Ready To Wear Collection
“I have worn my Lillian Dress SO much and had SO many compliments. The pockets are amazing and the fabric is so hardy - it still looks brand new. Thanks so much!”
"Super high-quality and sustainable fashion that can be customised to perfectly fit!"
"I've bought a couple of pieces from Liv, including the Freya Top and the LILA crew. Both are wonderful essential pieces for everyday wear. They are super comfy, and Liv takes so much care and consideration with her pieces. I really appreciate how much thought has gone in to make them sustainable.
"I have purchased several garments from LILA by Liv and I adore each one of them. Each garment is custom made and feels so special. Highly recommend ordering from LILA for the comfiest and cutest pieces you will love for years!
Frequently Asked Questions
How does 'made-to-order' work?
Made To Order means that we don't make your garment until you have completed your purchase. This allows us to have less fabric waste, and encourages thoughtful investment. For more details please see our Made To Order Info Page.
Do you offer a complete custom order service?
Yes we do. If you would like to discuss a complete custom idea or customise an existing design, please contact Liv via email or social media. We can then setup a consultation and design your dream garment.
Where and how are the garments made?
Each garment is handmade in Wellington, New Zealand. We work very closely with our local seamstresses and most pieces are crafted in our founder Liv's home studio. Read more on Our Story Page.
What materials do you use?
LILA by Liv only works with natural and sustainable materials. We mostly craft our garments from 100% cotton or linen. Additional materials that we may use include: Wool, cotton/linen blends, viscose/rayon, tencel or merino. We do not use any polyester materials. See our Fabrics Page for more information.
