This woman is amazing. And obviously elegant and graceful in a way I will only ever dream of being. She is talented and beautiful and generous and kind and a lot of other wonderful things that would take far too much time to type out. Olivia is currently getting her PhD in MSE and Nanotechnology at UW is and is well on her way to saving the planet – but in her spare time, she does sporty things like climb, bike, and dance, and does crafty things like knit and sew. Indeed the purpose of this shoot was to document one of her latest creations – the fabulous sequined number you see below. Read more about her process here – and if you fancy a look at her etsy shop, there are lots of incredible Olivia originals for purchase. The beautiful headpiece was made by Kali Wagner, craft queen and brownie baker extraordinaire. So here we are, one of my favorite shoots to date.
