Olivia Perez is the founder and Editor in Chief of Friend of a Friend, a lifestyle media publication founded on the notion of discovery. A NYC transplant by way of LA, Olivia has made her mark as a editorial and cultural archeologists, encouraging her readers to push past their comfort zone, create their own trends, and explore uncharted territories in their every day life. A recent graduate of New York University, Olivia pursued a holistic understanding of the global fashion industry, landing coveted roles at Moda Operandi, Teen Vogue, and Hermès International, where she worked extensively in marketing, editorial, styling and buying. In May 2015, Olivia launched Friend of a Friend, and has since collaborated and partnered with influencers from Gigi Hadid, Sofia Richie, and Garrett Leight, to brands like Coach, Topshop, and Chanel. Today, the site has expanded with an e-commerce platform, hosted multiple pop up shops, and garnered a following of over 200,000 readers, with more to come.
