About

Lizzie Fortunato is a NYC-based accessories line designed by Elizabeth Fortunato and operated by her twin sister, Kathryn. Lizzie’s statement jewelry fuses found, reclaimed, and precious materials (think coco bolo wood from Central America and seashells collected on a remote Costa Rican beach) in fashion forward silhouettes. The sisters’ brand has become synonymous with unique, ahead-of-the-curve accessories and exquisite craftsmanship, evident in their immaculate hand-crafted collars and leather goods collection (launched for FW11), which features Italian leather bags with stunning Indian beading.

Lizzie Fortunato has been featured on the covers of Women’s Wear Daily, W Korea, and Vogue China and on the pages of Vogue, British Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and The New York Times. The label has twice been recognized by Harper’s Bazaar Magazine as ‘one of the world’s most promising accessories lines’, and participated in their Accessories Bazaar at Lincoln Center during September 2010 NYC Fashion week. Lizzie Fortunato has been tapped by CFDA-nominated VPL & SUNO for repeat runway collaborations.

The Lizzie Fortunato line is available at Kirna Zabete, Five Story, Castor and Pollux and Maryam Nassir Zadeh in New York, Ten Over Six and Jenni Kayne in Los Angeles, Journal Standard in Tokyo, Harvey Nichols in Dubai and other high-end retailers internationally.
