"Fashion Forward, High Quality, and Affordable Garments for the Woman of Today"
Introducing...Elizabeth Carson Racker
“Fashion forward, High Quality, and Affordable Garments are the core characteristics of my designs.”
I’m a Womenswear Designer with a philosophy to always apply the highest standards of quality, creativity, honesty, and innovation. Continuous research allows me to stay in front of the latest trends while applying the highest standards of fabrication and constantly creating new and fresh silhouettes for the fashion forward woman.
My aesthetic is pulled from Ethnic culture, local influence, and a soulful movement. I am also inspired by music, art, dance, nature, photography... Life!
I’m a native of Tampa, FL, born into an eclectic family of talents and found my passion in fashion. I first acknowledged this love at age twelve when I attended my first fashion production at an Ebony Fashion Fair show. My love for fashion continued through high school and finally blossomed in college. I attended one of the top fashion design schools in the nation, Savannah College of Art and Design. During my years at SCAD I truly found my love working with knit jersey and was highly recognized for my work, by the likes of Eric Gaskin, Andre Leon Talley, and David Rodriguez just to name a few.
After graduating and earning my Bachelors in Fashion Design, I began my career with Ebony Fashion Fair as their Wardrobe Assistant and featured designer. After leaving Ebony I continued to push my brand in Los Angeles, CA; Atlanta, GA, with Atlanta International Fashion Week; Belize City, Belize, with Continental Airlines Charity Event, Toys for Tots; NY, New York with BET Rip the Runway; NY, New York with Harlem Fashion Week; Miami, FL, and most recent New York Fashion Week.
My plan is to continue to design and push for excellence & success, which in return will earn me many more opportunity to further my career within the fashion industry. It is important that my clientele can relate to my design aesthetics and embrace the pure excitement, joy, and confidence that will come from my collections".
