Ola Style by Ola Hawatmeh's motto is "see all fashion, hear all fashion, speak all fashion".

Hawatmeh is an entrepreneur (not your average mom!) and founder of fashion company Ola Style in which she creates beautiful couture gowns.

She designs for women who have an urge towards self-expressionism, creativity and a desire to stand out. No shrinking violets here. "My designs are made for women who are trendy and not afraid to express themselves with unique fabrics and colors that are edgy, yet classy," she says. "I like things that are different, out of the box. Clothes that make you feel beautiful, confident and special."

In addition she is founder of "Mom Me Makeover", a company to assist mothers in feeling more confident about themselves so that they can pass this self-belief and assurance on to their children.


Yoonheek & Dhan's couture high fashion and couture label has been described as minimal & futuristic with a sophisticated architectural feel.

Yoonhee Joe is a Fashion Institute of Technology Graduate with years of experience in designing for her name sake label Yoonheek. Dahn Duangkamol graduated from Fashion Institute of Technology and worked at Victor de Souza. She currently develops her own line, Dahn.Duangkamol.

The pair joined forces to create Yoonheek & Dhan, a collection borne out of their love for Frank O. Gehry's post modern architectures and minimizing decorative small details. Their label is attracting plenty of attention for its well thought-out structured, razor-sharp take on minimalism. The pair was inspired by color blocking, as a cold geometrical abstract painting. They create structurally interesting shapes by adding asymmetrical cutting lines and unusual neck, sleeves and bottom hem construction.

Universally flattering for almost all skin tones and so unique in combination with white, the look's main colors are pale pink, beige and only small portions of color as highlights).


"Fashion has been a fundamental part of my life", says Bertha Alicia Astor. "Design, sewing and making clothes it's a passion and an obsession."

"Obradoiro de Moda" translates to "Fashion Atelier" in Galician language and was created with an outlook on easy, fashionable, couture pieces. Chic and classic to the average woman and extremely versatile, it was inspired by 1950's with contemporary twist. The silhouette on these amazing dresses are for those women who appreciate effortless style with a contemporary, unique, design edge.

"Obradoiro de Moda" symbolizes the woman of today with the classic look that is characterized by an elegant woman, combined with a focus on producing the perfect cut to create a chic aesthetic.
