Boring, run-of-the-mill, omnipresent Goody hair ties, watch your back. There’s a new, chic hair accessory town and it’s made in the MIA. Allow us to introduce you to By Lilla handcrafted headbands, bows, hair bands and more. Created by Miamians-by-way-of-Colombia Michelle Finvarb Possin, Natalia Arias Storm and Colette Bakalarz Feldman — these hair accessories are becoming a mane attraction. We chat up Michelle on her biz, lusts and Miami musts.
Why the name By Lilla? We loved the name Lilla — it represents a different type of persona in each of us.
How did By Lilla come to fruition? Natalia started making headbands for a school bazaar, when Colette saw them she loved them so much that they teamed up to start the company. They approached me a couple of weeks later to help them with all the graphic design and we realized that we would make a great team so I joined the team!
