Liz Claiborne, Designer, Dies at 78 – New York Times

I wore a lot of Liz Claiborne clothes when I first started my professional career. More sepcifically, I wore the Elisabeth line since it was one of the best women’s (large size) lines available at that time. The clothes were classically tailored with fresh colors – no muumuu’s or tent dresses. I wore them until they wore out but they rarely went out of style. She respected the working woman.

Reading the obit, I didn’t realize that her company also owns Dana Buchman, Juicy Couture, Ellen Tracy and Lucky Brand jeans. Good for her.
