Lizzy Lahive – Founder of LAHIVE
In order to use social media effectively,
you also have to advertise for sure!
Lizzy Lahive created her namesake collection in honor of the many strong women in her life. As an FIT graduate, she worked in major design houses in NY before life took her to Los Angeles. After she had kids, Lizzy found that she wasn’t putting the time into making herself look and feel good. She wanted to ignite that sexy, confident woman inside of her again, and so she started designing and making clothes for herself. As friends and acquaintances started making requests for her pieces, she began creating her own label to help light that same fire within all the women in her life. Lizzy launched that first LAHIVE capsule collection in Fall 2017 and hasn’t looked back since. High-quality materials and construction are her top priorities and passions. Lizzy is constantly working to ethically source luxury fabrications and details that look great and feel great against your skin. 35% of her materials are custom printed or ordered from Europe, and the rest is sourced from deadstock, the remaining fabric from major houses that would otherwise end up in landfills. She is committed to reusing materials (even from our own past seasons) to continue to be a part of the solution to better our planet. Every piece in the LAHIVE collection is designed in LA and made in LA. Lizzy is proud to be a part of the local industry and support the workers that help make her company possible. She considers her network of pattern-makers, cutters, sewers, suppliers, and factories as friends and makes sure to only work with those who provide fair working conditions and wages for their employees. LAHIVE has grown as a favorite amongst celebrities and fashion insiders. Whether worn on the red carpet or to an intimate dinner party, the LAHIVE label has become synonymous with quality, statement pieces that flatter figures of all sizes.
Tiffany Herrmann – CEO of Sheree Cosmetics
There is a lot of failure before you get to success!
Tiffany Sheree Herrmann is Founder and CEO of Sheree Cosmetics. She has been a cosmetic lover since the young age of 6 when she was caught borrowing her mother’s make-up. Her dream has been to create her own cosmetic line and she realized she could create her own formula with amazing pigmentation, all natural, cruelty free, paraben-free, all with a luxury feel. And, it could be done without charging an extreme price-tag. After ten months of developing her own liquid lipstick formula, in partnership with chemists and a cosmetic lab, her dream came true. Sheree Cosmetics was born. The business is family-owned and the formula is unique, one-of-a-kind, smudge resistant, transfer resistant, feather light, and cruelty free.
