As a fashion and entertainment executive and new mom (her daughter, Liv, is 13-months-old), we can only imagine how busy the past year has been for Allison Oleskey. But as the co-founder of SHO+CO, a boutique agency specializing in celebrity and influencer initiatives, we are certain that she has mastered the art of juggling lots of demands on her time.
Winter is over — and the 50-degree weather, vibrant pops of color, and sudden need to sneeze, give us a peek of the sunny season ahead. While it’s not quite warm enough to bare all of our limbs just yet, we’ve entered the grace period called “transitional dressing,” when the first batch of spring pieces that have been hiding in closets finally appear alongside some lingering cold-weather favorites. Anything’s fair game: fur coats, thin jackets, cuffed jeans, tights, sandals, and sneaker wedges, even when they’re all worn together. So we sent the Cut’s photographer, Bek Andersen, to capture stylish mix-and-match looks from the week. Click through the slideshow to get some inspiration for weekend outfits — you’ll probably be itching for a nice new pair of sunglasses by time you’re done.
We first met Allison Oleskey in Los Angeles a short while ago (when we were invited to her house to attend an Oscar viewing party). She began her career in PR and talent management working at BWR Public Relations. From there, she toyed around with a few companies and ended up in the publishing world heading over to Harper’s Bazaar as the special projects director. She joined Starworks in 2002 and recently, along with her style guru and best friend Sharon Ainsberg (who is a proud graduate of The Coveteur High) launched SHO & CO., a bi-coastal fashion, lifestyle and entertainment agency specializing in celebrity and influencer casting and integration for global brands.
Sharon Ainsberg is the co-founder of SHO + Company, a fashion, lifestyle and entertainment agency. With offices in New York and Los Angeles, SHO + Company specializes in celebrity and influencer integration for global brands.
