Hello followers! Long time no post, we know. It's been a tough and busy year for all of us here at Lilith et Adalia, in short, life happens. But let's keep it positive and keep moving forward for a better and brighter future.
This year we took on the challenge of being involved in Rufflecon 2016. Rufflecon is an alternative fashion conference for all types of frilly connoisseurs. We participated in the fashion show and were vendors in the Marketplace. We also did a brand collaboration with Atelier Sucrè!
We had 8 total looks in the fashion show. Lilith et Adalia showed 6 looks, and Atelier Sucrè showcased 2 looks. They also made some coordinating accessories for our pieces!
Our theme this year was "Midnight Masquerade". Very dark and mystical looks that evoked a sense of fantasy and transported you to another era. Each look was rather unique.
Without further ado, here are the pieces! If you are interested in purchasing the items, we have linked the ones that are available at our Etsy Shop!
All of our pieces have full or partial shirring for ease of fit!
2 Piece Jaquard Brocade Bodice and Textured Stripe Skirt Set
Modeled by Caitlin
Military inspired regalia, this set is very versatile as each piece can be worn as a set or separately. The bodice is made of a luxurious emerald green jacquard brocade fabric with metallic gold stitching. The front is adorned with gold braid trim and gold metal buttons. The skirt is full elastic for ease of wear and comfort and features a black textured stripe cotton suiting fabric. Bows at the hem are also removable.

We thank you all so much for your ongoing support of our brands and to everyone who reached out to us and praised us on our accomplishments. We also want to thank all our wonderful models who were so gracious and cooperative and we couldn't ask for a better bunch of you to make our first debut show successful.
