Born halfway between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, in Udine, Italy, Elisa studied politics in Munich before destiny steered her away from diplomacy toward fashion.
Not that she isn’t diplomatic – working with the international press offices of major luxury brands is quite a challenge. And Elisa has had practice: she began at Playboy Germany, moving to another German men’s magazine, Matador, where she was fashion director for four years.
Since 2008, she has been Fashion Editor of American Express Magazines, Departures and Centurion, distributed throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. She looks after fashion, jewellery and watches for the magazines, meaning she creates concepts for shoots and organises them from A to Z, in addition to commissioning writers for on-trend stories and writing some herself.
Elisa lives in London and is always available to talk about new projects and ideas.
