Lian Cara is a luxury womenswear label based in South Wales, UK.
Founded in 2018 by Lian Poulson, the label has maintained its values for handcrafted garments by continuing to design and manufacture within Wales.
Lian often takes inspiration from the rural landscape of the Welsh countryside.
Translating the textures and fluidity found in the landscape into her unique collections. Specialising in laser cutting, Lian often uses this method as a way of creating pattern in her garments.
Her selection of unique and elegant womenswear is designed to flatter and compliment the feminine form.
Recognition and achievements
Lian’s passion and appreciation for the Welsh countryside has been recognised by many publications including British Vogue, in which she featured as a designer profile for 3 consecutive months in 2018.
Since the label began, Lian Cara has gone on to achieve a number of awards and acknowledgments for the business and herself.
In 2017, Lian was awarded first place at the Beacon Bursary. This then gave Lian sufficient funding to start her journey in creating the business.
In September, 2018, Lian Cara featured her new ready to wear collection with Fashion’s Finest at London Fashion Week.
In 2018, Lian was fortunate enough to be a finalist in the Wales Start-up Awards for the “Young Entrepreneur of the Year”.
