When she turned 20, she began travelling around Brazil visiting clothing factories and studying dressmaking, particularly menswear.

When She’s not Sewing, Measuring Or Cutting

In her downtime, Lila loves going to the gym, hiking, and walking, while road trips with her family absolutely top her list of favourite things to do. She loves being a mother and no matter how many times she said no to her daughters getting a dog, she of course gave in and now enjoys spending time with the family’s little baby boy Max.
