Born in New York, Elizabeth grew up between Tokyo, London and Hong Kong. Her first role was at the luxury department store Barneys, where she started as assistant buyer for private label, Ronald van der Kemp. In 2000, she joined Bergdorf Goodman as the first-ever designer buyer, before becoming their couture buyer in 2003. Under her direction, Elizabeth grew its top brands up to four times in sales volume, while also nurturing many smaller brands to become significant businesses, including Jason Wu, Proenza Schouler, Altuzarra and Cushnie et Ochs, to name a few. Then, in June 2017, Elizabeth moved to London to join Net-A-Porter as its global buying Director, where she now oversees a team of up to 50 buyers across all categories.
