size-inclusive selections year-round
classic versatile style
We are also committed to producing versatile classic clothing. We understand the desire to style one piece for a variety of occasions and to get the most wear out of your clothing.
This is why we strive to create pieces that you can choose to style up or down at your choosing. Therefore giving you a variety of options in a single garment.
Durability alongside versatility is an important factor for us when determining what selection we offer. Having a versatile wardrobe that is also durable will increase the lifetime of your clothing, therefore producing less waste.

We believe that fashion is for everyone, and having a size-inclusive range available is just the starting point for an all-inclusive ethical fashion brand.

in our design & manufacturing process
During our design and manufacturing process, we vow to have 100% transparency.
From where our textiles are sourced, to who made your clothes, and every step in between. We will be sharing this with you every step of the way.
We understand that while other brands may feel the need to conceal where their clothing comes from or how it is produced. However, we are excited to share this process with you.
minimal waste production
While we strive for a completely zero-waste production process. We acknowledge that this currently is not a completely realistic principle for our brand.
Alternatively, we chose to share our commitment to a minimal waste production method; from transforming all waste and scrap materials into new and recycled textiles. We do this while we consistently work to progress towards achieving a zero-waste fashion brand.
To ensuring all discarded plastics, cardboard, and other products are properly recycled or reused.
We are striving to have a zero-waste production method. In the meantime, we are dedicated to being as minimal with our wastage as possible.
special consideration when sourcing materials
At Lillian Jenae Designs, we are completely committed to having sustainability, ethics, and our consumer at the forefront of our minds when sourcing our textiles for collections.
We will only source our materials from reputable and trustworthy sources, that stand by our values. We will prioritize using sustainable/ eco-friendly textiles, and deadstock materials when at all possible to bring our designs to life.
Finally, we want to share that this brand will always stand with those who have stood by us. Our community.
We will continue to be inspired by the individuals who support this brand.
We promise to continue designing; versatile, durable, unique pieces that are equally as special as you are.
