OLIVIA CULPO has created a substantial platform in the modeling, beauty and fashion spaces. What began as a minor pageant run turned into a multi-title winning streak, culminating in a highly successful modeling career that has since made Olivia a household name. In just a matter of years, she has created a massive worldwide platform (which includes an Instagram following of more than 4.7M) that stretches across the entertainment, beauty, and fashion spaces, substantiating herself as a fierce entrepreneur and business-minded woman.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Olivia launched “More Than A Mask,” a line of nonsurgical, nonmedical face masks that, with each purchase, donate a portion of sales to Feeding America and Color of Change; thus far, More Than A Mask has helped provide 1.5M meals through Feeding America and raised $10k for Color of Change. Expanding even further, Olivia’s recent collaboration with Express, titled “Express Together,” which was available online and in-stores, exemplified her unique and authentic creative approach, as well as her commitment to giving back.
Most recently, Olivia and her sisters, Aurora and Sophia, collaborated with Macy’s to launch an exclusive ready-to-wear collection, Culpos X INC. The collection features three must-have capsules that offer customers quality fashion at affordable prices. The first capsule was released in October 2020, the second was a holiday-timed launch in December 2020, and the final launch is set for this month, January 2021. As a special limited edition launch for the holidays, Culpos X INC and Macy’s collaborated with Olivia’s “More Than A Mask” to help raise money for the philanthropic initiative; Macy’s will donate 20% of the purchase price of the masks to Girls Inc. to help inspire girls to be strong, smart and bold.
