Elizabeth Arnau has worked in the fashion industry for over 10 years. She began her career as a fashion designer launching her own fashion collections of haute couture & prêt-à-porter womenswear and showcasing them at Barcelona, China, New York and Cannes Fashion Weeks. In 2008 she launched a modeling agency business, managing models worldwide and producing shootings and events in the fashion and entertainment industries under her creative direction. Working herself as a model too has allowed her to live and work in the main fashion capitals and work with renowned designers, specially in the bridal and evening fashion sector.
Since a very early age she had a clear vocation into arts and fashion and spent most of her free time drawing and designing. This passion has led her to collaborate with brands to illustrate beauty, fashion and lifestyle campaigns. Many of her creations can be purchased online and include wall decor, cushions, homeware, tableware, fashion accessories and garments.
She graduated with a degree in Philosophy at University of Barcelona, Graphic and Fashion Design at Llotja Advanced School of Art and Design and Master in Interior Design.
