Founder + CEO Hannah has a background in industrial design, with previous experience working both as an apparel designer and accessory designer. While completely miserable within her first week at her first job post-grad, Hannah was always sketching and thinking of new ideas to create as an escape. Once coming home from work in tears had started to become a frequent pattern, her parents sat her down and pushed her to pursue her true design passions. About six months later, Hannah had taken on Lilia full time.
When she is not working, sketching or trend-hunting, she can probably be found out on a run, keeping up with Kimye and Real Housewives, or searching for her next marathon. She also loves spoiling her Australian Shepherd, Rosie, and cat, Java, and will most likely try to adopt any animal she meets.
Hannah loves listening to a mix of podcasts (Say Bible Podcast and Chicago's very own Eric in the Morning Podcast are her top favorites!) and a diverse running playlist. Have any recommendations? Send them over through our contact form or Instagram DM's. Check out some current favorites here:
