It was not until high school Lily began to show an interest in fashion. She had to attend a Catholic school and wear a uniform. As Lily explains it from Vogue Page:
“I had to wear a uniform to school, so it was all about the shoes. That is how you identified yourself when you went to a Catholic school, by your shoes! I kind of liked the Adidas shell-toe sneakers. I was into rock ’n’ roll so I would also wear Dr. Martens, and cut-off jeans with a simple T-shirt.”
