It all started while LIYA was learning and working in artists atelier in Vienna, getting ready to continue her higher education in Arts.
Back in the day she was not sure which profession she wanted in fashion but she knew that she wanted to work in that industry as a designer, stylist, illustrator, pattern maker, etc.
At first it was never an ambition or plan to start namesake brand. After returning to her hometown Tbilisi, Georgia where fashion scene was emerging and creative minds and projects were all around the town, it felt rather natural to start experimenting and developing her own signature brand.
The debut collection caught attention of international press and buyers. From the very first season LIYA was able to secure sales and company started to grow day by day.
Since then, LIYA has been presenting collections four times a year during sale season in Paris, participating in Fashion week twice a year.
All LIYA products are created in our atelier and workshop. All fabrics and materials are handpicked and handmade with particular attention to the details.
LIYA is available worldwide online and in retailers such as Printemps, Luisaviaroma, Farfetch, Harvey Nichols, Beymen, More Is Love, Poison Drop etc.
