She has a degree in womenswear fashion designer. Later on, she moved to Milan and in 2008 she got her master’s degree in Fashion Styling at Istituto Marangoni. Her works have always been inspired by gothic moods, and her passion for black dresses earned her the nickname of “Dark Lady” during her studies.

Her eponymous brand, YAKUBoWITCH, aims at creating “Perfect Black Dresses for Every Occasion”. In the past five years Olga created more than 60 different total-black outfits: despite the numerous and varied sources of inspiration, her style draws heavily on the 1950s fashion. 

The choice of black colour clearly represents Olga’s strong belief in its all-in-one power. All steps of the creating process are conceived as a search for the perfect fit: a ready-to-wear piece, the YAKUBoWITCH dress is always meant to be the final choice for those who buy it, the perfect answer to anyone’s “what should I wear this time?” question.
