Lian Cara

Lian Cara is a womenswear designer from Carmarthenshire, South Wales who was fortunate enough to have her work showcased for three consecutive months as a designer profile in British Vogue. Following this success, Lian Cara new ready to wear collection, takes its inspiration from her recent high-end collection, Natural Reflection.

As a designer, creating pattern through the construction of a garment, rather than using traditional methods such as print, has always inspired the work of Lian Cara. More recently, she has combined this design concept with Laser cutting to create intricate design details and cut-outs.

Inspired by the natural beauty around her Welsh hometown of Llandovery, Carmarthenshire, Lian Cara takes her inspiration from the natural shapes and textures found amongst the Welsh countryside.
