Glitz, Inc. was founded in
1987 by Anne G. Monlezun, a Dance Teacher and Homemaker intrigued by the “glitz
and glamour” of the sequin and bead world.
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!
