About

Hello, and welcome to Lilly Inverse Designs! Lilly Inverse Designs is a small, Ann Arbor, MI based alternative clothing & accessories company. All the crafts, clothing, and accessories are designed and created by Lilly Inverse and friends by hand. We strive to bring you high quality fashion and geekery made in a smoke-free environment.

Lilly Inverse was started because we saw a decline in the availability of original cybergoth, lolita, goth, and punk clothing and accessories, as well as an increase in price! We feel that everyone has the right to custom and unique cyber goth clothing, goth accessories, and geekery of every kind for an affordable price. We get the majority of our materials wholesale, which means we are able to offer the best prices on things like custom cyberlox, arm warmers, lolita skirts, and more! If you don’t see something  that fits your needs, feel free to contact us and we will be more than happy to work with you.

Contact

Lilly Inverse Designs is happy to receive any questions, comments, feedback, custom requests, or requests to have our clothing and accessories featured in your store. Our email is LillyInverse@Gmail.com. We check our email every day and will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible!

Schedule

We travel to several conventions every year. We often run conventions-only sales, and there’s also the added benefit of not having to pay shipping when you buy in person! If you’d like to come visit us and check out our art in person at a convention, here’s the list! If you’d like to stay up to date with the most recent events, products, and sales, please join our mailing list.
