Our Story


Offering the very definition of luxury, both our Edinburgh & Auchterarder stores stock beautiful hand selected brands coupled with a bespoke personal shopping experience. OLIAMI is a beacon of timeless and sophisticated slow fashion and our team enjoy nothing more than fitting our customers with key wardrobe staples as well as stylish one-off wardrobe extras! We believe in doing the simple things brilliantly. From a sincere greeting and creating just the right outfit for you, to perfecting your capsule wardrobe with the finest staple items. It’s the detail that really stays with you.

Founder / Fashionista

Nadia Alexander

It started with a dream and a self-confessed shopaholic - Nadia Alexander. With a history of providing high-end luxury service within the leisure & retail industry, in late 2020 Nadia Alexander opened her first boutique. From the use of her darling girls’ names to create the brand name, to her attention to detail when selecting which brands will be sold, Nadia is all that OLIAMI encompasses.


OLIAMI has been born out of Nadia’s passion for helping to empower others and to create a capsule wardrobe with timeless, investment pieces. Tune into one of her legendary ‘Lives’ on Facebook to learn from the master of fashion either to select a statement piece or to build your capsule wardrobe.

Graham Cunningham

OPERATIONS MANAGER

Graham loves nothing more than a spreadsheet that reconciles! Often found pouring over the numbers to solve our problems, Graham keeps us all in check and the operation ship shape! One way to win Graham over when we have messed up our spreadsheets is to bring him in some homemade chocolate cake!

Kirsty MacNiven

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT EXECUTIVE

Kirsty is our very own ‘pocket rocket’ and has boundless energy, keeping the team upbeat and ready for anything! After starting as a Sales Associate with Nadia in 2017, Kirsty lives and breathes fashion and design and is fully immersed in all things OLIAMI. A penchant for tartan, Kirsty can regularly be found wining and dining in Scotland’s best hangouts!

Scott Wilson

MULTI-STORE MANAGER

Scott has spent his lifetime working in fashion. Starting in the 80s in Valentino’s, a move to Glasgow saw Scott become one of the integral pioneers of what has now become known as ‘Streetwear’. In 1996 Scott moved to Manifesto, where he stayed until 2021 – when Nadia finally brought him on board to run the retail side of OLIAMI.
