Early life, Education
Swarbrick was born in Auckland in 1994, and went to Epsom Girls’ Grammar School. She entered the University of Auckland at age 17, and graduated with a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy.
In 2012, Swarbrick opened her first business, a New Zealand-made fashion label called The Lucid Collective, with Alex Bartley Catt. Around the same time, she began working in the newsroom at the student radio station 95bFM as a news writer and news reader, before becoming a producer and eventually host of The Wire. In April 2016, she resigned from her position as a regular host.
In 2014, Swarbrick began writing for What’s Good magazine. She became editor, and an owner. Later that year, The Lucid Collective held a New Zealand Fashion Week side-show at the Gow Langsford Gallery and participated in the “Youthquake” exhibition at the New Zealand Fashion Museum. The label went on to be stocked across Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch, before Swarbrick and Bartley Catt closed the business.
Swarbrick began The Goods, an offshoot of What’s Good, in late 2015. The project opened a pop-up store in St Kevin’s Arcade on Karangahape Road. Swarbrick won a New Zealander of the Year Local Hero Award.
In 2016, Swarbrick and Bartley Catt started a digital consultancy and artist management agency called TIPS. The pair also opened a cafe and gallery, Olly, next to the Crystal Palace theatre in Mount Eden.

An article in the New York Times calls the phenomenon “OK boomer” a “war cry for millions of fed up children.” T-shirts and sweatshirts with the phrase have appeared on online marketing sites.
Chloe Swarbrick Policy
“Mr. President, how many world leaders, for how many decades they have seen and known what is coming, but they have decided that it is more politically convenient to keep it behind closed doors. My generation and generations after me do not have that luxury,” she said. “In the year 2050, I will be 56 years old. However, at this time, the average age of this 52nd Parliament is 49 years.”
It was then that they interrupted her about her age, which led her to respond: “OK, boomer” without losing the rhythm, according to the video of Parliament’s speech. In the video, a man sitting behind her laughs at his contempt.
