Elizabeth Gillett, trained as a painter and printmaker at Hartwick College, couldn’t find a replacement for a favorite lost scarf so she designed her own. Within months the same velvet scarf was being sold at Barneys New York and Elizabeth was running a full-fledged accessories business from her fourth floor walk-up Manhattan studio.
Eighteen years later, Elizabeth Gillett is designing a full line of cover-ups, scarves and wraps under the Elizabeth Gillett brand and for private label clients. Her seasonal accessories are a unique combination of current trends, feminine details and vibrant color. Knitwear shrugs and cardigans feature pointelle pattern details and covetable, soft yarn blends. Custom prints and lustrous sequins make woven cover-ups for dresses and swimsuits new and special. Elizabeth’s casual scarves are the perfect solution for busy women – throw a jeweled, fringed style over an outfit and leave work for a fun night out effortlessly.
