About The Designer
In 2001 Lilia launched her own label. Her first collection,
entitled “Edgy Classics,” was chosen to be part of the Young Designers showcase in New York. Lilia's next milestone was the presentation of her exclusive eveningwear and bridal collection at a spectacular gala event held in the grand setting of the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations. Since then, Lilia's designs have been featured in the Miss Model Universe Competition as well as the Miss Russian New York 2005 pageant. The popularity of Lilia’s creations has landed her guest TV and radio appearances on fashion programs and her collections and shows have been mentioned in Time Out New York, WCBS News, UPN News, Fox 5 News, NY Daily News, NY Post, Paper Magazine, Bay News, Russian Bride of New York, and Brideus.com. In November 2004 Lilia Berzon was nominated for Fashion Group International's Rising Star Awards. Lilia's creativity, enthusiasm and determination are serving to propel her into what promises to be a very successful career in fashion, notes producer of Couture Fashion Week Andres Aquino. Her designs represent an appealing combination of sophisticated European flair and American playfulness and comfort.
With a degree in Fashion Design and Fashion Merchandising Management from the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology, Lilia Berzon spent over 10 years working for such major fashion companies as the Express, Victoria’s Secret, Phillips-Van-Heusen, and DKNY as well as being an Associate Fashion Editor for Inside Fashion magazine
