Profanity by Lillzkillz

With vibrant and fun new trends, JCI Fashion Business and Arts and Core Design graduate Lillea Goian, lit up the runway on day two at fashion week. A huge congratulations goes out to Lillea on winning the Nancy Mak Award, presented by the founder of Vancouver Fashion Week, Jamal Abdourahman.

Lillea’s clothing line Profanity has received a lot of attention this year, especially when teen celebrity and artist Noah Cyrus wore a Profanity hoodie at her show in Bethlehem. There was no denying that Lillkillz was born to do this!

Keep up with JCI Alumni, Lillea Goian, on Instagram and catch her in Tokyo on October 20th for Fashion Week!
