German entrepreneur and fashion designer Lilien Stenglein specializes in fashion tech. She approaches her collection concepts with an interdisciplinary perspective and a business background. In 2012, she graduated with a BA in Corporate Management & Economics, then went on to study fashion design, and in 2016 founded her label Lilien Finess Design.
Lilien Finess Designs combine traditional craftsmanship and tech components. Smart textiles add a twist to traditional functionality, while eye-catching details are created through the use of the latest technology, including 3D printing and la- ser cutting. The INFORCE YOGA line was created for the modern, digital yogi who wants to stay connected on the path to enlightenment.
The INFORCE YOGA collection incorporates three different smart textiles from Bremen-based Statex, positioned at specific parts of the body. The fabrics contain 99% pure silver, making them skin-friendly, and giving them various special properties. At chakra energy points, the material reacts warmth back to the body, thereby facilitating the opening of the chakras. To highlight these areas a second layer of fabric in laser cut triangle mesh was added. Furthermore, the textile in the underarms of the garments is odor-neutralizing. And pockets are lined with a fabric that shields the body from electromagnetic radiation generated by mobile phones.
