Laurença And Lily Prove Female Friendships Are The Best

Stylists/best friends, London

How long have you been friends for? What’s your fave memory together?
Both: We met at the last Marques Almeida show. We were in the line up next to each other, and have been BFFs ever since. Working on the casting for a show for the last men’s fashion week—a lot of hard work, but we had so much fun!

How would you describe each other in 5 words?
Laurença: Lily is hardworking, fun, curious, talkative, and lovely.
Lily: Laurença is weird, creative, funny, organised (lol), and driven.

What’s your favourite thing about each other?
Laurença: Lily always makes me laugh! She always has fun stories, but also can always be trusted.
Lily: Laurença is a rare find [laughs], because she’s so willing to help people and she is a breathe of fresh air in a place where everyone is looking out for themselves.

In general, what do you value in a friend?
Laurença: Having a friend you can be completely open with, and trust.
Lily: Having someone you can be yourself around with no judgement!

Do you have nicknames for each other? If so what are they?
Laurença: Sometimes I call Lily my assistant to annoy her [laughs].
