Designer of Lillie Latasha Hall has always had a fond love for fashion. In her early years of being an artist she sat for hours drawing and designing figures in her head. It wasn’t until she was introduced to sewing by a family friend that she began to unify her passion for the arts and sewing, turning sketches into wearable clothing. Since then she has been able t accumulate over 15 years of experience in the fashion industry. Latasha has dedicated time to perfect her craftsmanship with experience in bridal, evening, ready to wear, and alterations.
In 2008 as a graduate of The Art Institute of Philadelphia Latasha became immersed in the fashion industry. Working as an assistant woven designer for Sean John as well as a denim designer for Synergy jeans she gained vast experience in the fast paced New York menswear scene. Searching for a more hands on approach to fashion Latasha then explored the alterations avenue of the industry by landing a job as a seamstress for Nordstrom as well as various bridal and suit boutiques.
In 2013 Latasha realized her ultimate passion of designing custom pieces for an array of clients and for celebrity clients that include, Vivian Green, GOGO Morrow, Erica Campbell and a Grammy appearance by Kristal Lyndriette. With this new found passion she began focusing all of her attention on building her company Lillie whose name serves as a dedication to her late grandmother Ester Lillie Coles who embodied the classic feminine essence with a touch of sophistication and spunk.
Since beginning Lillie Latasha’s designs have been featured in numerous magazine publications as well as gaining clients from around the country. Latasha hopes to bring her brand internationally in the future.
