Here at Garrett Leight, we often talk about soulful individuals, and Lily Ashwell is all soul.
She is not just a clothing designer, but an artist. When you step into her house, you feel peaceful and calm; immersed in books, music, and art. She is passionate about how the clothes she creates make you feel and the story they tell. The beauty in her clothing is knowing the story behind them and the people and places that inspired them. From the sewing to the fabric to the buttons- her pieces are the real deal.
We stopped by to visit Lily and her cute dog Sadie in Venice and see what she has been up too...

Her mini garden includes basil, lettuce and tomatoes
Lily travels all over to collect vintage pieces that inspire her.
Music can always be heard when she is designing in her studio.
For each collection, Lily creates a journal of sorts that tells the story and creates the setting of the girl she envisions wearing her clothes.
Watercolors and handwritten stories..
