Olivia Wall loves the different facets of fashion.
First of all, Olivia — a recent winner at the Magnifique Showcase organized by Victoria Henley in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.– enjoys being the focus of a fashion photographers. Her first fashion editorial job was shooting for Venus Beaute, a makeup and lash company. She was one of three models tapped to preview a new makeup line in photographs and video.
In addition, Olivia has been featured in several magazines. She recently made the cover of MARIKA Magazine Portrait Edition. The North Carolina resident also appeared in Dreamy Magazine’s Teen Edition.
Olivia also enjoys runway modeling. As misfortune would have it, her first runway show –New York City’s HiTechMODA Fashion Week—happened before the COVID 19 pandemic (February 2020) shut down runway shows across the world. But in that single effort, she learned about what it takes to be a runway model.
Now that the pandemic lockdown has been loosened, Olivia has had the opportunity to walk in a couple of local fashion shows. She has used these opportunities to refine her walk and to connect with designers, photographers and other models. She has walked for Venancio Tadeo International Fashion Designer, House of LaRue and The Look 42.
Olivia is taking her love for modeling to learn about the other half of the fashion equation. She has begun to design her own clothes. She has begun sketching out collections while learning sewing to breathe life into her creative ambitions.
