Liz Claiborne glasses set the standard for the elegant woman. Liz Claiborne glasses are elegant, refined, and mature, like a fine burgundy wine. Liz Claiborne herself is a model for all women, rising from obscurity and creating one of the world's most powerful fashion brands.
In the 1960's and 1970's, Claiborne advocated to her employers to design clothing for working women.
Stymied in that effort, she went out on her own and, with Art Ortenberg, Leonard Boxer, and Jerome Chazen, launched her own design company, Liz Claiborne Inc., in 1976.
Liz developed groundbreaking marketing strategies which changed the entire fashion world forever. She insisted that her lines be displayed separate from men's clothing and from other women designer clothing styles. And so for the first time, women shoppers could choose from many types of clothing articles by brand name alone in one location of a department store.
