"Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl..." the Lyrics blasted from her pink boom box from the Sears catalog. Lola Staar,
shimmied her seven-year-old body into her favorite fringed flapper dress from
the dress up chest. With a determined gleam in her eye, she pulled on her pompom
footies and laced her roller skates tightly to her feet. Then, Lola began to
skate. Unbeknownst to the world above, this basement showgirl was hard at work.
the metal wheels of her roller skates became a shiny blur as she passed again
and again the dress-up chest, ping pong table, the hot water heater and around
again. She could feel her heart pounding in her chest.....Lola knew, she always
knew, one day she would be a star.
As Lola Staar grew, her dreams changed course
but she always revered the profound truth in those boom-box-dress-up-daydreams.
In 1991 Lola dreamt her fabulous tee shirt line into existence. This dream
was born out of the magical thumping techno bass of abandoned warehouse
Detroit where Lola first sold her glittering line of tees. The dream of creating
empowering clothing with the same sense of dreaming as the fringed flapper
dress from the dress up chest brought Lola to New York City. It wasn't
her heart soon found it's home in Coney Island. Since that fateful day, Lola
Staar has captured the hearts of millions with the adorably sassy line of tee
shirts that she designs and sells at The Lola Staar Souvenir Boutique on the
Coney Island Boardwalk, the Union Square Holiday Market and in fabulous retail
stores across the world.

mayhem and wonder, Coney Island. Since the summer of 2001 the iridescent
