Olivia Buckland tells us “It feels absolutely crazy and unreal” at clothes launch


By Josh Hodis

Olivia, congratulations on launching your new clothing range for quiz. Busy time for you at the moment, lakeside today, Manchester tomorrow and Glasgow next week promoting your 12 piece clothes collection.

Q. How does it feel to have your own collection?

It feels absolutely crazy and unreal. This time last year I was in a sales office working the normal 9-5.

Q. What’s your favourite piece from your collection?

My favourite would have to be the black embroidered velvet dress. The appliqué is so detailed that the dress would compliment anyone who wears it. I know it’s going to be very popular.

Q. What is the most essential fashion piece you have in your wardrobe?

It’s got to be my black skinny jeans. They go with absolutely everything.

Q. What can we expect to see from your clothes collection?

I have the four seasons in mind. Christmas coming up it has to be festive and sparkly. For summer I would like to concentrate on a stylish swimwear collection.
I would like for all ages and all sizes to feel amazing and stylish

Q. Who inspires you?

It can be anything that inspires me just by looking at something and thinking that would look great on someone, but I would have to say most of all would be those closest to me.

Q. What advice would you give to aspiring fashion designers?

I would advise them to take the risk. Go for it! Be creative and follow your dreams.


Q. What made you apply for Love Island?

It was absolute boredom. To be honest with you I did not think I would get accepted but contact grew everyday with the producers until they finally said that I would be appearing on the show. I could not believe it. It was over 5 different stages. It was such a long process.

Q. How does it feel to be the most followed love islander on Instagram?

It’s really crazy! I couldn’t believe it. I love what I do. I’m going to carry on with my passion and inspire young girls to follow their dreams.

Q. If you didn’t get the love island job, what would you be doing?
I’d probably be working in sales and planning on going to university.

Q. What would be your perfect date?

It would definitely not be a dinner date, so boring! I would like something quirky and special.

Q.What plans do you have for Christmas?

I will be sharing it between Birmingham and Essex, drinking a glass of prosecco whilst tucking into my roast dinner. Love it!


Thank you very much!
From us at Essex Mag we wish you all the best for the future.
