Lana Bramlette is the Founder of the Chicago Fashion Foundation and the Designer of Lana Jewelry.
“I created the Chicago Fashion Foundation (CFF), to bring awareness to the fashion industry in Chicago and to establish a scholarship fund,” said Bramlette.
Lana Bramlette, designer of Lana Jewelry™ is well known for bringing back yellow gold to the mainstream and making it sexy, fashion forward and wearable for all women everyday.
Established in 2003, the fine gold and diamond jewelry line is one of the leading American jewelry companies today, being carried in the best retailers across the world including Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Bergdorf Goodman, Harrod's and Fred Segal.
Lana’s famed signature Eternity necklace and popular 3-Tear earrings have garnered a cult-like following with everyday clients and celebrities including Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson, Katherine Heigl, Angelina Jolie, Michelle Pfeiffer, Rachel Weisz, and fashion designer Monique Lhuiller. Lana Jewelry does not gift celebrities and is honored to consider them true clients who purchase their pieces just like everyone else.
Following in the same tradition of her namesake fine jewelry collections, Lana has now turned her attention and sights on accessorizing the beauty and home fragrance arena by reinventing the most basic of the items, the candle. In development for over a year and unlike anything else in the market place, Lana has created the most opulent and luxurious candle ever. Graced with one gram of 24 karat gold flakes and hand-poured with 12 percent of a custom-blended perfume, the Lana Jewelry™ 24 KT GOLD HEAT candle is like jewelry or a piece of art.
Born in Moscow, Russia, Lana moved to Chicago with her parents at age 7. Today, at 38, she considers her hometown to be one of the greatest cities in the world, and is inspired by its architecture, and rich history. Running her business with her partner and father Naum, Lana truly believes she is a lucky girl. “I get to design beautiful jewelry, work with incredible women who make my company a success and I get to work with my dad everyday, I am truly blessed!”
Lana resides in Chicago with the love of her life Rob, who inspired her to design the first jewelry piece in the collection… and the rest as they say….is history!
