About the Designer
NYC native Eliza Torres always knew she wanted to be a fashion designer. She was born naturally artistic and remembers sketching apparel as early as the age of nine. In 2004, Eliza attended The International Academy of Design and Technology in Tampa. By 2007 she completed with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion Design and Marketing.
While still a student, Eliza became a wardrobe stylist for HSN. After graduating, she moved back to NYC and interned for Kay Unger and Giant Magazine. She then moved on to work for a swimwear company as an assistant for a short period. Currently, Eliza works fulltime for a Florida based department store designing for missy private label. She is also a textile/print artist.
In 2011 Eliza won a Fashion Competition hosted by BRINK Magazine and sponsored by Vitaminwater. She beat out hundreds and won through the use of votes using hash-tags via Twitter. She graced the cover of the magazine as her prize along with a $1,000 check from Vitaminwater. In 2012 Eliza was a semi-finalist for Project Runway. Since, E Marie has been featured in numerous National & International magazines including Zink and FHM China on Supermodel Anne V.
