Mery and Lola, at the 1st collection shoot!
This is a story about Lola (mum), and Maria (daughter), who decided to create this joint venture together after long (the former) and not so long (the latter) careers in fashion and a few plot twists, (just like every good story).
Lola’s background is designer and creative director at her own brand, fashion consultant and shop owner. Basically, Lola has lived and breathed fashion since forever. Her friends and clients always turn to Lola for styling advice or even help with planning a memorable event. Everything that Lola gets involved with is well thought, albeit crazy, beautiful, and with the utmost attention to detail.
Maria’s fashion experience actually starts at the age of 6, when Lola placed her at the top of the stairs at her 1st shop and asked her to “check if clients steal any garment”! Whole Saturdays were spent on those stairs (never once did she catch a client stealing of course and once she was allowed to go and watch Ghost Busters, which she didn’t like, but that’s another story…). Then it was a different shop at a different age, but during her uni years, Maria once again, worked on Saturdays at Lola’s clothing boutique in order to finance her studies (read: partying in Madrid, skiing trips in Sierra Nevada and summer holidays in Ibiza). After uni it was a few years of consulting, banking, boring project management etc. when, whilst living in London, she decided the finance world was not for her and started to work for luxury fashion brands in Retail Operations and Wholesale, which she enjoyed very much and consolidated her love for fashion and customer service.
After Maria moving to Frankfurt and being inspired by a floaty gingham dress catching so much attention every time she wore it, she decided to give this crazy dream a go with Lola. Together (it couldn’t be otherwise) they find inspiration, look for suppliers, design and produce with enthusiasm galore all the beautiful garments you can find in this web. They really hope it brings you so much joy as it brings them!
Currently, they work remotely and from their own houses in Madrid and Frankfurt, to bring you your fashion and lifestyle gingham fix!
