Description de l'entreprise

4 partners, 1 passion. LolaLiza developed from a desire to indulge women of all ages with affordable fashion. Which is how a 100% Belgian family-owned company that exudes a pure lust for life came into being. How it became a brand that is constantly evolving and developing. That inspires women in a whole range of countries to dare to be who they really want to be. Sexy, comfy, elegant or simply extra festive – LolaLiza knows who women are and what they need. For both those everyday times and special moments. For work and leisure alike. For their daughters, their girlfriends, mothers-in-law and work colleagues. For their feeling of style or keen eye for detail. For women who love life and who enjoy stepping out with their friends. Because women are multi-faceted, intriguing and unbelievably close to one another. And that’s something to be celebrated and seen!
