For Liz Bang, design has held lifelong appeal. As a little girl,” she says, “I would easily get bored doing the same chores or practicing the same classical sheet music over and over again. But, something about constant change and evolution in art and fashion was challenging and really intriguing.”
Liz lived in Korea and Hong Kong before landing at the Rhode Island School of Design to study apparel. She channels that worldliness into her clothing. “I am inspired by many different things,” she explains, “Cultures, lifestyles, friends, fabrics and meeting new people.” Now, Liz lives in New York and is making her StyleWeek debut. For this collection, she says, “My inspiration and color palette originates from tropical flowers.” Her Fall/Winter 2013 collection will use black as an anchor for bright, tropical accent colors – what she calls a “polished, urbane fall and winter look.” It’s also a departure for Liz’s signature style. “It will be the most colorful collection for me yet!” Liz Bang will be presenting at 8pm on Saturday, February 2, at the Providence Biltmore.
