Olori Swank is a rare breed with a very interesting story of her journey as a stylist. This bangin’ blue-haired diva hailing from Los Angeles is what we like to call a girl boss, which deems her a certified PYNK girl. Although Ms. Swank graduated from the University of Georgia, with honors, in Biology, Psychology and Pre-Med; the fashionable diva decided to take a leap of faith and channel her true passion, which was becoming a celebrity fashion stylist.
She has worked with celebrities such as, Angela Simmons, Dawn Richard, Tyrese, Christina Milian, Hosea Chanchez, Teyanna Taylor, Karrueche Tran, and more. Diligence and patience has paved the way to her success as a brand and the creation of her fashion boutique SWANK Blue. SWANK Blue is an online boutique that features trendy and affordable pieces in a variety of styles and sizes—personally selected by Ms. Swank.
After starting SWANK Blue without any investments and no budget, Ms. Swank has managed to build her company into a competitive retail boutique grossing about 100k per month. Some may say that she is lucky, but Ms. Swank worked her butt off to make her dreams come true. In addition to being a business owner and a flourishing brand herself, Ms. Swank also curates her workshop Eboutique 101 where she gives advice on building a brand, discusses how to develop a business with no investments, talks about the benefits and costs of incorporating your businesses name and more.
Ms. Swank should be rewarded with a hustler of the year award considering her impressive achievements. Along with all of her other endeavors, this young entrepreneur also hosts a fashion styling workshop where she delves into the fundamentals of the industry. There are three workshops in this package: The Business, The Fundamentals, and The Portfolio. Ms. Swank is certainly an inspiration for all women considering a career in fashion and all facets of the entertainment industry.
