Incorporating this balance is Hawatmeh’s claim to fame, her compassion, along with her unpredictability and completely unique designs. Hawatmeh believes that fashion should be fun, free and individual and she doesn’t disappoint with her flair for the unexpected and disdain for following trends in her own line. ​ The rich colors and textures of traditional Lebanese art, clothing and culture helped to mold Ola’s affinity for bright, bold colors, unique pattern making and keen eye for detail and quality. “I am inspired by different cultures, my hometown of New York City and the bright lights. When people wear my designs, I want them to close their eyes and dream of different cultures, bold, lovely colors and people singing in the rain,” Ola shares. While her designs focus on women ages 18-35, some of her more classically styled evening gowns, evening wear and cocktail dresses are fitting for women of all ages and sizes. She designs remarkably tailored, custom menswear as well, including suits, t shirts, and slacks.

Her name brand eyewear accessories are now found online. Ola Style Studio is located in Clayton, Missouri, and her designs can be found in stores such as Macy’s at the South County Center.

Deriving inspiration from international travel, various cultures, even fabrics and patterns, she explains, “I design for women and men who are trend setters looking for a one of a kind piece, whether it be a suit, a jumper, or a dress or t-shirt. My pieces are typically designed for special events, and meant to make a statement.” Ola Style’s latest is rocking the runways all over the place with her with vibrant fabrics, fun spring dresses, prom styles, formal wear, and accessories. She is a force of reckoning on the fashion scene in St. Louis, NYC, Los Angeles and many more sites to be seen!

Her signature Ola Style name brand sunglasses are unisex, in aviator style, & large-framed styles and just a few of her designs to come. Hawatmeh devotedly worked with an international team of designers, manufacturers and engineers to create these UVA & UVB polarized lenses in several different styles to compliment different tastes and likes – fit for a rock star, soccer mom or anyone wanting to rock their sunglasses in high style.​

MOM ME MAKEOVER
Known for her eclectic, dynamic clothing designs that have graced the runways of New York, Kansas City and Los Angeles, as a rising star on the fashion scene in St. Louis, Missouri, fashion designer and personal stylist Ola Hawatmeh has grown to become a leader in the world of entrepreneurialism, and an inspirational force making a difference for women of all ages.

While she focuses a great deal of time, energy and talent on creating trend-shattering fashions for women and men, one of her greatest loves and gifts is personal styling. Serving a diverse client base including A-list celebrities, Mothers, doctors, politicians, athletes and everyone in between, Hawatmeh founded Ola Style on the heels of success in another venture, Mom Me Makeover – a personal styling company providing inside-out makeovers focused on Mothers to help them feel more confident about themselves.

It was this venture that shaped and grounded her compassion for others, and the belief that self image is a powerful factor in a person’s confidence level and sense of self – crucial to personal success – and took her personal styling for Mom Me Makeover to a brand new level by packaging her various styling services and seeking out partners like hair stylist Brandon Bayer, Ginger Bahr, Aveda Salons and more, to develop a full scale personal styling business, customizing services to the individual or event. Ola’s styling services can either be crafted to enhance or update a current look head to toe, or she can take an existing look and provide a total transformation of her client’s overall image and style. With her extensive knowledge of body types, fabrics, tailoring, brands and looks for all occasions she brings the gift of glam with an edge that is all her own. Hawatmeh believes that fashion should be fun, free and individual and she doesn’t disappoint with her flair for the unexpected and disdain for following trends in her own line.

  1. I saw you listed in the Small Business Monthly magazine as one of St. Louis’ top women business owners. Congratulations! As a father of three daughters, I appreciate and admire women who are successful.
    I’m contacting you as a Financial Advisor to see if you would be interested in tax-free Missouri muni-bonds. Rates are low now, but when rates rise to 4-5%, I could let you know what is available.
    Let me know if you are interested.
    Thank you,
    Steve Biermann

  2. Hello, I am a model for Kansas City Fashion Week and Teisha emailed me a few nights ago asking me if I would model for you. I am more than happy to model on Saturday, but I was wondering when the rehearsal and fitting will be. I look forward to hearing from you!

  3. Hey, I was hoping to model for you 🙂

    I met you at the Empire Hotel last week during your fashion show and loved your work! I was the only transgender person there (I think).

  4. Super excited to be modeling for you this month… A phenomenal opportunity to do what I love and for all of us to join and give back to our community! Thanks!
