Blending culture and fashion whilst celebrating the traditional techniques of different countries.
Daisy Lilah…….. A Brixton based fashion designer
The world of Lilah rests in the traditional textile roots of three very different countries – Britain (Lilah), India (Maha) and Kenya (Dalila). Each unique, and with a vast and varied textile story, these countries offer countless opportunities to uncover and explore. Lilah translates the lives and cultures of different societies into wearable contemporary designs. Each garment or accessory aims to pay tribute to, and celebrate the creativity of, the peoples of these countries.
My background in history, textiles and art has given me a growing fascination for traditional costume and textile methods. Three years spent studying design has enabled me to learn the foundations of pattern cutting and making, and inspired me to design clothes.
For me, Lilah is a tactile, physical and visual exhibition of the magnificent and diverse textile world around us.
