Liz Lange with her son and daughter.
A household name in maternity, Liz Lange needs little introduction. She saved us from maternity smocks and muumuus, and was one of the first designers who showed us that pregnancy could be fashionable.
In addition to being a great designer, Liz is an activist, a role model and a philanthropist. She goes above and beyond in her communities, doing great things for women, children and families. She’s down to earth and a really nice person – Liz is the real deal.
Ali Wing: What is your motto?
Liz Lange: I have many mottos: “Life is a party — are you dressed for it?” “Until someone does something new, no one thinks its a good idea.” “Life’s what you make it, so let’s make it rock!”
AW: What inspires you?
LL: My children inspire me. They are so kind, funny and smart and my daughter already has her own sense of style.
AW: What color are you loving right now?
LL: I am loving all shades of blue.
AW: What are you currently reading?
LL: The Help by Kathryn Stockett, and I can’t put it down!
AW: What’s your favorite city/location/destination?
LL: NYC – where I grew up and am now raising my children is my favorite city in the world and it’s my home. But I love Rome, Capri and Paris to visit.
Beautiful Capri, one of Liz Lange's fave vacation spots.
AW: Who is your favorite composer, or what is your favorite music genre?
LL: I love all types of music from opera, classical to top 40. I am a huge Verdi and Tchaikovsky fan, but then again I adore Lady Gaga and the Black Eyed Peas!
AW: What was your most favorite baby gift you received?
LL: Personalized Burp cloths with my children’s names on them (my daughter is 9 and she still likes to sleep with hers!).
AW: What was the baby product you couldn’t live without?
LL: Wipes! I used them on my children when they were babies, and we still use them.
And please complete the following:
…make(s) me laugh.
My children make me laugh (they are so funny), but so do Alec Baldwin, Martin Short, Steve Carell and Tina Fey.
My proudest moment in parenting was…
When other parents tell me how polite my children are when they are over (it’s also my most shocked moment!).
