I’ve been sewing and designing since I was ten years old, always mesmerized by the whir of my mom’s sewing machine and the scraps of fabric she left behind. I started off by designing my own homecoming and prom dresses, and by putting my friends in my newest dresses, but I was always thinking ahead, wanting to bring my pieces to a wider audience. My father is a professor at FSU, and when I was 12 I had a booth at the college outdoor market where I sold purses I sewed out of denim and hand-embellished beaded designs. This was my first experience with entrepreneurship, and I was hooked!
I have been drawn to bright colors, bold prints, and tropical fashions for as long as I can remember. I have a love affair with the sun and ocean, so I am definitely moved by easy and flowy silhouettes, a peek (or maybe more) of skin, always keeping it sexy and feminine. My brand name, Ola Moon, was a stroke of genius given to me by my sister. Ola means wave in Spanish, and of course there is the play on the word hello as well. The name evokes both the exotic, sensual vibes that my pieces are inspired by, along with a girly sense of fun. Our clothes are perfect for transitions and use in a day or night setting and the brand’s images of the ocean wave and moon seem to fit this all in! We want you to feel comfortable lounging by the pool in one of our designs, or throw on heels and chandelier earrings later and be a showstopper at a wedding or gala. The pieces are effortless to wear and the fabrics are varied and unique, promising that every women can find something to her taste. We want the Ola Moon woman to feel beautiful, to feel on vacation, to turn heads!
