We know that every great company starts first, with a big idea and second, a hell of a lot of determination. At Glassworks, it’s all down to Lauren Lewis for planting the seed and fastening her seatbelt in the whirlwind journey that’s brought the glassy vision to life.
Originally from New York, Lauren found herself in banking after studying economics, industrial engineering and history at Columbia (our girl’s got style AND brains it would seem). Banking took her all over the world from New York to Tokyo (konnichi ha!) to Dubai before finally settling down in Shoreditch, London.
Studying company models into the midnight hours, Lauren found a gap in the market – a gap filled by girls like us. She wanted to create a space for the women whose lust for life keeps us all on the tips of our style toes.
And so, a company was born. Lauren left banking in the dust and set up virtual shop in her home – a converted glass factory in east London called Glassworks Studios. She planted the seed. Grew it. Loved it. Still growin’ it. Still lovin’ it.
