Creator of Lolita
Lolita started her career in the fashion industry working for Christian Dior and Donna Karan after graduating with honors from Mary Baldwin College in Virginia with a double major in Marketing and Fine Arts. As a student, Lolita nurtured her love of creativity, entrepreneurship and business. As a designer, she sees something quite extraordinary in everyday life. She injects her energy and charm into her designs, and is always monitoring trends, colors, textures and attitudes of the European runways – something she learned from the fashion industry.
Lolita glassware started with a girls' night out with her good friends. While browsing through the martini menu, Lolita was inspired by the recipes. Her creative imagination made her see the glass differently - more dressed up with a pattern, flair and a fabulous recipe on the bottom. She watched each of her friends order a distinct martini that reflected their personalities. This was the inspiration for her "Love My Martini™" collection that she began in 2001. Today, her successful brand has grown into one of the most popular gift brands for celebrating moments with friends and family.
