Juliette Olah

Juliette is a fashion journalist, designer and digital creative who loves pizza, stationery, cats, art and animation. Having a lifelong passion for anything Japanese, she is currently freelancing in Tokyo, exploring the city’s abundance of kooky boutiques, cramped ramen shops and glorious, mind-expanding book stores. Occasionally she also stands on her head, practicing yoga in her itty-bitty Tokyo apartment! Alongside previous work in digital marketing for international fashion brands ASOS and eBay, Juliette has been writing for over 10 years, and has been published in magazines and websites all over the world including Cosmopolitan, Oyster, and Groupie Magazine.
