Jewelry designer Lily Wikoff dresses for success

 

W hen Lily Wikoff set out to make jewelry and pottery nearly five years ago, she drew on her experience as a model and her studio art degree from Bob Jones University for inspiration in designing fashionably styled accessories.

Fast forward, and Lily Pottery is a successful art boutique in Greenville’s West End arts district. Her stylish jewelry designs have caught national attention and can be found in the Acacia catalog, Urban Outfitters new outdoor-themed store, Terrain, and at all Forever Resorts

Recently, Wikoff set her sights on more material matters. She launched an apparel line called Sissy Cat (named after her nickname for her sister). Sissy Cat’s inaugural line is the Sissy Dress. It’s described as a dress or shirt that can be worn over jeans or leggings. Made of 100-percent organic cotton, each Sissy Dress features a handmade linen flower that is hand-stitched to each garment—making each a one-of-a-kind item.

The suggested retail price is $68. The Sissy Dress comes in black, gray, and navy, with red coming soon. You can find the dress locally at Petals Boutique in Greenville or at Lily Pottery. But act fast, because Wikoff plans to launch Sissy Cat in New York and Los Angeles at the Spring 2012 apparel shows. And with Wikoff’s design history, it’s likely sales will blossom.
