Hollywould | Creative Director, Holly Dunlap, began her career in fashion at the young age of 17 as an intern for New York socialite designer Carolyne Roehm. Although Holly was not paid a salary during her time with Carolyne, she was paid in the next best thing: Manolo Blahnik Shoes. From her first pair of Manolos, Holly realized that there were shoes and there were shoes. From New York, Holly attended design school in Paris and landed her dream job working for Christian Lacroix upon graduation. Next, Holly moved to London to work for her long-time fashion idol, Vivienne Westwood. Although Holly loved working for Vivienne, she missed the beaches of sunny Los Angeles and headed back to the states to work as a celebrity stylist. After a year in LA, Holly was ready to move back to the design side of fashion and took the position of Head Designer at Lilly Pulitzer. Having grown up in head-to-toe Lilly, Holly jumped at the chance to revitalize the line, which had been defunct for almost 15 years. She revamped the entire line of Lilly silhouettes and the classic Lilly prints. Her modern, preppy designs made Lilly Pulitzer a household name once again and, after a few years at Lilly, Holly felt she was ready to start her own line. Though Holly’s experience was in print and apparel design, her love for shoes made them the obvious choice for her own label. She named her brand “Hollywould” because she knew her main source of inspiration would come from the glamorous lifestyle of Hollywood, CA. Holly’s first collection of all-American, sexy Hollywould shoes hit Bergdorf Goodman in Spring of 2000, and is now sold in over 60 better boutiques and department stores worldwide, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Harrods and Le Bon Marche. Once Hollywould shoes & bags established a cult following, customers begged for clothing with Holly’s unique designs. The colorful, flirty collection of Hollywould dresses debuted for Resort 2004, and the Hollywould clothing collection is now available at Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. Holly currently splits her time between her apartment & office in New York City and her design studio in Florence, Italy.
