Carole (B-Low the Belt) Goebels
Carole Goebels is a native of Los Angeles who knows exactly where to find unique, quality materials like one-of-a-kind vintage straps and raw materials. Her designs reflect a heart-felt connection to music and culture of the 60's and 70's, and of course... the latest trends in fashion. Ana Schoenberg was born in Cuba, raised in Mexico and Los Angeles. Her knack for business started with JLS Collections, a home accessories company. Ana especially 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 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... who immediately placed orders. Now, they cater to specialty boutiques and high-end department stores nationwide, and internationally as well with reps in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, and Hamburg. They've been featured in Vogue, Elle, WWD, InStyle, and the cover of Glamour.
