Lia moved to New Orleans from NYC in March of 2016 with an extensive background in fashion and retail. “New Orleans called to me and I could not resist its magical charm.” She joined the Boutique du Vampyre team in January of 2017. Her happiest days are rainy days spent sewing, crafting and painting. As an adolescent, she became interested in vampires after reading Anne Rice novels and her favorite movie is Bram Stoker’s Dracula. She has always been drawn to the darker things in life but also enjoys wine, cats and gardening. As an avid crafter, she makes many of the products for the shop. And designs her own line of jewelry.
In 2017 after years of visiting, Kim finally packed up her two little monsters and left New York for New Orleans. Once settled in her new home in the French Quarter, she needed work. Just a few blocks away, Boutique du Vampyre needed someone to do all of the things she loves to do. So from then on she spends her days painting and sewing, melting and molding, dreaming, developing new products, and learning new crafts all the time. When not at the shop, she loves bartending at a secret vampire speakeasy, working on her own clothes and furniture, being a library nerd, watching horror movies, listening to rockabilly and satan metal, and drinking bloody marys.
