Olivia Carrano


Bio, Details and contacts for Olivia Carrano.


After growing up in the Bay Area, Olivia moved to Europe to study contemporary art in Barcelona, Spain. She then went to study fashion at Istituto Marangoni in Milan, Italy. She started her career in Milan working with several influential fashion designers including Raf Simons, Neil Barrett, and Stella McCartney, where she had the opportunity to develop her craft.  

Drawn by the desire to create costumes as a medium to tell stories, Olivia transitioned to the narrative world. Her depth of knowledge from the fashion industry informs her work and lends itself to meet the unique demands of creating a look that tells a story, but is also stylistically impeccable. 

Since moving to Los Angeles, Olivia has been creating costumes for an array of diverse projects, including a music video for the artist Blondie, the award-winning TV series "Two Sentence Horror Stories" by Warner Brothers,  Eva Vives' debut film "All About Nina" and campaigns for brands such as Matsuda, Nike, and Delta, among others.

Recent collaborations include "The Four" on Fox and the 90th edition of the Academy Awards.

Olivia's films have premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, SXSW, Palm Springs Film Festival and Bentonville Film Festival.
