While these accessories are often listed as out of stock on her website, don’t let that fool you because they’ve been featured at Macy’s in the past too, and with no surprise as to why. I wanted to take some time to write up a review of my experiences with the brand, and its founder.
I met the fabulous designer of the above sturdy & stylish shades on a radio show a while ago, and we’ve since then forged what I consider to be a strong friendship. The first time I stepped foot in her studio, I was amazed with all that she had accomplished for herself in life. This woman is so driven that she wouldn’t even let battling cancer stop her from receiving top women in business awards! This year Ola has devoted herself to the production of Ola Survivor Fashion Week, in which breast cancer survivors will be enlisted to walk the runaway in pink & white to help further the awareness and raise funds, of which will be distributed back to the Komen Foundation
She’s always been very kind towards me, as beautiful inside as she is out, and when I arrived at her studio office with my laptop ready to go to work taking notes from her, I found myself in complete awe of her abilities! Her amazing designs and bold sense of style, her work ethic, and her determination and passion for making a positive difference in the lives of others, all of it has made an impact on me as someone who desires to be successful too.
There’s a phrase I’ve heard said often by motivational speakers, and maybe you’ve heard it too, that if you want to be a success, then you have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone and surround yourself around successful people. I can say after being in the company of Ola Hawatmeh, that I’ve found such advice to be sound.
Ola designs for both men and women as she markets her brand name collections consisting of eyewear, swimwear, evening & wedding gowns. She has and continues to attend numerous Fashion Week events as part of her glamorous niche shown in her blog. While doing all this, she also manages to take the time and make the effort to encourage and help others of all ages, from a friend of kids with cancer, to styling and providing makeover services for military moms on Mother’s Day, Ola has and continues to go out of her way to bring joy to others every single day.
Her brand products are a hot commodity in high demand and selling faster than they’re able to be stocked. Learn more about what’s in store for this stylist of the stars and don’t be too shy to say hello to her on twitter! Stay tuned because I think you’re going to be pleasantly surprised by the impact of her next big gesture!
