B-LOW THE BELT
It's amazing what can blossom from a friendship...
Carole and Ana have an energy that seems magical. Their accessories company, B-Low the Belt is growing fast, and these two women have got all the style, passion, and down-to-earth sensibility to support their magic!
Carole Kotler has true instinct about fashion that just can't be learned. A native of Los Angeles, she knows exactly where to find unique, quality materials like one-of-a-kind vintage straps and raw materials. Her accessories designs reflect a heart-felt connection to the '60s & '70s. Carole combines classic vintage elements with a splash of trend for the truly unique B-Low the Belt collection of belts and accessories.
Ana Schoenberg was born in Cuba, raised in Mexico and Los Angeles. Her knack for business started with JLS Collections, a home accessories company. She has an innate ability to connect with people and an understanding of her customer that goes way beyond just the sales. Ana's knowledge of the industry is the perfect complement to Carole's creative vision.
Ana and Carole started as neighbors and quickly became fabulous friends. Now, sixteen years later, B-Low the Belt has blossomed from that friendship. They shared their first designs in 2002 with the shops Kitson and Intuition. Now, they cater to specialty boutiques and high-end department stores nationwide and internationally.
They've been featured in Vogue, Elle, WWD, InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Life & Style Weekly, O Magazine, US Weekly, People, the cover of Glamour, and many, many more. The B-Low the Belt operation resides in Culver City, the new creative epicenter of Los Angeles.
