It might be the name, although it’s more likely the energy, but everywhere she goes, someone knows Lizzie Brown. Lizzie moved to Los Angeles 14 years ago and got her start in lifestyle PR representing surf and sportswear brands. In 2007, at 23 years old, she opened her first PR agency, Dell et Ruhs. In that time she is credited with launching Lorna Jane in the US, as well as Carbon38 and NUX activewear. In 2014, Lizzie opened shop with her husband and launched Kamala Collective, an agency that specialized in app development, PR and marketing for fitness and wellness brands, through which she launched brands like Fabletics, among others. In 2017, with her husband, Lizzie co-founded the first ever “yoga alarm clock” — the Yoga Wake Up app, which Apple subsequently featured in its’ “New Apps We Love”.
“You have to fail to win… You’re gonna fail multiple times before you’re successful, so it really is just part of the ride.”
