TELL US ABOUT ‘LISA SAYS GAH’ AND HOW IT ALL CAME ABOUT?
I launched Lisa Says Gah in early 2015 after moving from Los Angeles to San Francisco. I started with an inspirational blog, now called “Look”. I then began reaching out to independent designers that were carving their own path. I took it a step further with interviews, to connect the consumer with the product. I started Lisa Says Gah because I wanted to create a space that went beyond just “shop” – I wanted a shop that used fashion to build a community of creative, insightful women.

WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THE BRAND’S NAME?
The point is that “Gah” is anything you want it to be. To me, it derives from the interest and excitement of the unknown or undiscovered. Everything we present has us saying “Gah!” first.
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?
The usual myriad of emails, a shoot, meetings with the team, posting on social media, and planning for the next seasons.
HOW DO YOU TAKE YOUR COFFEE?
I have an industrial Bunn coffee maker at home. I drink a cup first thing in the morning, and I take it black.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN THE BRANDS YOU STOCK?
Elements of a fresh new design, a vintage reference, sustainable practices, a woman behind the brand.
FAVOURITE ITEM ON LSG AT THE MOMENT?
Our Toni Maxi Dress, fruit earrings, and a classic Gah! Tote are all my summer must-haves.
TELL US WHAT’S NEXT – BUSINESS OR PERSONAL – FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR?
I’m pregnant, so life is going to change big time come January 🙂
