Twin sisters Lizzie and Kathryn Fortunato created Lizzie Fortunato in 2008 with the intent of creating unique accessories that use unexpected materials and champion handicrafts from a breadth of places and cultures. Lizzie designs the line while Kathryn oversees sales and operations. Lizzie constructs a distinct narrative with each collection, naming each style, and often drawing on historical, artistic, and architectural references as she goes. Fortunato’s designs combine found, reclaimed and precious materials in fashion forward silhouettes. The sisters' brand has become synonymous with unique, ahead of the curve accessories that are influenced by fine art, travel, and artisanal craftwork. The Lizzie Fortunato collection is produced in New York by a team of skilled metal smiths and seamstresses and extreme care goes into each piece.
