I’ve always heard if you experience a fashion trend and it resurfaces, you are too old to wear it the second time around. Lilly is the Exception to that rule for me. I won’t ever be seen wearing flash dance tee shirts again, but my love affair with Lilly will never end. I first wore Lilly Pulitzer fashions when I was in college. Still to this day, I enjoy a little “Lilly style” when I am at my beach house in the summer.
Lilly Pulitzer’s story is truly amazing and worthy of a read. Please take a couple of minutes and read about the amazing rebel of her era here.
From her incredible serendipitous beginning in 60’s, Lilly’s fashion line has grown into quite an empire
Lilly retired in 1984 and the business remained closed until 1993 when she decided to reopen and remain creative director. Since that time the fashion line has grown into update styles and fabrics that still remain true to the “Lilly Look” but now also includes fashions for the home.
Lilly Pulitzer has partnered with Lee Jofa to produce a line of fabrics for the home. When I was in the Kravet Showroom recently, I took some pictures of fabrics and thought I would share. I was working on a project for a beach house design. If you are interested in pricing on any of the fabrics, please email me at Lmende@gmail.com
