Lilia was born in Shenzhen, Guangdong Provence, in southern China. At a young age she began sketching historical costumes and fashions. In 2002, she opened her own fashion house. She began putting out ready-to-wear in 2003 drawing inspiration from diverse histories. Critics commented that she did not seem to understand the type of clothing the working woman needed. The next year, she opened boutiques within Shenzhen, Nanjing, Shanghai. With her background in historical costume and clothing, Lilia soon made headlines with her opulent, fantasy creations, including the short puffball skirt. In 2005, seeing the potential of an e-shop, she founded the womenswear label “EBHZ”, which advocates stylish feminine style and is themed with independence, confidence and freedom. The creations are crafted in 3D cuts to accentuate a woman’s curvy figure and from trendy fabrics. She believes that one should have self-confidence which represents self trends.
