Lisa Phillips Frankel began designing as a child in Newton, Massachusetts, winning countless awards and recognition. Inspired by a passion for classic architectural design, she narrowed her creative focus to jewelry following her move to Miami Beach, and the birth of her daughter, Danielle. Born with a natural penchant for the arts, Danielle Frankel Nemiroff devoted herself to the art of ballet, gaining acceptance to prestigious ballet programs around the country. All of her idle time was spent studying the world of fashion and it quickly became clear that she had an uncanny eye. The two began designing jewelry together for close friends, charitable and social organizations. Word spread and they opened a showroom in Miami Beach in 2007, creating custom pieces for private clients under the company name Phillips Frankel.
By 2009, the pair had been receiving requests from around the country and decided to spend a year honing the Phillips Frankel designs for public release. Lisa and Danielle released a capsule collection in April, 2010. Within a week of the launch, they landed on the cover of legendary fashion publication Women's Wear Daily. Phillips House and its two designers have appeared on the covers and pages of nearly every magazine of note, on top celebrities and models, and, most importantly, on sophisticated women throughout the world.
