Rendez-Vous with Elise By Olsen

Coming to Grips with Generation Z

On Monday, September 16th, editor, publisher and curator Elise By Olsen will sit down with Director Danilo Venturi for a compelling conversation, touching on Generation Z, the fashion industry and the essence of youth.

Elise By Olsen grew up with the internet. At an age when most of us were still playing with Barbies and plastic cars, the young entrepreneur was busy building her empire, writing content for her blog and crafting an impressive career. At the tender age of 13, she was internationally recognized as “the world’s youngest editor-in-chief,” releasing her first publication, Recens Paper, a youth culture magazine made for kids and more importantly, by kids. When she turned 18, By Olsen, aware that she had outgrown her position, resigned.

In 2018, she became the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Wallet, a new publication dedicated to the critical dialogue within the fashion industry. Some of her past collaborations include brands like Gucci, SSENSE and Galeries Lafayette.

Based in Oslo, Lisbon and London, the unapologetic creative is currently working on a variety of projects, from guest writing for magazines to pouring blood, sweat and tears into the newest issue of Wallet. On the occasion of her Polimoda Rendez-Vous, Elise By Olsen will invite us into the misunderstood world of Generation Z.
