Liz Ricketts

Conceptual Director, Of Rags

Liz joined the Of Rags team in January 2011 as their fashion consultant. After graduating from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in fashion design, Liz marked the start of her career with a little bike trip. She joined the Environmental Justice Foundation in London on their Great Fashion Cycle from London to Paris. Her bike ride raised money to stop child labor and the use of harmful pesticides in the cotton industry. At 4 am, a month before her senior collection was due, this seemed like the perfect way to set a standard for her future in the fashion industry.<br /> <br /> She was right! After over 300 miles of suffering for sustainable fashion, there is no turning back. Since moving to NYC in 2010, Liz has freelanced as a designer, stylist and consultant focusing on projects that empower the individual and amplify the energy of community. When Liz met Branson she saw that Of Rags was successfully turning the potential energy of two parallel worlds into one massive movement. Of Rags has since provided Liz with the platform she needed to define her perspective and tell her own story.
