I know my wife wears some items with her name on them. She was quite an innovator for working women everywhere.

I LOVE her clothes. I have a Liz Claiborne golf shirt on right now. She did a lot for the clothing industry. I will not throw anything of hers away as they last forever. May she rest in peace.

I've worn a lot of her clothes. She had some wonderful younger looking suits in the 80s and 90s.

Until the end of March I worked at an Elisabeth store part-time. It is amazing how many brands LCI owns, I didn't know until I started working there. Liz herself wasn't crazy about the direction the company took after her retirement. In fact, she was quoted fairly recently as not wearing the clothes herself much anymore. Now that there is a new CEO as of last year, it's changing even more. Some of the changes are interesting, some are seen as troublesome. They're throwing a lot of emphasis to things like Juicy Couture and Lucky. For example, the reason I don't work at Elisabeth any more is because they closed ALL Elisabeth stores. Why? In the words of the CEO ... "Plus-size women just don't really care enough about what they look like to buy higher-end clothes." :rolleyes:
