Back to Italy! We had the opportunity to visit with the gorgeous Olivia Gama out of Milan. Her Instagram page details her wonderful fashion and travel sense. She was wonderful enough to give us some time and we strongly encourage you to check it out! Be sure to visit her Instagram feed as well!
When did your interest in fashion and beauty begin?
When I was just 10 years old I started to create my own bags, just to chill out with my little school girlfriends. The love for fashion was probably born with me, I really started very young behaving like a model with my mom’s clothes, shoes and bags. My dream was to become a Fashion Model and I have always been inspired by the look of Audrey Hepburn.
When did you decide to become a fashion influencer?
I went to a fashion show during the Milan Fashion Week, few years ago, and the most interesting outfit that I saw were not the one on the catwalks!!! That has been truly inspiring for me and from that moment on I have been invited to many events of the Milan fashion week. I found that my outfit were very inspiring for fashion addicted and I really loved the idea to share with them suggestions and outfits. At the beginning was just a game than it has become a job.
How do you stay up to date with the latest fashion and beauty trends?
I love to read magazines, I buy international fashion magazines every week and I look for new trends on instagram.
What is your favorite social platform and why?
My favorite social platform is for sure instagram, I really love it because it speaks through images, it is so easy, so direct, that I really could’n t live without it!
What outfit have you worn that most represents your fashion style?
I really love dresses, evening dresses, and I can really wear them easily for any occasion, even with tennis shoes!
What are your 5 essential travel items?
My 5 essential travel items are: my small iron, sunglasses, a hat, a pair of leggings and a nice bag. But to tell you the truth when I travel I take with me the entire wardrobe if I can!
Who is your favorite brand/designer? Do you own any of their designs?
I don’t have a single designer that I am in love with, I fall in love every day with many items of different brand, maybe that is why I am a fashion influencer!
How do you avoid awkward poses while shooting? You look so natural in all of your photos!
I usually work with many photographers most of them are friends and I really feel comfortable to work with them, that is probably why I look so natural.
What are your goals for 2017?
I really love my job and I will work hard to grow in this field, I really know that will be difficult, but I really want to reach the popularity of an international fashion influencer. Of course I also have other goals as a woman, and those will remain my little big secrets!
