House of LiJon, a label started by artist Lia Mira in January 2011 presented a high energy collection that featured bold patterns and the brand’s signature hand crafted wearable couture armor. The sensual and high-fashion pieces were unlike anything on the runway before.
For artist Lia Mira, the sculpted couture House of LiJon began with a vision, some rings and a pair of pliers. After researching the medieval craftsmanship of chain-mail, and getting inspiration from everyday clothing and jewelry design, she began the ambitious intense process of teaching herself a forgotten craft.
Her goal…to create one of a kind Chainmail Armor Couture for the fashion forward and art collectors around the world!
