Lotta Stensson has fashion design in her blood. While other kids were outside playing, Lotta was inside sewing and draping alongside her mother, a successful Swedish fashion designer. Later she continued learning her craft working in her grandmother’s design studio in NYC. Her grandmother, Katja of Sweden, was Sweden’s most prestigious designer and was the star of Saks Fifth Avenue’s famous “Young Dimensions Department” in the 1960’s. A degree in fashion design at the famed Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC completed her education and after working as an assistant to Bettina Reidel, Lotta set off to make her own mark on the fashion industry.
Lotta has come a long way since the early days, when at the young age of 25 she created her first line from two sewing machines out of her tiny NYC apartment. In the year 2000 fashion editors from top magazines including Vogue, Elle and WWD voted Lotta Moet & Chandon’s upcoming designer for Fall 2000. The company sponsored her runway show with Seventh on Sixth in NYC and since then she has been a favorite of New York’s fashion crowd. Lotta now operates her multi million dollar business from Los Angeles California, with a flagship store in the trendy Melrose Heights District. Her designs are also sold at top stores around the world, including Bloomingdale’s, Intermix, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman and Fred Segal. Although living on the West Coast now, New York is never far from Lotta’s heart - the vitality, ethnic diversity and urban elegance of the city continue to shape her as an artist.
