Pronunciation: Liz Clay-Born
Liz Claiborne was as shrewd a businesswoman as she was a designer. Established in 1976, Liz Claiborne, Inc. started off as a line of moderately-priced sportswear for women. The brand soon appealed widely to the working woman with its streamlined and silhouetted pieces. Claiborne also revolutionized the department store shopping experience as she was one of the very first designers to demand that her collection be sold together, in one space. Isaac Mizrahi is currently the designer for the Liz Claiborne’s line, Liz Claiborne New York.
