Lilla is a womenswear, textile and accessories designer based in London and Budapest.
As a textile designer she is is specialized in embroidery, but also skilled in print and knit.
Born and raised is Hungary, Lilla's graduate AW13 collection was inspired by Hungarian heritage and culture. "Folk Supernatural" is based around the supernatural means of Hungarian Folkwear. It is the result of her interest in the hidden meanings of folk dress and focuses on the close relationship between peasant costume and superstition.
Sophisticated, edgy and inspired by imacculate craftmanship are the ethos behind the collection and Lilla's work in general.
Lilla's aim with this collection was to innovatively modernize denselly embellished and carefully crafted folk dress and create a collection that is rich in textures and embellishments by using various hand - and machine embroidery techniques.
Lilla is also engaged in leather jewellery and accessory design. She started creating jewelleries years ago as a hobby, but since 2010 her hobby slowly developed into a small business, and now she is selling her designs in independent and online designer boutiques.
