Lola Teigland, writer & designer

“The information age has thrust massive changes upon us with no evolutionary time to adapt. New problems require creative solutions. I believe in doing good well. ”

Lola graduated with highest honors from Drexel University. After placing in the “THE NEXT GREATEST AMERICAN DESIGNER” competition, Lola scored a position on Seventh Avenue, first designing for Albert Nipon, then for Christian Dior.

"Hollywood" came calling with big adventures and Lola left the fashion world. She got heavily involved in the NY theatre scene. Television commercials and a short stint on “All My Children” followed. After a summer with David Mamet and the Atlantic Theatre Company, Lola started writing and never looked back.

Lola entered the UCLA Writer’s program. She optioned her first two screenplays; her next few scripts placed in several prestigious contests, including the Nicholl Fellowship, Project Greenlight, the Austin Film Festival and the Sundance Writer’s Lab.

Lola watched the second plane dive into the World Trade Center and her passion for cause-related work began. She became a pet advocate after adopting her two dogs. Lola knew she had the fashion and entertainment skills to do for dogs what PETA did for anti-fur. Her mission began.
