From her childhood in Nogent-sur-Marne, Liza Korn recollects her first experiences with clothing as something of a knightmare with an allergy to wool. Although she already had a good eye, and a personal style, as shown in her first ‘collection’ featuring her dolls as models, wearing garments lovely taped and stapled. Born into a family of tailors, fashion was in her blood, but in her true spirit of contradiction, this was not a path she intended to follow.
Liza successfully studied textiles and applied arts, and kept a taste for exhibitions and happenings. Attracted by cultural affairs, her first job was with the communications department at her local museum. Missing the creative process, and a strong desire to return to fashion resulted in the production of her first collection in Spring/Summer 2000. A playful collection with pleasure and enjoyment at its heart, and a philosophy to entertain.
More collections have since followed, and several expositions, such as Rue des Archives in March 2001, in a courtyard containing accessories floating from balloons. Inside, the space was transformed, with gold ceilings like ‘the Palace’ and turqouise and purple carpets. The exhibiting designers, champagne in one hand, pizza in the other, like they do in the windows of Amsterdam. Another exhibition in June 2001 at Galerie Jean Mermoz, saw the unveiling of a series of T shirts featuring the drawings of Rachel, a young autistic girl who has since been able to take a course in drawing and sculpture
In 2001, Liza opened her boutique/atelier at 19 Rue Beaurepaire in the 10th arrondisement of Paris. Between being featured in magazines such as FRENCH, DEALER, FLAVOUR, ELLE and MADAME FIGARO, and on several fashion blogs, Liza has built an international clientele. In 2007, Liza created her first Childrenswear collection, SWEET LIZA, and in 2008, added a line of soft furnishings for babies.
Sweet liza has become a popular name in the Childrenswear market, captivating magazines such as MILK, VOGUE and EXTRA SMALL with its vintage lace and rock spirit.
In 2009 a collaboration with Bensimon resulted in a limited edition collection of the famous tennis shoes. Liberty prints and bright colours give an individual style to children.
