Olivia Anthony is an up and coming designer, she didn’t go to school for design, she started her line Liv Streetwear back in 2012, while still studying theater arts at Alabama State University.
“I’m originally a dancer, but I feel like fashion is what people know me for,” 27-year-old Anthony told Billboard of her start. “When I was in school it just wasn’t fun for me anymore. I went to LA to visit my cousin, and she’s a makeup artist and took me to set. I was assisting the stylist and I was like ‘OK cool, I can see this happening.’ When I went back to school, this group on campus called Elite Models came up to me and asked me to be a head stylist of the group. So it kind of just grew from there.”
This amazing designer always knew she’d end up in New York, the city that never sleeps, she decided to move to the Big Apple after graduating from Alabama State University. While interning with Complex, as a freelance stylist and working in fashion retail, the designer took a leap of faith, quit her job and began her first brand, Liv Streetwear, which she is bringing the 90’s back in her on way.
