EM+ Member Shout Out- Meet Olay!
Olayinka is a breath of fresh air! She is gorgeous, funny and outgoing. She recently moved to NYC to chase her dream of a professional modeling career and she is absolutely loving it!
Olay (as she likes to be called), was not only chosen on ExploreModeling to walk the runway at MBFW for Nicolita Swimwear, but was also chosen for an editorial piece for Caribbean Living Magazine! ONE, out of the fourteen models walking the Nicolita MBFW show, was chosen. And Olay had "that special something that shined", said Nicole Di Rocco, Designer and Creator of Nicolita Swimwear. Olay shares, “I’m still in shock that I was chosen. I remember being on the phone with Cristina while she delivered the good news and I was smiling so hard my cheeks began to hurt! Everything about the shoot was awesome, from the swimwear and hair to the make-up and location. The team was so much fun. Not to mention the amazing final images by Tim Coburn!".
When asked about her experience at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Olayinka said,
Walking for Nicolita at MBFW was a dream come true! It was honestly the most fun I’ve ever had on a runway. I was able to be myself and show off the swimwear as well as my personality (which never happens at the same time). Everyone was so nice and excited to be there which helped make that experience one I’ll never forget".
One of the fun questions we asked Olay was about her secret passions. “My second passion after modeling would be between dancing and singing. When it comes to singing, my sisters and I were like Destiny's Child. We would sing all around the house while our mom directed. I guess we were pretty good… the neighbors never complained!, tells Olay.
Olay would love to connect with you! You can find her at her EM Plus Profile
