Once upon a time there was a dream... I'm Ilaria, Illytrilly was born in Italy in 2010, right after the birth of my baby girl and a box full of colorful sewing threads. In 2014, Illytrilly moved to London with a suitcase full of Made in Italy. After three years, I met Mara, my Princess Charming, and her fabulous business skills and we lived happily ever after.
