Team

Wir sind olives&leos

Olivia – Founder

I have always been drawn to fashion – a gene I probably inherited from my Grandma who was a dressmaker. Nevertheless, growing up in Zurich, the heart of the financial industry, I started a career in banking where I worked for the last 15 years.

2015 was the first time I actively pursued my personal interest in fair and ethically produced clothing. I was eager to know more about it and attended various talks, went to lectures and spent hours researching the market. I was surprised that the offer in Switzerland was almost inexistent compared to other countries in Europe and especially online. After visiting Berlin to attend the Greenshowroom / Ethical Fashion show and to engage with many inspiring designers, I decided to commit entirely to ethical clothing.
I want to support the “slow fashion” movement and help to build a leading range of eco-friendly fashion in Switzerland. Therefore, I do what I love – I connect people with each other.

Anja – Partner

I can assert of myself as well that the development of fashion is part of my life continuously. With passion I have tracked the latest trends – like among others the ‘slow fashion’ movement. It is for me a heart affair, to make some change on the Swiss fashion market. For that purpose I was very grateful to have met Olivia at her showroom by chance. She reported me about the idea of olives&leos and I was enthusiastic about it from the first attempt for her ideas and intentions. It was coincidence that Olivia was looking for a support and now I’m totally convinced with my heart to bring more sustainable fashion to Switzerland.
