The Design team - Lucy, Kiko and Roxy.
 

Montreal designer Lucy Medeiros, owner and founder of Roxy and Lulu, was born and raised in the heart of Montreal in a traditional European family. Having grown up with both her parents working in the needle trade, it seemed natural for her to go into the same line of business.

Upon graduating in the Fashion Design program at Lasalle College in Montreal in1984, she landed her first job with a local Junior wear company. With a creative mind and an eagerness to learn, she gained experience and wisdom. Throughout her career she went on to work with various Canadian and US major retailers in Ladies, and Men’s wear as a fashion merchandiser.

After her first child was born, Lucy discovered a passion for children’s wear,

where she spent 10 years of her career designing and merchandising junior girls 7-16, for different local companies and brands such as La Senza Girl. Looking back today, little did she know that in 2004 she would have a life changing experience that would lead her on the path to where she is today, when a little blonde female Yorkie named Roxy came into her life and captured her heart. It wasn’t too long after, that another furry member was added to the family, a male Yorkie named Kiko.

Needless to say with Roxy and Kiko as her inspirations, it only seemed natural to move her career in a pet related direction. At the end of 2006 “Roxy and Lulu” was born naming the company after Roxy, who was her inspiration for starting her business and LuLu, her own childhood nick name. Lucy has spent the past few years in the pet industry making her mark designing and creating different lines of handmade Swarovski crystal dog collars and matching leads.

August 2008 was the official launch of her doggy wear line at Pet Fashion Week in New York city, a trade show open strictly to industry buyers and media. Her clothing line named “Urban Doggie Wear” inspired by today’s street fashions consist of, stretch tee’s, jeans and jean skirts, velour hoodies, fur coats, and parkas with rhinestone broaches.

Taking her many years of fashion experience and applying them to a different animal has been her latest and most rewarding challenge. As a Designer, she strives to share her creativity with the world by offering her edgy and personal fashion style. With the long hours and hard work involved in this fast paced industry, Lucy always has a smile on her face because her passion and love for this business fuels her drive for success.
