Lives in New York City
Liz was born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. The daughter of a garmento, she grew up in her father's clothing factory, sewing on labels and falling in love with fashion at a very early age.
She dreamed of becoming a model.
Not one to shy away from her passions, Liz traveled through the Middle East and Europe, finding modeling gigs all over the world before settling back in New York in the early eighties.
Beyond her stunning good looks, Liz has been described as having fearless fresh style. Dancing to the beat of her own drum, she mixes Supreme and Mimi Plange, YSL and Cos. Liz's amazing style has been shot by all the top style bloggers and she has been featured in The New York Times Style Column on multiple occasions. When Liz is not being stopped on the street for a photo by all the cool kids, she spends her time making beautiful over the top drop dead gorgeous one of a kind jewelry and shopping the chicest boutiques in NYC.
I met Liz Friedman through fashion blogger/photographer and friend, Mangue Banzima. Liz quickly became a muse. Women who are also beautiful on the inside only become more so as time goes on. You can't help but fall in love with her witty charm, and her ability to mix high, low, edge and sophistication. Liz Friedman is the definition of an elegant rockstar.
Liz is wearing our multi fur and wool blend coat.
From April 9th through May 2018, get to know some beautiful and inspirational women as we launch and reveal the stunning portraits shot by photographer Emmanuel André for our new women's online platform for disruptive women of style, "Mimi + Me".
How would you like to die?
Liz Friedman: Oh I know exactly how I would like to die (Smiles…) Doing lapse at the Ritz swimming pool; I couldn’t think of any better way to go…
If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing what would that be?
Liz Friedman: If there was a person I will come back as, because the kind of person she was, I would say Eleanor Roosevelt. Because she’s a woman who rose above her own background and she devoted her life to serving people and as a result, the world is a much better place
Who are your heroes in real life?
Liz Friedman: I would have to say Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt as well again for the same reasons. Because you know Nietzsche once said: “the important thing in life is not to have courage of your convictions, but to have the courage to over throw your convictions. They were compassionate and caring people who were leaders.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Liz Friedman: My greatest achievement is that I’m still here after 76 years. The fact that I’m here, healthy and able to do a project like this in this stage of life I feel is quite an achievement. So I’m proud of that!
Thank you so much Liz, for your Beauty!
