Sticky Baby is a unique brand created by 21-year-old Amanda Litzinger, who was raised in Arizona and is now living in New York. Amanda originally learned to sew as a kid, and as a teenager she made her own clothes and wore them to school to make it more fun. In summer 2012, Sticky Baby was established on Etsy.com. For Amanda, making clothes is an important way to release energy, convey style and to have fun.
Amanda Litzinger: New York City at the moment.
AL: I draw inspiration from fashion magazines and the chic older women of whichever city I’m living in at the time.
AL: I like to see my clothing on girls who are brilliant and confident. These girls have their own sense of what is “cool” and are not afraid to wear it. Rather than being stressed out about trends, my ideal customer has fun as often as possible every day and she is full of life.
AL: A favorite item I have made is the “It’s My Party” jacket.
AL: In the next year I will be developing my craftsmanship to create a more sophisticated product. I would also like to have a consistent team working with me (photographer, models) for the brand to grow more steadily. In five years I would like to have an online shop off of the Etsy platform and be so busy selling clothes that I’m not able to have a day job.
AL: My favorite trends at this time are unexpected textures and wacky embellishments.
AL: My favorite fall shows here in New York were Ashish, Opening Ceremony and J.W. Anderson.
AL: I adore many of the other shops on Etsy, but my favorite is easily Napkin Items. The shop owner, Courtney, is completely clever and skilled.
AL: A hybrid of Madonna, Chloe Sevigny and George Harrison would be my ultimate style icon.
