Lillian Jenae Designs is a contemporary ready-to-wear womenswear brand that values wearability without sacrificing whimsy. Each garment is designed to enhance a woman’s natural beauty. Garments are constructed using high-end techniques and materials to ensure a perfect product. Ready-To-Wear Designs inspire playfulness and a sense of adventure into a polished, confident woman blending formalwear with streetwear. Recently the brand has shifted, expanding into bridal-wear, engaging our brand emphasis on versatility, comfort and whimsy. Our premier collection debuted at New York Fashion Week in September 2022.
Currently we are working in preparation for our Spring Summer 2024 Season, consisting of two runway presentations, a limited drop and bridal mini launch.
Where are your garments manufactured?
What does sustainability mean to the brand?
All pieces are currently manufactured in house on a made-to-order basis. For future growth and upcoming collections we are branching out to work with apparel manufacturers based in the United States, working on small quantity batches of your favorite whimsical garments.
Sustainability is an incredibly important value to the brand. While utilizing scrap textiles does not fully align with our brand aesthetic we are committed to cutting back on textile waste generated in our production process. We are proud to partner with local sustainable apparel designers to ensure even the smallest of scraps from our studio are utilized and/or consciously recycled.
What Inspires each collection?
While each collection aims to exude a sense of whimsy, each collection has a unique source of inspiration. Most frequently our collections are inspired by a sense of nostalgia, botanicals, photography and art work. Our upcoming collection, Collection 1202, draws inspiration from recent travels, mixing NYC Streetwear with southern bridal elements. Whereas, our SS'23 Line Bloom drew inspiration from personal growth and botanicals inspired by a sense of nostalgia.
When is the next runway show?
Currently our Spring Summer 2024 season consists of two runway shows, both exclusively in Texas, our home state. Our first showing for the SS'24 Season will be part of Texas Fashion Week, hosted in San Antonio, within a College Designer Showcase the evening of October 2nd featuring a mini capsule collection.
Our second runway of the season will be apart of Austin Fashion Week, hosted by Fashion By Events in the early parts of November 2023, additional details to come.
How often do you release collections?
