Rucht D'Oleo-Schwartz

Rucht D’Oleo graduated at the top of her class with a diploma in fashion design at Instituto Tecnologico Mercy Jacquez in her home, Dominican Republic. She worked as a fashion designer for high-end clients, giving her the opportunity to create original collections and earn experience in a cutthroat field of the industry. She won several competitions and her designs were featured in numerous fashion shows and published in several newspapers. In 2001, Rucht set out for a new opportunity in Miami, Florida where she graduated with honors from Miami International University of Art and Design. Her first collection consisted of all one-of-a-kind pieces made with carefully chosen natural materials such as linen, cotton, and silk. In that same year, she was named Best New Fashion Designer in Miami and in 2009, she received the Key to Miami Dade County from Mayor Carlos Alvarez. She was invited to be one of nine judges for the international Fashion Designers contest, ŁÓDŹ YOUNG FASHION 2017, and also spoke at the International Fashion Symposium held in Kingston, Jamaica. D’Oleo’s designs have been published in local magazines & newspapers and she has also written and published a book in Spanish about the business of fashion called “ El Negocio de la Moda.” In June 2016, D’Oleo founded The Fashion Institute of South Florida, a fashion school that was conceived to give creative individuals the opportunity to launch a career in the fashion industry without paying the high cost of traditional colleges. The Fashion Institute of South Florida is licensed by the Commission of Independent Education in Florida.
