FRA Inspiration Friday, Olivia Cantillon

Olivia Cantillon


Olivia Cantillon, FRA Graduate

We have a very exciting, jet setting, glamorous former FRA student to introduce to you all this week. Olivia Cantillon studied our Level 3 Fashion Retail course and then progressed onto the Level 4 Buying course. She has had a fantastic career so far since leaving the academy so read below to hear all about it...

"Since leaving The FRA, my journey within the fashion industry has been one of colour and creativity. Starting out as an intern with Star Magazine throughout my course at the academy, I soon after received my industry break and joined the team as their Junior Fashion Assistant. Within three years I had worked my way up to Deputy Fashion Editor and was ready for new challenges. I began gaining international styling experience and freelanced with ELLE Netherlands on there London-based editorial shoots.

With a new love for luxury fashion, I took a well-heeled leap of faith and joined HELLO! Magazine Middle East as their Dubai-based Fashion & Beauty Editor. Forever with a dream to join a monthly title, I then began styling for Middle Eastern glossy magazine, MOJEH, where I worked on editorial shoots with the world’s most incredible brands such as Dior, Louis Vuitton and Chanel.

Two years after moving across the world, I have now returned to London and am set to launch my own styling-based shopping platform for the fashion-obsessed shopping addicts like myself!"
