ABOUT MAIA – An emerging fashion graduate from the Whitehouse Institute of Design (Australia), and based in Ascot Vale, Melbourne, Maia Lillford has a passion for sustainable, ethical and Australian made clothing.
She has spent the past year working for renowned Melbourne label, Dejour Jeans. During this past year she has been featured in: The Australian Times Fashion Magazine, Lomography Magazine International and Visible Inc. Magazine. Having an interest for highly decorative and colourful garments, she was head stylist for MD Cinevision Pictures for the Bollywood music video Surmain 2013.
This eco-friendly emphasis is further demonstrated through the durability of the clothing via the use of hydrophobic spray and other cutting edge innovations.
“My designs have a strong focus on sustainability, and are displayed in an unconventional manner. I feature colour, shape and pattern in an abstract way to be both visually and functionally unique, “ Lillford says of her collection bound for New York.
The combination of thoughtful design and exciting new advances in the production of textiles, means Lillford is able to ensure the clothing is to the highest standards of excellence as well as guilt-free.
Maia works with bold and bright colours and a wide range of materials for her clothing. Her collections embrace functionality, partnered with hyper aesthetics, and highly structured silhouettes.
Maia Lillford joins fellow Australian designers for the HOUSE OF BLING SHOWCASE on 20th JUNE 2015 in New York, USA, featuring: guru and highly sought-after fashion king MATCHO SUBA; the bespoke and divine eveningwear glamour of TETTMANN.DOUST; and sparkly handcrafted and bedazzling heels from CRYSTAL SHOE COUTURE.
