Her love affair with the world of fashion and celebrities started in her childhood. She always knew that she would become a fashion designer and illustrator. Opting to stay close to the LA fashion scene and Hollywood celebrities, she studied fashion design at Esmod International Fashion University. Fashion was something that came natural to Oula. She began drawing and making dresses for her Barbie doll at the age of three.

She worked as a fashion designer at YanaK Fashion Group, Michael Costello Couture and Stello honing her skills in evening wear design.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It has not been a smooth road. There are always struggles and it is always a hustle in the fashion world.!

Breaking into the fashion industry is tough.

It’s an extremely competitive world where cool creatives and sassy strategists have to work together to keep up with trends.

I have been working day and night to make things happen.it’s definitely not an easy road,

Many times people have laughed at my dreams and tried to discourage my dreams.

I never thought I would be where I’m at right now. But I made it here and I’m proud and I’m constantly working harder to get better.

My advice for young women coming into this industry is : “Never give up on your dreams!” and “Follow your passion!” and “Refuse to give up!” “Believe in yourself and your dreams.!”

This advice suggests that if you work hard enough, and want something badly enough, and focus on it diligently enough.then you can turn your fantasy in to reality.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Oulalala story. Tell us more about the business.

So much of the media coverage is focused on the challenges facing women today, but what about the opportunities? Do you feel there are any opportunities that women are particularly well positioned for?
As social media becomes a more integrated part of our lives.there are many opportunities for women today on social media. I have been inspired by many women on social media. It gives us an opportunity to learn from one another share stories and experiences. I believe every woman can create the kind of life she wishes to have.

Do you feel like there was something about the experiences you had growing up that played an outsized role in setting you up for success later in life?
My love affair with the world of fashion and celebrities started in my childhood. I always knew that I would become a fashion designer and illustrator. Opting to stay close to the LA fashion scene and Hollywood celebrities, I studied fashion design at Esmod International Fashion University.

Fashion was something that came natural to me. I began drawing and making dresses for my Barbie doll at the age of three.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
All I have to do is make things work for me in a career and try to become lucky. I believe that I make my own luck in life. Luck has a significant role in my life either a positive or negative way. “ The harder I work, the luckier I get”. This is a very famous saying said by Abraham Lincoln, the most successful president of The United States of America. Here in this, he means that luck always favours the hardworking people. Always expect luck to favour you after doing hard work.
