NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — ‘Making the Cut’ makes the cut with a New Orleans fashion designer.
Slicing into reality TV is 27-year-old Olivia Oblanc.
WGNO’S Bill Wood chats with Olivia who’s living and working now in New York City.
Olivia says, “I still have an LA ID, just so I can strike up a conversation, you’re from New Orleans!”
Olivia taught herself to sew back home in New Orleans.
Now, she’s been a designing woman on a TV show with Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn.
Bill Wood says, “On the show, Tim Gunn described one of your creations as something Bea Arthur would wear on the Golden Girls.”
Olivia says, “He was pretty harsh, a lot of people tell me that Tim’s speaking from the heart, so I respect it.”
With jeans you can wear backward, Olivia’s got some famous names wearing her name.
She says, “My most popular item was worn by Kendall Jenner, dubbed her most popular jeans of the summer.”
