GINA LAMANNA is originally from the east coast and has been living in LA for over 20 years. She has been a clothing buyer and wardrobe stylist for more than two decades. Her diverse career in fashion began at FIT and FIDM, where she earned a degree in fashion merchandising, emphasizing fabric styling and visual presentation. She worked as a stylist for TV and various commercials before turning her attention to personalized wardrobe styling for women on the go. She founded Spool in 2006, a private by-appointment boutique in West LA. Spool offers a very curated and personal shopping experience.
In 2016, Gina was diagnosed with breast cancer and is proactively getting the word out to women how important it is do self-exams and to get second opinions for anything found. Her vigilance saved her life.
When not with clients or collaborating with other female founders, Gina spends her free time with her two young daughters, traveling whenever possible, hosting and entertaining when occasions arise, and enjoying life between carpools. She has been an active supporter of PHASE ONE since the 2018 gala.
