We had the good fortune of connecting with Oula Oussi and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Oula, what makes you happy? Why?
What makes me happy is fashion.I’ve always used my creativity to pull myself out of tough times.it’s great to do what you love this is really one happiest times for me. I am actually quite happy now designing for myself and for other brands.I guess being a designer is a very creative opportunity to turn a simple sketch into reality-to create “something from nothing”. As the saying goes,the fashion industry is built on the stuff of dreams. Fashion can reflect who I am.it’s another way to communicate. Fashion gives me endless ways to be creative. It might be hard to imagine the association between clothes and happiness. Smiling is the best way to start a happy successful road.How you dress and what color you wear is going to impact your day. Look at your wardrobe and choose what is perfect for your day.Remember colors can make us feel happy or sad,and they can make us feel hungry or relaxed. If you feel sad or depressed,wear pastel colors like peach,light pink or lilac.It will definitely help you lift your spirit as you also inspire others with this positive wave.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a fashion designer,specialized in women’s evening wear.the attention to design details,with an array of unique fabrics. Oulalala is a global label that embodies a sensual, sophisticated lifestyle. My goal is to foster an ongoing relationship with my clients and dress them for all their memorable life occasions. I have learnt that it’s not as easy as many people think, because even when we have many ideas; we have to prove our capabilities,having taken a long time to start a career in design. it’s definitely not an easy road. There are always struggles and it is always a hustle in the fashion world.! It’s an extremely competitive world where cool creatives and sassy strategists have to work together to keep up with trends. 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. I want the world to know about “Oulalala” has all chic styles you need.always defining fashion’s next stride forward.Designed for the confident,sexy, modern woman,Oulalala is a global label that embodies a sensual, sophisticated lifestyle.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Los Angeles is known for many things: the entertainment industry, expansive beaches, a great culinary scene and a renowned nightlife. One cannot separate fashion from Los Angeles.Home to Hollywood and celebrities and fashionistas,the Southern California city is the vogue capital of the states.Beverly Hills is known around the world as one of the most fashionable places to shop. In the heart of it all sits Rodeo Drive with so many dining options one of my favorites, the rooftop by JG in Beverly Hills, unforgettable views and dedicated bites. And from Beverly Hills and fashion life let’s go to West Hollywood. West Hollywood may be known for its glitzy celebrity hotspots, one of the top modern hot spots I really love “Ysabel” it’s full of somewhat important fashion,lifestyle, and that sort of thing. good food to be enjoyed and a perfect Olivia cocktail can’t stop yourselves from having. And let’s go to one of my favorite places Venice Canals Just a stone’s throw from Venice Beach you can go for peaceful waterside strolls, cross charming little footbridges and spot ducklings in the water in summer.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I grew up dreaming of success in the fashion industry, Breaking into the fashion industry was tough.I have been working day and night to make things happen. Through hard work I gain experience; it helped me discover many new things. The most important factor behind my success is my passion and love for the world of fashion. I have always believed in myself and my dreams. Fashion was something that came natural to Oulalala. Reading is a powerful daily habit that can mean the difference between success and mediocrity. It’s a discipline that helps winning individuals push harder, further,and faster one of my favorite books I have inspired by her story is Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco Chanel” She was undoubtedly a strong,independent woman who built a fashion empire entirely on her own. Her story turned Oulalala from a little sweet girl to a strong independent woman all I had to do is believe that I’m going to be successful,then I’m already half way there. Her story is about much more than designing fashion. She fled the monastery she grew up at and pursued a free life without “do’s and don’ts. Freedom and independence meant the world to her. I have learned all kinds of things from my many mistakes. Mistakes have the power to turn me into something better than I was before. Let’s be honest,no one likes to make mistakes,and lose their time and money an effort to learn from things. one of my favorite saying said by “Oprah Winfrey” “Think like a queen,a queen is not afraid of fail, failure is another stepping stone to crestness.”
