Lisa Ramfjord Elstun is the President, CEO & Founder of the FDC Denver and LRE Couture LLC. She is an award-winning bridal and lingerie couturiere whose passion is to help others succeed in building their professional brands. She was awarded Westword's 2014 Mastermind of Fashion/Design and is listed in their 100 Colorado Creatives. The FDC also received recognition in the Best of Denver 2014 for Best Fashion-Supporting Space.
As a founding member of the Denver Design Incubator board, she realized that even though designers had access to industrial equipment and basic business concepts at DDI, not all wanted to work through the multitude of tasks required to prepare a collection for manufacture, didn't have access to prescreened professionals to set up their business and needed help developing a brand message.
Fashion Design Center Denver meets the client where they are in the brand-building process to make their vision and future come to life.
In addition to couture design, Lisa's experience as a start up entrepreneur of 4 brands, CEO, medical educator, program administrator and department chair, accreditation consultant and author gives her a unique skill set to build businesses.
