Lisa Brown lives with her family on the Gold Coast, Australia, designing and creating her globally recognised brand Lisa Brown Designs A gorgeous woman, friend and colleague, we asked Lisa if she would “take 5” and share a little about herself….
Bio: From humble beginnings, Lisa Brown’s own love of fashion continues to blossom into her burgeoning business. The eponymous label was originally born from Lisa’s passion and creative flair in creating her own individual fashion looks. Inspired by vintage collectables, fluid fabrics and the unusually beautiful that Lisa finds in the most unlikely places, Lisa was often approached to find out “where she got that” from curious, fashion savvy individuals.
Commissioned originally to create one off pieces for clients, Lisa’s designs were winning “word of mouth” acclaim and in summer 2006, Lisa embarked upon her biggest challenge to date, the launch of an exclusive, limited edition collection. Lisa has turned a passionate hobby into a fledgling fashion empire with stores all around Australia now stocking her ‘Australian made’ label. Her signature designs are individual, feminine and feel as beautiful on the skin as they look on the body. A combination of hand washable silks, exquisite detail and generous use of fabric, Lisa Brown is a label that women of all ages, shapes and sizes will love to wear.
Lisa’s designs have graced catwalks at Sydney Fashion Week, won the Supreme Award at the NRA Australia Fashion awards and are regularly lauded by fashion press but more importantly to Lisa; real women, who chose fashion that reflects their own unique individuality and style – just like her.
Beautiful Lisa has an ancestry of English, Scottish and Irish which you can see in her blue eyes, blonde hair and fair skin. Living an active life balancing family, business, travel, surfing and social commitments, Lisa relies on a simple but effective skin & health care routine.

When you are the centre of a young family and a business that is creative but committed to deadlines, you don’t have time to be sick or too tired. The energy of a daily Green drink, with an abundance of minerals, vitamins, enzymes and phytonutrients is a delicious start to her day or an afternoon energy pick up. Lisa’s personal time out and connection to her creative spirit is surfing and walking her dog on the beach. The 5 minutes it takes her to blend her favourite green smoothie or simply shake and go with her green drink means she is out the door making the most of an early morning date with the beach and a sunrise.
