the new shop

lanna lyon by clara balzary for the new www.lilyashwell.com

feeling inspired to show my clothes in their natural habitat, i have lovingly curated a selection of vintage pieces, found objects, and art to coexist with my collections. www.lilyashwell.com has evolved into an online concept shop.

while imagining the woman who wears my clothes, i envision the tchotchkes that bring warmth to her home, the sketches in her notebook and the paintings on her wall. i think about what she's reading and what she's listening to. all these little details bring her to life and it feels harmonious to see my collections in this all-encompassing environment.

in the spirit of one-of-a-kind vintage treasures, i'll be creating limited edition collections every week, available exclusively at www.lilyashwell.com.  using vintage and dead-stock fabric, our production runs will be tiny, sometimes making only 1's and 2's of our favorite silhouettes.

this shift feels very personal and true to me. i hope the new shop resonates with you too.

it's been a long time since my failed attempt at starting a blog and i'm finally feeling inspired to get this thing rolling. i've felt a bit foggy this past year and am so thankful to be experiencing a period of clarity and decisiveness! i'm switching things up in all corners of my life and have been feeling creative and thus fulfilled. while i love making clothes, it's also my job, and i realize how important it is i also create for creations sake. i have found much peace and inspiration lately in this purity. must remember to remember 

here is a video i made this past weekend inspired by a dream i had. its called "nightbloom"
