WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME LOLA N LULU?
Lola is my daughter and Lulu is her doll they are best friends, Lulu was made for her when she was 2 and kept Lola brave when she would do new things. Their daily life was like an adventure "Lola & Lulu".
HOW DID YOU START YOUR COMPANY?
Fashion has always been a passion of mine, I got very involved in how clothing was made and reading stories of child slavery in the work force, one story in particular hit me very hard. I knew I never wanted to put clothing on my children that were made by children, slave labor. So we dug a little deeper and made sure our brands were ethically made. I started my company with two brands out of our house and we grew into a brick and mortar and online store with more brands than I can count.
WHO ARE THE PEOPLE BEHIND LOLA N LULU?
I work with my two daughters, Lola 9 and Violet 3.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT KIDS FASHION?
I love the small collections that tell a story, I love meeting the maker / designer behind each collection. Knowing these pieces were created with purpose and for our children.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT ODP?
I love that it's a Woman behind this brand. The styles are unique and fun but very wearable for everyday. I love that it's a brand children will reach for, the patterns are fun and the fabrics are soft.
FUN FACT 1
I let Lola write her very own order at a show at 5, it was our first sell through. Since then, she does a lot of our ordering.
FUN FACT 2
Before Lola n Lulu I started a handmade custom dress company. I always enjoyed creating / sewing the first dress but not the same one twice. It got so busy it took me away from Lola & my husband. It got bigger than me and I stepped away, I still miss the creating.
