Costumes by The Colombo’s of “Artistic Creations”, Madisonville, Louisiana

As “Captain and Leader” of Lake Charles, Louisiana Mardi Gras Krewe de la Famille, Anne had an eye for color, design, and the need for personal service to customers. Working diligently to create a line of trims to suite the needs of not only costumers but eveningwear and bridal wear, Anne’s company grew to popularity among Fabric Stores, Costume Shops, and with Manufacturers. Known for not only her friendly service but the patience to work “one on one” with designers and companies in order to create custom styles and colors that designers “dream” for their creations with low, affordable minimums.

In 1997, Anne sold the Glitz Company after ten strong years as an Importer from China and Distributor. The Company continued for seven more years before closing under the new ownership. After Anne’s ten year “Hiatus”, she eagerly reopened the doors under “Appliqués with Glitz”along with her best friend and husband, Lee J. Monlezun, Jr. MD. Together they will eagerly welcome your orders and look forward to meeting you at area trade shows!
