The stats: Born in New York City; has lived in New York for her entire life, currently in the Upper East Side.
Why she loves New York: “It is my favorite city in the world, the energy, the people, the shopping, the food. And the saying is true: New York Never Sleeps! You can get anything you want at any time of day/night.”
In 1997, Liz Lange started her famed maternity fashion line, Liz Lange Maternity, out of a one-room office and embarked on a venture that would change maternity fashions forever. Ten years later, Lange had dressed nearly every pregnant celebrity, secured licensing deals with Nike and Target, of which Liz Lange Maternity is the exclusive department at all Target location, and opened three flagship boutiques.
Although Lange sold her wildly successful business, she continues to be the face of the celebrated maternity brand.
