Burlington, Conn.’s Olivia Zink is just 9 years old.
But her brand, On The Go with Princess O, was launched in 2017 when she was just 4. And already it’s slated to be shown at New York Fashion Week in February… for the second time.
The pageant princess will be at the 7th Annual Beauty it’s Everywhere Awards on Feb. 10 at the New Yorker Hotel. She’s also up for two awards.
(Olivia previously has been crowned as World’s Talented Miss Princess Ambassador for the World’s Talented Miss Organization and she currently is America’s Little Miss for the America’s Miss Organization.)
On The Go With Princess O is about more than fashion, the designer said. It’s also about supporting worthy causes. Olivia is helping the World Wildlife Foundation’s, “Save the Sea Turtles Mission.” She has also paired with The Crayon Initiative.
Sea turtles and crayon drawings created by Olivia figure prominently in the titleholder’s designs.
We caught up with Olivia to talk about fashion (with some help from mom Tara and aunt Kara) and to take some photos of the parochial school student in her latest collection.
