Lola van Praag (1992, Amsterdam, Netherlands) is a Dutch textile and fashion designer based in Leiden. She followed two master's degrees. One in textile design at the Swedish School of Textiles (Borås, Sweden) where she focused on industrial knitting and printing techniques and a second in fashion design at the University of Westminster (London, UK) with a specialization in menswear. After graduating she moved back to the Netherlands where she started her own studio.
Lola's love for creating does not lie in producing an end product, but mainly in the process that precedes it. She likes to experiment with materials in order to discover their hidden potential. She is very curious about different craft techniques and how these methods can be applied in a contemporary way. Because of her often unorthodox methods in which manual and mechanical merge, surprising results are achieved.
She combines these technical elaborations with idiosyncratic color combinations and a preference for glitter. She brings all this together in a series of different creative excesses, from fashion collection to wall objects.
