Lola Beer Ebner, born Carola Zwillinger (6 August 1910 – 3 March 1997) was an Israeli fashion designer.

Lola Beer Ebner was born in Moravian town of Prostějov, that became part of Czechoslovakia in 1918. She studied at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. In 1939, she left homeland to Mandatory Palestine.

In Israel, she became known as the "national dresser" for designing the clothes of the wives of Israeli prime ministers and politicians. In the 1950s, she designed uniforms for El Al stewardesses and in the 1960s, the uniforms for Israel Defense Forces women soldiers. She designed the academic robes of the Weizmann Institute and theater costumes. She also designed a ready-made line of colorful dresses for ATA, which had previously made uniforms and sturdy work clothes, and marketed two perfumes, "Dimona" and "Dimont." Beer Ebner took her inspiration from Paris and quipped that it would “at least five hundred years” to develop uniquely Israeli fashion.

An exhibit of Beer Ebner's work was held in 2010 at Tel Aviv's Czech Center.
