By Kristina T Paunovic
November 13, 2004


 


CFM: Lisa tell us abot your personal style when creating a collection?

Lisa: My love affair, is highly tailored, highly detailed garments
that are as functional as they are breathtaking. To me, fashion is no different than architecture.


CFM: Your ideas are unique,share the moment how did you invisioned
"THE REVERSABLE DRESS"?

Lisa: I'm constantly trying to invent ways to add beneficial options with
comfort. Environment of changing, urban-sprawling world the dress is also called out of the office and into the opera!I thus wanted to find a solution that allowed people to not have to drag their whole closet around with them. This is how the reversable dress was concieved.


CFM: What is a NO NO in our daily clothing?

Lisa: Fashion has always been an absurdity to me-we ornate ourselves to the point of restriction.When I think of people wearing tops or pants they can't even bendover in it makes me laugh. I cope with our ever-changing environment and inspire others to go along the same route too.


CFM: History makes who we are today, tell us about yours?

Lisa: My motivation sprung out of the fact that I am an avid cyclist, and have had to come up with ways for myself to bicycle throughout the city comfortably and well protected, yet looking appropriate for the occasion that my final destination brings, be it riding to work or to a dinner party. I thus wanted to find a solution that allowed people to not have to drag their whole closet around with them. This is how the reversable dress was concieved.
