Downtown Columbus

Award-winning costume designer Liz Bourgeois dressed and styled actresses, celebrities and athletes from Broadway to Hollywood. Now, she calls Cbus home. She upcycles vintage fabrics and turns them into beautiful and sustainable clothing. Liz recently expanded Team Chipmunk, and we thought you might like a peek in her downtown digs at 281 South Third Street.

What started out as a home business making children's clothing expanded to include a retail store and an active online presence. Liz's collections sold out at showings in New York City, Chicago and Memphis; and in the past three years, Team Chipmunk developed into a national brand featured in publications including Martha Stewart Whole Living.

Now, Team Chipmunk not only offers children's clothing, but Liz launched a women's line too. All items are handmade by Team Chipmunk from upcycled, unique, vintage fabric. She'll even create a one-of-a-kind custom piece for that special party. (Hey, hey, Fourth of July is right around the corner, you know).

Stop by and check out Team Chipmunk, whether you need a gift for a special someone or for yourself. Liz keeps women and kids covered. Hmmmm... wonder if we'll see a men's line come anytime soon?
