About the author
In 2010, Olivia started her blog ‘What Olivia Did’ as a means of documenting her writing and photography and setting up an online portfolio for her work. To build her knowledge in fashion Olivia spent several years interning at magazines such as NME, Look, Company and Notebook, ticking off everything from organizing fashion cupboards to holding interviews with the fashion-world’s finest. She then began a freelance career, writing for The Debrief, Cosmopolitan and Glamour UK, whilst managing her blog on the side. In 2011 Olivia went on to win the Cosmopolitan Blog Award for best newcomer and in 2014 she went full time with ‘What Olivia Did’, introducing YouTube to her repertoire, with videos ranging from style, beauty and travel. Fast forward four years and she has worked with the U.K’s biggest fashion brands, such as Topshop, Stella McCartney, Kate Spade and Mulberry.
Olivia signed with Storm Management in 2016 and went on to be nominated for Best YouTuber at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in 2017. Most recently she began a lifestyle and fashion podcast with close friend and editor, Charlotte Jacklin. The podcast is titled ‘The Fringe of It’ which charted at number one during its first week of release and continues to produce weekly episodes.
Olivia is currently working on her first book.
