. Functional and practical on one level, I’ve not compromised on creating a dress with elegance at it’s heart.”
