ChadiaAlameddin, proprietress of Betinnis Fashions, inspirational philanthropist and award winning stylist, has been recognized as one of Orange County’s finest charity advocates. A visionary with a passion for fashion and life motto – To Live To Give – Betinnis has earned the spotlight being voted the top five “Best Boutiques in Orange County” by My Fox LA. At the age of eight, Alameddin gained early experience helping her parents run several department stores in Latin America.

After high school, Chadia moved to the United States to pursue her education in Business Management and Communications, while still continuing to work in retail. In 2005 raising a young family with her husband, Chadia launched her first e commerce store. The online reception inspired her to introduce new international designers by producing fashion shows. Coupled with this success and her desire to connect with customers, Betinnis opened in 2008. Her exceptional personal service, sincerity and desire to give back to the community has earned her a loyal clientele. “I’m very proud of my staff, “ says Alameddin, “we take great joy in investing in our clients bringing them the latest and trendiest fashions and strive to offer the best one on one personal styling service.” Last year, Chadia was elected as vice-chair of the Orange County Fashion Council due to her vision, integrity and five star retail service. Her philanthropic nature led the fashion community to inaugurate the first “Fashion Responsible Awards” recognizing designers who give back to worldly causes at this year’s OC Fashion Week. “We are so proud to have ChadiaAlameddin as one of our most inspirational role models,” says Kathryn Marino founder of the OC Fashion Council. “We know the future of Orange County Fashion Week is about to change every time we see Chadia smile. There is a new idea budding from her that is about to launch and we can hardly wait.”
