Originally from Indonesia, Juliana has always had a real passion for the fashion business and it was her dream to become a designer since she was a little girl. She grew up around the fashion and clothing industry and her passion and knowledge grew as she helped with her mum’s business, a clothing manufacturer in Indonesia which deals with some major distributors and retailers across the country.
After taking her Business & Marketing degree in Seattle, Juliana decided to move to the UK and follow her dream of succeeding in the fashion industry. Here she enlisted the support of business partner Desmond Wong who, over the last few years has left no stone unturned in building the wholesale for the brand.
Almost Famous was set up by designer Juliana Oei and business partner Desmond Wong in August 2002, when Juliana won the much coveted Prince’s Trust Award.
