About Me

As of April 2011 I have moved to China. I am teaching English but please don't fear the death of Yola, I have big plans for Yola! Design is my passion so please be patient, I'm working toward a comeback in spring 2012. I'm working with a new business partner here in Hangzhou, she is a wonderful, talented professional and is helping to take pressure off of me in some aspects of the business so that I can focus more on designing. The transition from one woman show to a partnership is positive change although to be honest, letting go of some of the control is a little scary too!

Thank you to everyone who has offered support over the few years that Yola has been around, I hope to continue inspiring others and being inspired by others!

See you again soon!


I consider myself a new designer even though I've been designing for a couple years, at least. There's just too much learn to ever expect to be called an expert!!

I worked under my name for about a year, however this past summer I officially registered my business, Yola Couture, and I am finally making my way into the world of ready-to-wear fashion with a very small skirt collection (end of Sept. 2010) that will be followed by a spring/summer dress collection at the end of February 2011.

I really love to work with photographers with different visions, my designs are often labeled "quirky" or "edgy" and so I like the overall presentation of my work to remain "outside the box" so to speak.

This goes for the models I work with as well. You'll notice from my profile that if I like your contribution to the photos and I just plain like you, we'll work together again and again. Elle, the beautiful red head you see throughout my portfolio has been doing work with me going on two years. Don't let that intimidate you, I would love the opportunity to work with other talented models as well.

Same goes for photographers, Maria Kuzmina's work dominates my portfolio but I have worked with other talented photographers and look forward to working with many more!

Interested in TF* shoots
