So there’s a big difference between LIZ ASH (the blogger and fashionista) and LIZ ASH L.L.C - although they both form the LIZ ASH brand. The woman in the picture above is the person known as Liz Ash and her namesake studio aka Liz Ash L.L.C. is a creative enterprise which includes multiple people; alas, one is a fashion influencer, blogger, and artist (a one woman army) that will eventually die like everyone else and the other is a boutique atelier that’s made up of a team of some of the coolest, most incredibly talented artists in the world and can live on in the world if it wants to. As we like to say, it’s not about living forever, but creating something that will. So now you know my purpose or legacy and maybe one day you’ll see it’s creations IRL as you pass by a billboard, or as you’re cruising on the Subway looking at the words and images all around you. I have to say, my team is the BEST. If it weren’t for the dedicated, amazing, and truly beautiful people who make our clients sing in the rain, dance through the grocery store, and realize the power of branding through and through. Those red-soled stilettos you see as you walk down the street, that’s what we’re talking about: a brand, a world, a symbol that can be recognized and despite having a product that’s - in essence - a black patent leather stiletto - by adding that red-sole it propelled itself into a world-renowned brand. This is our art and our magic. But I’m getting ahead of myself, let’s go back to Liz Ash: that magical phenomenon created when a creative consultancy and a creative blogger combine to create a new kind of brand: an autonomous being effervescing creativity, a fondness for co-creation, and a rather magical magnetism from every angle; a lioness of a brand that smells like a melange of citrus and floral; a brand that sounds like the universal “ommmmmmmm” who implements a vision where co-creation, collaboration, and diligent step-by-step processes are balanced by a-type business acumen, organization, and a new style of client and agency communication which has allowed us to create, launch, and maintain over 25 successful brands to date. WooooHooo!!

As a smart business woman, I do not need to take credit for all of my work, you just have to pay for it :) Therefore, I retain privacy policies with clients that do not allow me to showcase my relationship with their brand but I can tell you that there are some MAY-JOR players and a lot of minor ones as well.. But here's some stuff that I can show!
