Shortly after meeting in Vancouver BC, Lillen Collection co-founders Liliya Kleschelski and Elena Sambuev soon realized they shared passion for fashion. Liliya studied at the Academy of Art with a background in fashion design and couture draping while Elena got her master’s at St. Petersburg State University of Technology and Design. In 2008, they collaborated to launch Lillen Collection, a sophisticated bridal line for women who appreciate and know quality. There gowns are constructed by only the finest silk fabrics and combined with details such as Swarovski crystals, laser cut appliques and elegant lace. Their combined international experience and education makes them the perfect duo. This is Lillen Collection’s second Spring at COUTURE and we are so happy to have them back.
