 Comics Style with Substance: Savvy

Lily is the older cousin of Sofia and the main antagonist in Style with Substance: Savvy. She is currently studying in a local fashion design school.


Early Life

Ever since they were little, Lily was the one responsible with Sofia's bratty and spoilt nature. It was shown when Lily influenced Sofia 'not to mingle with peasants' as the two of them belong to the rich society, and thought it is right to look down on the poor.[1]

During Lily's college years, she was known to be the wealthiest student in her class. Throughout her school days she was known for secretly buying other people's clothing designs until getting caught by Iris, who then reported Lily's wrongdoings to their school's professor. In the end, Lily was forced to retain and developed a hatred towards Iris ever since.[2]

Lily's initial appearance

Lily is a young, teenage woman with long, wavy coral pink hair gathered on the back of her head, coral pink eyes and a mole on the left side of her chin. Lily bears a curvaceous body and has striking resemblance with her aunt (Sofia's mom), and younger cousin Sofia.

Additionally, Lily does not consistently wear the same type of outfit. However, Lily seemed to wear forms of leopard print clothing. The different clothes that she wears are considered fashionable and vogue, as her clothings capture the attention of the public.[3] Lily also dons a fair amount of jewelry; sets of earrings that comes with various colors and types, and both of her wrists bear bracelets (mostly gold in color). Her fingernails are spotted manicured and polished dark pink.


Lily is a wealthy young woman and the richest in her class. Similar to Sofia, they both possessed some bad qualities; both are spoilt, bratty, self-centered and are spendthrifts.[4] She is also rather competitive, and is willing to do anything to win against Iris in the fashion design competition, even if it involves cheating.[5][6]

Amoral and egocentric, Lily controls her own cousin Sofia and tends to bring up the wager that Sofia made with Candy JEM[7] whenever Sofia shows concerns to Lily's actions. Lily was willing to cheat and do whatever it takes to seek success in her plans in sabotaging Iris and winning the fashion design competition, and also a way to manipulate her cousin into following her orders and restraining her from doing things that defy her schemes.




When Sofia threatened Lily to return the money she used to buy her clothing, Lily's father appeared in her thought and she remembered that her father had stopped her credit card service.

Mrs. Kwek

Mrs. Kwek is Lily's aunt.


Sofia is Lily’s younger cousin. Lily and Sofia had been really close since they were really young and Lily was the cause of Sofia's snobbish attitude.

Mr. Kwek

Due to the fact that Lily's uncle is not shown in the series, the relationship between Lily and Mr. Kwek is currently unknown.



Iris had always thought Lily was snobbish, but since she accidentally found out that Lily had been claiming clothing designs from other products as her own, she reported the incident to the professor, and Lily was forced to repeat a year at college. Lily hated Iris ever since, and she tried to sabotage her performance at the fashion contest.

Iris' past with Lily

The incident of Lily copying others' fashion designs being reported to the professor by Iris marked the beginning of Lily and Iris' rivalry.
