Olilia owner and designer, Marji Asgari, was born and raised in North Vancouver, B.C. Canada. Her entrepreneurial spirit and love for design started at the early age of 14 when she began making and selling jewelry to friends and local shops. Marji’s passion took a back seat while she pursued a B.A. in Business Administration from Simon Fraser University. Upon the successful completion of her B.A., Marji enriched her academic endeavors by achieving a Chartered Accounting designation.
In 2002 Marji’s adorable daughter, Olivia was born, with a full, thick head of hair. Unable to find any beautiful hair accessories that would tame her daughter’s gorgeous locks, Marji once again tapped into her designer spirit. After constant questioning as to where to buy her daughter’s fabulous bows, Marji decided to abandon the corporate world and start designing and manufacturing hair accessories for all to enjoy. So, in 2004, Olilia Designs was launched (originally operating under the name Girly Girls).
Fast forward to 13 successful years later, Olilia has grown from its infancy as exclusively designing children’s hair accessories to being a longstanding Swarovski partner, designing and manufacturing accessories for all occasions; for girls of all ages.
