You may know Liz Lange from her days as editor of Vogue…or perhaps you wore her creations when you were pregnant with your darling babies. Liz dressed Julia Roberts and many other stars when they were pregnant and treading the “Red Carpet”. The Liz Lange line of maternity clothes sold at Target is going strong.
GreatTalent.com, which represents Lange’s speaking tours, says
“Liz Lange, founder and President of Liz Lange Maternity, is a fashion and retail pioneer. Armed with the philosophy that women should look and feel beautiful during pregnancy, she has single-handedly revolutionized maternity style and society’s perception of pregnant women, in nine short years. Today, the high-end Liz Lange Maternity Collection is sold at Liz’s five Liz Lange Maternity boutiques, the Liz Lange e-commerce website and via national and international wholesale business.”
Today, February 19, 2010, Liz Lange finally brings her designs to her many fans who are no longer “with child”.
Liz has a fantastic attitude about her customers. She proudly shows her maternity wear on very pregnant women. That is touchingly realistic. And did we mention Liz’s line of diaper bags?
The main reason (among many reasons) that we are writing about Liz is that for her new sportswear line, sold exclusively at HSN.com, she has a FIT MODEL in EVERY SIZE!! Is there any better way to achieve perfect fit for many women? We are pleased and impressed. No surprise that Liz Lange is the woman to demand this perfection.

Tuesday February 9, 2010 6:08 PM By Barbara Schuler: “Can’t say how many times I’ve walked by a chic, stylish something by Liz Lange and lamented that you had to be pregnant to wear it. Apparently I was not alone. The designer has listened to the call and will introduce her first NOT maternity collection for spring. “
“Bearing the tagline, ‘Life’s a party. Are you dressed for it?,’ Lange’s collection consists of brightly colored sportswear pieces including tunics, scarf tops, beaded knit tops, pants and leggings, none of which will retail for more than $60. ”
“Though she sold her brand to Bluestar Alliance last year, Lange remains involved with her multiple lines. She’s also started a side gig with her sister Jane Wagman, a Website called Shopafrolic.com. On it, the two women share what they’ve bought and want to buy online, trading barbs and comments, in the fashion, accessories and beauty arenas.”
Shopafrolic.com is a great window of opportunity to look into the mind of a woman who is an incredible success in this world of fashion.
It is also a fun-read website. Not only are there many fashion tips and Buy/Don’t Buy tips, there are also wonderful tidbits of fashion wisdom… such as
“… a few months ago, a terrible thing happened. The economy crashed. And people stopped shopping. Some went cold turkey. Not us. As the proud daughters of a full-blown shopaholic, we know that quitting is not the answer. Quitting is never the answer. If ever there was a time to shop, it is now. (Really! Have you seen the sales out there?!). Yes, it is up to us, girls. If we don’t help the economy get back on its feet, who will?”
A perfect way to learn more about body shapes, read the book on dressing while pregnant, Liz Lange’s Maternity Style: How to Look Fabulous During the Most Fashion-Challenged Time
