LiiLii Zhao is a treasure trove of talents and passion. She is a sculptor, accessory designer, and industrial designer, and is passionate about conservation of mother Earth. Her energy and passion reflects in her work well. Now LiiLii Zhao has come up with a line of leather bags made from eco-friendly leather imported from Italy.
As they say that coming events cast their shadow before, and this is true in case of LiiLii. Since her childhood, LiiLii never accepted the stereotypes and always brought in her own element of individuality in whatever she did. She never wore pinks and reds, the colors stereotyped as colors of femininity and meant for girls. She rather went by her own fashion sense and did things in her own way – a tenet that has continued in her professional work also. As a child, LiiLii sought inspiration from her mother who did things differently – she saw her mother opening a boutique of her own and then running it successfully. That environment of creativity nurtured her hidden talents and the girl made up her mind to do something different in the world of fashion.
After finishing her studies from Rhode Island School of Design, LiiLii headed to New York and worked for about five years before starting her own brand in the year of 2010. Her brand is all about vintage inspired handbag collection. Her vintage collection is inspired by artists Kara Walker’s cut out artwork and vintage shoes. The raw material used for these bags is eco-friendly; the leather with custom-made hand cut texture comes especially from Italy. LiiLii wants to make a clientele base consisting of those women who do not follow stereotypes, like elegant and tasteful things, believe in preserving heritage, and take pride in their culture and history.
LiiLii’s contribution for conservation of Earth is not limited to use of eco-friendly leather only. She also contributes her earnings to Greenpeace International, a worldwide independent organization, striving towards saving environment. When a customer buys something from her website, 10% of the earnings go to the NGO’s corpus. LiiLii is particularly interested in supporting ocean conversation, climate change preservation, forest preservation, and protection of endangered species.
Therefore, if you also want to do your bit towards conservation of Earth and at the same time want to be known as an elegant person with unique style, then log on to LiiLii’s website for purchasing eco-friendly vintage bags.
Thanks, LiiLii Zhao
