Lilia Ballí is a tailoring and custom apparel company in Austin, Texas that was founded in June 2011 when I was invited to sell my one-of-a-kind designs at a local fashion co-op. Two years later, I completed my B.S. in Textiles and Apparel Design at the University of Texas at Austin. My senior collection entitled "Scottish Invasion" won "Best Overall Collection – Honorable Mention" at the 2013 Transcend Fashion Show at the Frank Erwin Center. During that time, I apprenticed at Gassane Tailors, notable for being former Presidents George W. Bush and Lyndon Baines Johnson's personal tailor.
I specialize in tailoring men's and women's clothing, repairs, and creating custom designs for women, focusing on bridal. I offer pattern making and sample services for fashion designers. I have worked on alterations ranging from hemming pants and fixing holes to modifying christening gowns and 100-year-old wedding dresses. My custom designs have included cocktail dresses for Vegas vacations, winter coats, costumes for film productions, and formal wear.
