The fabulous FashioNZ interviewed me recently on the coming collection and lots of other things! If you want to have a fun read it is up now on-
A little preview about the coming collection -- it is strong and bold, with black, gold and silver combined with rich pinks and deep sea green.
I fell in love with the textures of the fabrics, several reminding me of the rich look and feel of Chanel. I wanted bold prints that would pop out in the winter.
I always love to introduce gold into my collections, I adore gold, could be to do with my Greek background?! The gold in this collection was special though as it was recently my parents 50th Golden Anniversary so I was inspired by that. The hint of that 50's style meeting with modern print comes through in the collection..We will keep you posted when it is out!
For those of you outside NZ we have our gorgeous Kiwi Obsession collection Spring/Summer 2017 from FWLA ready to be worn with gorgeous soft florals, denim and a bright colour palette perfect for the warm weather.
March is a super busy month for Lilika being featured! We have another feature going into Cosmopolitan UK with a design from the runway in LA, also we have Lucy's Magazine in the US featuring a full page of LDFH which is out mid-march. Then we have HARPER"S BAZAAR UK who asked us to feature very recently in their Collectors issue under Luxury Couture!
I am so proud to have my posh Kiwi brand inside the covers of these fabulous fashion magazines! Let us also not forget in April we have ELLE UK who is featuring us also!
On the 4th-10th of March we are supporting a wonderful charity here in NZ called SHINE that raises money to help those involved in domestic abuse. They are lighting it orange for that week in March to raise money in supporting their amazing work. Lily-Rose Redshaw (pictured below) is the founder of Naturally Rosie, a NZ organic beauty brand, she is donating $5 out of every purchase to support Shine! I use these products myself and they are amazing. We just did a post this week on going in the draw to win a fabulous hamper, packed full of goodies including a $150 Lilika Designs gift voucher!
