Liz Black… conceptual statement pieces for the modern fashionista
Following her graduation from Central Saint Martins College and a highly-acclaimed Press Show, Venezuelan-born Liz Black chose to set up her own label to give her the freedom to express her individual creativity. Having gained experience working alongside Emilio de la Morena, Elisa Palomino and Diane von Furstenberg in London and New York, she created Liz Black in 2010.
The Liz Black label reflects conceptual creativity with an elegant aesthetic. Its focus is on wearable statement pieces with a timeless appeal, emphasising chic and impeccably tailored structures that complement the feminine silhouette. The Liz Black woman is sophisticated, elegant and cosmopolitan. A daring dresser, she is independent, empowered and fashion-forward.
Liz's designs have appeared in all of the major fashion publications, both nationally and internationally. She was selected by Roland Mouret as a Semi-Finalist for the prestigious Fashion Fringe Awards 2011 and was recently named by Vogue Italia's Senior Fashion Editor Sara Maino as a 'Vogue Talent'. Most recently Liz was nominated for the Scottish Fashion Awards in the 'Creative Excellence' category.
In the past year Liz has been involved in two special projects. She designed a 9-piece capsule collection for the River Island Design Forum initiative, to be sold in its flagship stores in the UK and abroad, as well as online, from September 2014, and she was invited to participate in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow by showcasing her latest collection during the Closing Ceremony in August.
Liz’s collections have appeared on the catwalk in London, Paris, Istanbul and Warsaw. She is rapidly gaining a celebrity following, with her designs being worn by the pop icon Lady Gaga, top model Amber Le Bon, TV presenters Eda Taspinar and Izzy Lawrence, actress and film director Alice Lowe and singers Sophie Blackburn, Alexandra Burke and the Pussycat Dolls' Kimberley Wyatt.
Liz Black is currently stocked in the UK, Italy, China, Hong Kong, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Qatar.
