Ou Ma is a fashion designer based in New York City. She had been working at Ralph Lauren Women’s Collection and Calvin Klein Made-to-Measure Atelier after graduated from Fashion Institute of Technology. 

She is now focusing on customized wedding designs and special occasion dresses for private clients.   

To Ou, fashion is not just about storytelling – it is more about a style that reflects life. Organic, feminine, and comfortable – these are the core spirits in Ou’s designs, which combine with the intricate touch of sophistication, chic, and modern. Ou showcased her capsule collections in New York Fashion Week on September, 2014 and February, 2015. Her collection ‘Untouchable’ has been featured in Vogue Italia September Issue ‘New Generation of Fashion Designers.’ It was also published in Fashion Portfolio by Anna Kiper and displayed in ENK Intermezzo Tradeshow in 2014.
