Meet Michel & Lily
Lily, a recent graduate from Parsons School of Design, started what has now become LilyEve at the beginning of the pandemic. In a bid to raise money for FoodBankNY, she cut up her parents collection of Hermes towels and turned them into up-cycled face masks. Over the course of that summer the brand gained more attraction and she looked for a partner to help in production. This is when Lily met Michel at the local fish shop.
Lily & Michel met and grew an instant connection. Michel, an 87 year old retired seamster, with a widely impressive background in couture fashion added the missing link to help grow LilyEve into the sustainable clothing company it has now become.
Together they create beautiful one of a kind pieces, hats and face masks, using only up-cycled and repurposed materials.
My husband gave me one of your coats for Christmas (it's white with red) and I just wanted to let you know that I've never received more compliments in my life! I do wear it a lot, but still! Not only my friends but random people on the street stop me all the time (and of course I tell them where I got it!). Anyway just wanted to tell you that and thank you for my wonderful cozy coat.
