A color, a new fabric and a classic pattern, Kylee has a lot to choose from while in charge of her fashion design. Diagnosed with leukemia, Kylee deals with boring hospital gowns, but today she's surrounded by vibrant colors and sketches.
Make-A-Wish® Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley partner with the staff at Lilly Pulitzer®- clothing and accessory fashion line - to welcome Kylee into the fashion world. Kylee already has the first part down: show up to work in style – in a limousine.
The Lilly staff excited to share the power of a wish® show her around the distribution center, merchandising, design and product development departments. Kylee watches as designers create the Lilly shift.
Now it’s her turn to put her creativity to work in the print design studio. Designers Stacey, Paige and Abraham make Kylee part of the team as she’s given a sketch book to let her imagination take flight. Her mind swirls with creativity – a world away from worrying about her medical condition.
And she couldn’t spend a whole day learning and thinking about fashion without actually checking out some clothes. Her new friends at Lilly hand her skirts, dresses and swimsuits to try on, with an added surprise: she gets to take them home – along with a matching dress for mom.
A wish experience, like Kylee’s, gives a child hope to take control of a medical condition – just like Kylee did with her sketchbook.
