About By Design
Lillian's love of sewing and creating began when she took her first sewing class at the age of 14. Since that time she has honed the craft and skill through practice, classes from experts and internships. Lillian graduated from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville with a Bachelor of Arts degree and an emphasis on textiles. Now her area of focus is developing new lines of clothing under the "Lillian by Design" label as well as designing and creating Demi-Couture clothing for individual clients.
When designing wearable art, Lillian's goal is to make each piece unique, specifically fitted to the individual. Lillian's shop in Alton is an inviting corner of the world where she works, explores ideas, offers internships, teaches and, of course, sells her clothing creations.
