Moving in Style
Over the years, I have been blessed to work with some truly extraordinary people. Working with these individuals has inspired me in business but on a personal level as well, and by sharing my experiences, I am hoping to inspire all of you as well.
Liz Nieves is the owner of Ilo Gear, Miami based company that specializes in creating modern, high quality dance and active wear. Liz has worked with the Miami Heat and Marlins dancers, dance teams and cheerleaders from countless high schools as well as universities. Her line has been described as fresh, unique and different and the creations from her studio have been praised and recognized internationally for over 15 years.
Liz is a mom, a philanthropist and creative force, who is, along with her team, pushing the boundaries in active wear industry. Having visited the offices of Ilo Gear, I was able to witness, first hand, the passion and perfectionist mentality with which these garments are created. The main focus of the whole team is the client and how they can bring the clients vision to life while never sacrificing quality and comfort. Ilo Gear has showcased their designs in tradeshows nationwide and has received rave reviews. I was especially impressed with how a growing company provides such great customer service and tailors their approach to individual clients.
Running a successful business is rewarding but at the same time, it takes up a great amount of time from one’s life. As a business owner and mom, Liz is never too busy when it comes to giving back to the community and charities close to her heart. From the Annual Benefit Fashion Show, whos sole organizer is Ilo Gear, to teaming up with Live Like Bella to raise money for the fight against Pediatric Cancer, the Ilo Gear team is always ready to help.
Judi Colins once said: “Do what you love, and you will find the way to get it out to the world.” I do believe that the success of Ilo Gear and managing to grow form local to international, is based on the love, passion and innovation. But a house is only as good as its foundation and the foundation of this wonderful company is a strong and creative woman, who puts her heart and soul into everything she does and that is, the key to success.
