Couture for a Cure is the finale of the WWS fashion show, and is the brainchild of fashion designer Isaac Spry and
Catwalk Productions CEO Randi Layne. They collaborated to bring together a collection of Atlanta couture designers
who have a personal connection to cancer prevention. This diverse group of designers—showcasing everything from
classic to avant garde styles—have generously offered to make special pieces for WWS and give proceeds from the
auction of these pieces to Northside Hospital's Cancer Institute.


  Isaac Spry


The “Couture for a Cure” section of the WWS Atlanta fashion show was conceptualized by Isaac Spry and Randi Layne from Catwalk Productions. 
Isaac, a native of the low country in South Carolina, has been designing since 1995. His hobby became a reality in 2008 when he left his corporate IT job and enrolled in Bauder College to study fashion design. After the start of his career
he has had the pleasure of working with Tyler Perry productions, Devious Maids (Lifetime television), and The Walking Dead seasons 3 & 4. Isaac’s mother passed away at age 31 from cancer. Knowing that he has an opportunity to aid
in the cure of cancer fills his heart with joy.

  David Ojeda2


David Ojeda is an example of what happens when science meets art: beautiful purpose. His love for both subjects along with the death of his father to lymphatic cancer has compelled him to be a part of Wine Women and Shoes. “Talent needs to have a purpose”, he says. “Talent and knowledge, without purpose, is just an empty vessel, pretty but of little or no use.” It is in his design work and other creative endeavors thru Amphorae Creative Services, LLC, that David finds a
way to travel to a world of endless possibilities and a reason to continue striving. Please visit,

With a background steeped in high fashion and World Couture glamour, Therez Fleetwood designs exceptionally made and sharply edited apparel for the modern woman. Her focus on feminine silhouettes, intricate construction, and that perfect detail is evidenced in her signature hand-beaded dress and body-sculpting silhouettes.
