LA has a diverse cast of characters. Whether it's the characters with stirring stories or interesting occupations or the people who are just simply characters, this town has them all.

Today's subject is Lizz Wasserman.

Lizz is a Highland Park-based designer whose clothing line, popomomo uses organic and/or sustainable fabrics. Wassernan's line, which is produced, designed and sampled here in LA, is the antithesis of disposable fashion -- focusing only on producing unique and new designs.

Prior to founding popomomo in 2007, the Milwaukee native designed for Urban Outfitters and Free People. Lizz, who has previously lived in Prague, Philadelphia and Brooklyn, "finds LA to be the perfect weird, contradictory, and magically tragic backdrop to inspire popomomo."
