ANNA LIZZIO - TOTALLY UNIQUE
A N N A L I Z Z I O C O L L E C T I O N
Textile designer. Anna Lizzio, set up her clothing shop in Tetbury three years ago sourcing unusual designers from all over the world and producing her own necklaces and belts. Now ALC has evolved into a womenswear collection which she has sold in to London shops.
Inspired by the colours and spirit of Argentina where the clothes are made, Anna works with her cousin, a Central St. Martins graduate, in Wiltshire and Buenos Aires. The collection consists of unique prints on unusual fabrics. It combines classic shapes with a colourful contemporary twist, paying great attention to detail and finishing and selling at a very good price point.
The new autumn collection, now in the shop and online, includes: HANNOH, MICHAEL STARS, ZYGA, DEEDAY, GWYNEDDS, DESIGNERSMARKET, UMO Wellies, STITCH'S, IRWIN AND JORDAN, COLEUR POURPRE, 0039 ITALY, and HUNKYDORY.
The website is updated bi-weekly so keep checking for new arrivals!
