Our founder Lola built the business from scratch, and her tenacious nature and ability to dynamically diversify over the years has led Longina Phillips Designs to become the industry-leading behemoth it is today. Lola originally came to Australia from Poland as a refugee and credits her drive and inventive disposition to these early challenges. She studied Graphic Design before following her passion for textile design and founding the Longina Phillips Design studio in 1988 - and hasn’t looked back since! Under her masterful direction, the studio has thrived and grown to become an internationally renowned name in the textile industry. Not to mention the other two powerhouses who run the business; Creative Director, Bec, and Head of Design, Sara, as well as the wealth of other talents that LPD employs.
