You will leave with all the knowledge you need to make a panty whenever you want, along with a fully finished pair! *Note – please be able to thread a machine and sew simple seams before signing up for this project–based class.
About Lola Haze TM Designer, Laura Mehlinger: Designer Laura Mehlinger has been studying, designing and making clothing since the time she could hold a needle & thread. Laura received her BA from Harvard in English, where she was dubbed “Harvard’s Ace Student of Fashion” for creating and showing her own line of women’s wear in the only one-person fashion show there in memory. After holding design positions at Gap, Inc, Laura decided to go out on her own. She named her line after the famous temptress Dolores “Lolita” Haze from Nabokov’s Lolita, which she wrote her thesis about and which continues to intrigue and inspire her. On a year-long solo trip around the world, Laura carefully collected exotic objects, fabrics and stories. These inspiring visuals coupled with the ideas of difference, quirkiness and elements of surprise are driven into her designs:
“Design is molding juxtapositions: elegance and kitsch, innocence and seduction, playfulness and sophistication, and for Lola Haze™, public and private. I love lingerie because it dances between public and private domains. It can be a woman’s own secret that makes her feel special, or something beautiful for display. Lola Haze™ is for a playful, confident woman who loves the transformative power of clothing and dresses for no one but herself. She can wear Lola Haze™ as innerwear, loungewear, or outerwear.”– Laura Mehlinger
