Kenya Women in the United States (KWITU) founder and president Lilly Richards has launched a new shoe line dubbed “Lavish by Lilly.”
The shoes, intended for the high-end market, are handmade by a master Italian craftsman from pristine Italian leather and are available on order.
Ms. Lilly has taken to social media to express her joy even as she thanked her customers who have made orders for the shoes.
“Yesterday I woke up to hundreds of tags on the Internet. I did not see it coming but the love and support was unbelievable,” she says.
“How did I get to be so lucky as to have your love and support. You have encouraged me and reassured me of God’s love and promises to us. I am beyond grateful. I am overwhelmed with joy. My heart is full and at this point I can say I am truly happy and always blessed. Thank you for standing with me as I take a chance. Thanks to all that have put in orders. Nashukuru.”
Lilly is an advocate for women and children and currently partners with results.org to help influence political decisions and bring to end preventable maternal and child deaths.
She founded KWITU, one of the largest and most active Kenyan women network in the diaspora.
