Los Angeles based designer and creative director of GREYLIN, Dora Lim began her infatuation with fashion at a young age while growing up in Brazil. With her parents starting a manufacturing business when she was a toddler, Dora spent many afternoons sneaking into the production floor observing sewers and cutters in lieu of doing homework. She quickly became enthralled by the craftsmanship of making clothes.To fully grasp the business and technical aspects of the fashion industry, Dora enrolled at Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in LA and graduated with a degree in fashion design and product development. Upon graduating, Dora started working for the family business and in spring 2010 she launched GREYLIN.
The inspiration for GREYLIN evolved from her international travels, discovering unknown elements, childhood memories of Brazil, abstract textiles, and interior design. Intermixing timeless everyday classics with bold patterns and colors were the driving principles behind Dora's contemporary line GREYLIN. Melding perfectly crafted silhouettes with unique prints and colors, Greylin provides women with a line that remains timeless throughout seasons at an obtainable price.
