Liza Deyrmenjian, CEO of AFINGO, hails from Vancouver Canada, where, at the age of 19, she launched her first apparel production venture, Arteenelle Manufacturing. Five years later, the business employed 45 tradesmen and women in a 9000 sq. ft. production facility. In pursuit of a new creative outlet, Liza then combined her business sense with her love of fashion, consulting as a wardrobe designer for over 30 commercials and feature films.
After selling her second manufacturing facility in 2003, Liza moved to New York City where she was sought after as a speaker and an apparel consultant, and where she created a curriculum for new design entrepreneurs looking to grow their business from sketch to sale. Today, Liza is intent on changing how fashion does business with the launch AFINGO.com and the AFINGO Fashion Forum, and by reaching a global audience through international trade events and frequent speaking engagements. http://www.afingo.com
