The Designer

Georgina Herrera was raised around jewelry and fashion her entire life, but she never envisioned herself working in the industry. Herrera received her bachelor’s degree in Industrial Psychology and a Masters in International Relations and began her career as an International Trade Sales Representative for a denim brand in Mexico. Later, Herrera began working with prominent Mexico-based jewelry company, introducing the brand to department stores in Mexico, South America, and Europe.

In 2006, Herrera moved to Kansas City where Georgina’s love of art and design motivated her to create an exclusive jewelry brand, Georgina Jewelry, that is inspired by the character, strength, and determination of the modern woman, and in 2010 she opened her first company in the USA, MCK Brands. Georgina's continued design contributions to the fashion world over the years has been a fusion of fashion trends, her culture, and traditions. This gives her a unique and authentic brand with a fresh, modern classic design that reflects her sense of passion for design.  

Georgina believes that “the connection between love, art, and tradition is unbreakable and determines who we are.”  Because of her strong beliefs, she decided to create Lola’s Bag as her philanthropic arm, which supports her community in Mexico and helps artisans and makers grow their business.

Some of her achievements include being a Women Minority-Owned Business of the Year in 2015 awarded by the state of Kansas, graduating from Scale-Up Kansas City, Cohort 2016, being nominated for the KC Chamber Small Business of the Year 2018, and being selected to present her collections in Kansas City Fashion Week for the past 7 seasons, including showing her F/W’19 collection at KCFW in March, and being selected to present Her jewelry Brand at The opening day of Paris FW in Spring 2019. Georgina’s Designs have also been featured in different magazines and local television.
