ABOUT THE AUTHOR
AUTHOR - CHRISTINA KILMISTER
"Empowering The Sisterhood Through Fashion"
Christina is from a Greek background and the youngest of four sisters, growing up in New Zealand.
Her mother sewed garments from a young age, and her mother also had a great love for all things fashion. So it is no surprise Christina has emulated that same passion through the generations.
Christina obtained a diploma in Fashion Design and Fashion Styling then went on to start her own business.
With being a young mum of two at the time, she soon found that she couldn't devote the time needed to her rapidly growing business and decided to join the family business for more balance.
After several years, Christina moved into a corporate role, but realized some years later she was missing her true passion:- Fashion. She walked away from a corporate career to follow her heart. Christina is now founder/fashion designer of her own brand Lilika Designs (named after her mother).
Christina knew this was her purpose, she was here to empower and inspire the sisterhood, through fashion. She wanted women to feel special, fabulous in their skin. Bringing out their inner "Queen", to love themselves, follow their heart and live the ultimate life they love.
That is why she was driven to tell her own personal story, with the ups and downs, all she discovered and learnt from her experiences. What it takes to chase your dream and do what you love. She wears her heart on her sleeve and shares it all.
A whirlwind and amazingly special journey unfolded resulting in invtations to showcase all over the world including Paris, London, Milan and New York. Features in renowned fashion magazines- ELLE, Harpers Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and more.
When Christina is not designing, styling and running her brand, she is with her other true loves. Husband Bevan, children Timothy, Lily-Rose and her long time horse- Atlas.
