Valentina has had a passion for design for as long as she can remember. She initially pursued architecture while working for one of the nation's largest linen rental companies where she was expo- sed to a variety of events types, corporate and social. After working with clients who required specifically curated designs for their various event atmospheres, Valentina was intro- duced to and worked with global textile mills and realized that her true passion was in textiles and patterns. She shifted her focus from architecture to business and graduated from DePaul University with a Bachelor's degree in Busi- ness Administration in 2015. Valentina is the Founder of Lola Valentina, a Chicago and Na- tionwide based creative studio dedicated to the development and production of custom made and collection driven patterns printed on a variety of textiles such as table overlays and glass. She works one- on-one with her clients to design and produce custom patterns for events large and small. Her ultima- te goal is to incorporate her designs within the interior design industry and continue discovering ways to assist her clients in defining the look of their favorite spaces. Valentina is a member of WIPA (Wedding International Professio- nals Association) and has styled events for Kehoe Designs, Rafa- nelli Events, Ron Wendt Designs, Epic Events and Jes Gordon.
