Lizz Wasserman
, Los Angeles

Chapter: LL LA


Lizz Wasserman, designer of Popomomo, an eco friendly line of sustainable and sophisticated pieces, took a circuitous route towards design. Lizz got a degree in sociology at UW-Madison, dropped out for a year to teach English in the Czech Republic (where she met her honey seven years ago this week:), became a fulbright finalist, and admitted to herself and her family that she was heads over vintage heels for fashion, not academia. She lucked into a design job with Urban Outfitters, and later designed knits for Free People for four years. Moving to NY she designed for American Rag, and has recently relocated to LA. She has done silhouettes and artwork for t-shirt companies, bands and branding for several companies as well.

Popomomo started as a creative release from her mainstream design jobs and has become a well received line of architecturally draped organic and sustainable pieces made positively in downtown LA. In 2008, Popomomo was nominated for the Gen Art New Garde LA award, and is now rep'ed by fellow Ladies Lotto member Sarah Cirkiel at Pitch Control PR. Popomomo is currently carried in stores across the country, and is growing each season in creativity and numbers. Currently, she is gearing up for a trunk show in New York on the 19th and for designing the next season.

Lizz contributes to the Ladies Lotto blog under the name Clothesminded, and does the blog www.materialconcern.com with a friend, and occasionally makes big messes attempting to dye fabric with vegetable dye in her yard in Silver Lake.

Thanks Lizz for all that you do for Ladies Lotto! You are one super talented woman!!
