Our Story

LILA by Liv was created to serve a purpose.

All pieces are designed with you in mind, making them as accessible and comfortable as possible.

Simplicity and functionality are at the forefront of all garment and homeware designs, with the intention that they would positively impact the wearer or user.

Our Core Values and Purpose

- Re-defining comfort, with a classic and chic aesthetic

- Reminding the wearer of their purpose in life

- Encouraging the wearer to feel comfortable and confident in their own body

- Creating a low impact on the environment and combatting fast fashion

- Inspiring other young creatives with a dream

- Producing high-quality goods that last a lifetime

About the Designer

Olivia (Liv) Jordan founded LILA by Liv in 2020, whilst finishing her Bachelor of Design degree at Massey University.  Liv majored in Fashion Design and graduated with her degree in 2021 with First Class Honours.

Liv designs and makes almost all of her pieces herself, with a helping hand from time to time from local creative friends. All pieces are created from natural fibres, designed to be loved and last a lifetime with good care.

Liv is very passionate about inclusive design, so all of her designs have thoughtfully been created to work for any BODY, with custom options available.

Liv's ultimate goal is that you can create your dream wardrobe through LILA and that you wear every piece you buy for many years to come.

Fabrics + Sustainable Practice

All fabrics are sourced locally from a selection of New Zealand owned fabric stores. Liv chooses to work purely with natural fibres. Any remnant materials are used to create smaller accessories or recycled in a respectful way. All ‘ready to wear’ pieces are thoughtfully planned out in small quantities to avoid too much waste, and all custom designs are made to order.

Just like everyone else, we are still learning and changing. As LILA by Liv continues to grow, there will be more updates on how our sustainable practices are going.
