New York Magazine: Elizabeth Sweetheart

Writer, Joanna Goddard, interviewed our favorite lady in green, fabric designer Elizabeth Sweetheart for New York Magazine. Check out some excerpts from the the article below and the full article HERE.

Why green?

I’m from Nova Scotia, where green is in your surroundings. I missed nature when I moved to New York. I started wearing green nail polish, and it spread all over me.

Tell me about your style.

I always wear overalls. I have 30 pairs. I buy children’s sizes from GapKids and Chadwick’s. And I dye everything—my Nike sneakers, my underwear. I can’t fall asleep unless I’m wearing green.

Do you wear green to work?

Every day. I’ve been in the design business over 44 years.
How do strangers react?

Many people say, “Oh! That’s my favorite color.” On 42nd Street, tourists ask to take my photo. I take the F train and know everyone on it—kids, Japanese girls with green in their hair, all the junkies. I’ve never had a negative experience.

Advanced Style Trend: Bold Lipstick

This wonderful woman came into the New Museum again, wearing one of her original hand knit, high fashion sweaters. She is influenced by contemporary design and makes each sweater purely out of cashmere.

When I asked her about what inspires her look, including her bold lipstick choice she replied, " the 1940's"

Looking back on some of my favorite shots, I noticed that many of the "advanced in style" favor a similarly adventurous choice in lipstick. This throwback to the 1940's is a glamorous addition to an already spirited look. Check out some more examples below:

Mister Mort took another great shot of Sweetheart, the lady in green. He writes, "Sweetheart wears only green for the last 7 years. She feels it makes people happier and more positive. She is an incredible artist."
