LILLY PULITZER THE AMBASSADOR OF HAPPINESS
Ever since I was little, I was always attracted to anything fun, girly, and colorful. Later on, as I grew up and started my shoe company as well as my event styling boutique (Party Magic), this “core” personality of mine naturally came out through the design of my events and shoes.
