As an accomplished film and TV costume designer, Fenton Fox founder Lizzie Cook has had her hands in the creative field for the better of 2 decades. She studied with an accomplished seamstress who taught Lizzie the intricate techniques needed to specialize in lingerie and swimwear.
Forever evolving and searching for inspiration, she created Fenton Fox, an eco-friendly swimwear line for independent thinkers and troublemakers ( YOU! ).

Having grown up near the lakes in Michigan, Lizzie has always had strong ties to anything in and around water. Today, Fenton Fox strives to be as low-impact as possible doing "what we can when we can" to avoid the disastrous environmental effects of fast fashion. Our mission is to reduce the waste in oceans, making them nicer for you to swim in ( in your Fenton Fox suit of course! ). Using custom-printed fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles, we utilize every inch of our materials in a further effort to reduce waste.
Learn more about OUR FABRICS
When Lizzie isn't designing swimwear or costuming, she finds time to spend with her (NEW!) hunky husband and handsome pup, Roky exploring Chicago and the lakes of Michigan, while listening to old punk records and searching for the best thin-crust pizza around.
Chanel is the newest addition to the Fenton Fox story. She's the brains behind our new website, and is here to help you with any customer service thangs. With her background in vintage styling, Chanel is our vintage curator, sourcing all the far out goods you will find in our showroom space ( COMING SOON!). California raised, this Fenton Fox travels to the West Coast frequently to dig for unique vintage treasures, say hello to the sunshine + sand and bring back loads of beachy inspiration for our upcoming collections. She's also our go-to beauty guru and in-house hair and makeup artist. When she's not hanging at Fenton Fox, she can be found snuggling with her alien dog Bruce, cruisin with her husband in their old Cutlass Supreme and talking to her plant friends.
Damn, we're a couple of babes who know how to multi-task, amiright?
Together, we have a passion for mixing textures and patterns, vintage with new, cherishing old memories and a devotion to making new ones.
Let us create a style unique to you.
Wear our suits wherever your adventures take you.
