Opening Ceremony is very much an international brand, taking its name from the modern Olympic games and its inspiration from the mission statement of that renowned and high profile event. The brand was established in 2002 and has grown from a simple venture between two friends into a firmly established name on the global fashion scene. Opening Ceremony has been a great collaborator over the past decade or so and some of its most famous associations include Rodarte and Topshop. The clothing line from the brand has been developed along its principles of creativity and friendship across international lines and offers a wide selection of fresh, contemporary looks. Clothing, accessories and shoes are all part of the offering, which is frequently colorful and often plays with different prints.
