Their activities at the fashion schools throughout the nineties until 2011 have involved pioneering innovations in the field of fashion as they have encouraged professional development and enhanced job placement opportunities for fashion designers, stylists, and costume makers who have been successful to date. Over the years, they have also worked for several companies as freelancers, as fashion designers, stylists, pattern makers or buyers.

In 2003 they jointly ventured their studio of modern Couture, which they have been growing to date. What distinguishes their collections is a silent force. The designers want their clothes to "look" classic without being so and they emphasize eccentric details.

Along with each new collection of prêt a porter pieces, the DYFOs have created clothes and wedding dresses of Haute Couture which embrace and emphasize the individual image of each woman, styling each and every detail of the appearance.
