OLORI SWANK

Olori Swank’s bold, blue hair makes her stand out almost as much as her work does. She has styled celebrities including T.I., Tyrese, Childish Gambino and Teyena Taylor and has also done editorial styling for Billboard, Fader and Upscale and for television and film. In an interview with the Huffington Post, she said of her fashion background, “Well, my parents are really, really fashionable, and they’ve always dressed me and my siblings no matter where we’re going, even if we’re staying home doing nothing.”

Olori is of Nigerian heritage and it forms part of her style inspiration. In 2013 she styled entrepreneur Angela Simmons in Nigerian brands for her appearances at the Music Meets Runway fashion show in Lagos, Nigeria. Swank is also a published author, has an online boutique and runs coaching sessions in styling; she is also launching an online store.
