Christina WhittleThe Story Behind the Dolce Designs Studio
Christina Whittle formed Dolce Designs Studio out of a desire to offer top level, full service decor and design to the public in an intimately collaborative and creatively unified environment with only the best distributors, resources, pool of talent, and team of professionals gathered throughout her professional careers.
In addition to this desire, she made the decision that out of her rich list of resources she would only work with people who brought something to the table that would strengthen the Dolce team as a whole as well as be the type of professionals who she would gladly spend her free time with at the end of the day.
Dolce Designs Studio is built upon the precept that the business itself is just a way to put into practice the creative energy and individual passions of her life. And that the company, the standard of work produced, as well as the level of enjoyment and quality of life she lived while doing it, would never lose sight of this.
In line with these standards, one must understand that the team of talented individuals that Christina has assembled are long time friends, co-collaborators, and fans of each others creative abilities and professional achievements.
Together, Dolce Designs Studio team are able to offer a wide range of services in an environment of hand picked, passion, creativity driven and true professionals whose dedication to their vision and commitment to a happy existence creates unforgettable events and design for their clients on a daily basis.
Christina began her journey in the event industry twenty years ago while working for a boutique florist. Her close interaction with expert designers assisted in realizing (a little later in life) that design would somehow be a path she had to pursue. After graduating college Christina went on to work for a few corporate Marketing & Sales jobs where she gained great experience in small to large trade show production, creating and executing local to national sales and marketing campaigns & running a multi-million dollar sales unit. She drew from all the experiences and sought out to make a change, it was time to fulfill the piece that she felt was missing – to have creative freedom, and this is when Dolce Flower Designs was formed.
Christina’s determination & business skills developed along the way allowed her to establish Dolce Flower Designs quickly within the LA area as a go-to boutiquey design studio. Commencing as a floral event design company that specialized in weddings and corporate functions, her company, through time, also began to diversify into other facets of decor. She began to create other elements and take on the tasks of event design & production of non-floral décor for some of her regular clientele. As the list of clientele grew each year it was realized that Dolce was no longer just a floral design studio. It was then that Dolce Flower Designs became Dolce Designs Studio to meet the demands of her expanding list of clientele. Dolce Designs Studio has now grown to be recognized as a leader in creativity, fresh perspectives and a valuable team player with many of the top event planners both nationally and internationally. Christina and the design team of Dolce thrive on creating and delivering – floral, draping, custom facade fabrication, props or furniture…give them an idea and then sit back and enjoy watching the idea come to life!
