About Elizabeth


"Fashion not only makes us beautiful, but it allows each of us to express our confidence and our uniqueness"

Sharp tailored shapes and soft flowing, ethereal forms… monochromatic palettes and subtle patterns come together in Elizabeth St John’s modern, eco lux collections.  Light and seductive, all her collections draw from classical silhouettes and the natural world alike. 

Production with a conscience, all materials are 100% natural fibers or fully recycled man made materials.  French lace, Italian silks and PET fabrics abound, power is 100% wind and each garment is hand cut as ordered, limiting waste and over production. 

Categorizing her collections as “eco-lux,” Elizabeth takes the utmost pride in producing collections that combine luxurious materials with exceptional craftsmanship and design.  Her eponymous collection reflects a modern femininity, with traditional tailoring, encompassing bridal gowns and separates, eveningwear, and children's wear.


Sister companies, which she co-founded with her husband include Element Home ( - eco-friendly home and personal accessories) and Hayden Harlow (  bespoke couture adornments).

Building her companies from scratch, and wholly self-financed, Elizabeth has been able to guide every aspect of her businesses to meet her strict manufacturing requirements as well as her personal passion for environmental sustainability.  A practitioner of “Slow Fashion,” she adheres to age-old handcrafting skills but also combines them with all the technological age has to offer, merging them seamlessly into beautifully conceived collections.

Her intuitive sense of tailoring, was inherited from her couturier mother.  Naturally curious, growing up in her mother's studio, Elizabeth would spend countless hours observing techniques and honing her skills as a designer and master craftsman from an early age.  After pursuing dual degrees in Climatology (physical geography) and Anthropology from the University of Maryland, Elizabeth went on to spend over a decade working to protect some of the worlds most remote tropical rainforests. 

Currently, she uses her unique understanding of how humans interact with the natural world as a focus of her business practices.  She remains very active in the non-profit world, serving on the Boards of several charities focused on the  protection of nature and the environment as well as charities that focus on third world education.

Her bridal collections are shown twice yearly in New York, at New York International Bridal Week.  Elizabeth is also a frequent fashion expert/contributor to various DC television programs.  Her work has been featured in numerous national and international publications including Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides, The Knot, Italian Vogue, and Better Homes and Gardens.  Select collections can be found in boutiques throughout the US, Canada and Europe, and in her studio, just outside of Washington, DC where she lives with her photographer husband, John, and their numerous non-human companions.
