Liebes often stated she avoided designing for fashion because she objected to its fickle, inconsistent nature, yet her designs for the influential Bonnie Cashin reinforce the timeless nature of her textiles and her commitment to functional fabrics for active women. Her handwoven fabrics were used by high-end fashion designers such as Adrian and Pauline Trigère, but she also created a line of accessories for Carol Stanley that were aimed at middle class-consumers and available at retailers nationwide.
