As of 2015, Bruce Makowsky and his wife, Kathy Van Zeeland, play active roles in the company, especially in the area of design and marketing, while LF USA meets sourcing and production demands through Li & Fung's global network of partners. New York-based Van Zeeland, Inc. began in 2004 as a handbag design firm and high-end importer. The bags are sold by QVC and major retailers throughout the nation.
