Artist Bio:
Elizabeth Frenchman is an apparel designer who adheres to the "less is more" philosophy as well as god being in the details. Born in Cleveland, she earned a BA in fine art (printmaking) from Rutgers which ushered her into a long career as a book designer in Boston and New York. A subsequent MLS from Pratt allowed a switch to materials librarianship. Many courses from both FIT and Central Saint Martins (London) prepared her for launching a sleepwear line, Fichu Bedwear, set for Spring 2019.

Artist Statement:
In architecture, in fashion, in print, the designer must listen to her materials. Design serves a purpose: to shelter, to clothe, to facilitate harmony with nature yet harness her for knowledge, beauty and utility. In other words, it's got to feel good and fit nice so you can get a good night's sleep.
