Olivia Palermo: Fashion shows are sacred!

Olivia Palermo treated shopping for her wedding dress like any other market appointment.

The 28-year-old is a regular on the front row at various Fashion Week presentations and always wows with her chic outfit choices.

While she likes to soak up the stylish atmosphere, it annoys her when people take photos of the designer garments.

“You’re not focusing in the same way as if you weren’t snapping away. Designers have worked too hard for you to take 25 pictures,” Olivia sighed to Flare magazine. “Beautiful ones will be up on anyway!”

2014 was a mammoth year for Olivia, which saw both her personal and professional life flourish.

She tied the knot with beau Johannes Huebl in June. Olivia wore a quirky Carolina Herrera ensemble to walk down the aisle, making sure she put her own spin on the traditional white wedding dress.

“I’m very much a fashion person. It was like going to any other market appointment and finding something I liked,” she explained of her gown choice.

Last year also saw Olivia move into the world of e-commerce, when she launched her own website.

The site allows fashion fans to shop the latest styles and trends, as well as read blog posts and find out new tips.

It also features Olivia’s own design work, including her collaboration with sunglasses brand Westward Leaning.

“The industry has changed so much in the last ten years, especially with the move to online. Between online evolving and e-commerce growing, it was the perfect time to start my website,” she smiled.
