Lizzie Parker is a Seattle-based fashion designer specializing in modern knitwear for women with multi-faceted lives. Her recent appearance on the first NBC Fashion Star (March 2012) and as a headliner designer in Fashion Week at the Bellevue Collection’s Independent Fashion Designer Runway show led to sales of her product to legendary retailers Nordstrom, QVC and Macy’s.
Her clothing is designed for the average American woman, who wants to be anything but average – sizing ranging from 0-3X. All of Lizzie’s garments are proudly produced in Los Angeles, CA. As a wife, mother, designer, production manager, fashion show producer, and local philanthropist living and working outside of Seattle, she understands that fashion as to understand the multiple ways that women live and work today.
Having designed everything from the most essential basic “Lizzie Tee” to red carpet looks for Summer Rayne Oakes, Lizzie draws inspiration for her designs from daily life, including her love of heavy metal. Her clothes create a modern wardrobe so women can make the sidewalk their catwalk each and every day. Her Anne Maxi Dress was just worn by Vogue magazine’s Anne Vincent during the major runway event, Front Row Fashion.
Lizzie has co-hosted the Sustainable 1000 radio show and served as Co-Chairman of the Board at WACAP, World Association of Children and Parents. She continues to be an advocate for adoption and better living. She is currently working with Swedish Hospital in Seattle on developing new pediatric programs and raising funds to support those efforts.
