    Since 2006, Elizabeth Mason has been designing her own collections under the label Elizabeth Mason Couture, supported by her talented team of sample and pattern makers in her Atelier.

    Elizabeth's designs are inspired by the beautiful vintage couture she has ‘had the privilege' to collect and represent in her boutique, The Paper Bag Princess. Her looks herald back to the great designers of the late 1930s through the early 1950s, with very special attention to the Hollywood Silver Screen era designers such as Adrian, Irene, Ceil Chapman, Helen Rose, Howard Greer, Travilla, and Don Loper, as well as classics such as Chanel, Desses, Dior and Balenciaga.

    Her designs have been described as glamorous and sexy Red Carpet attire with a contemporary edge, yet still reflecting the incredible craftsmanship of an era lost to manufacturing techniques of today's trend and season-driven fashion houses.
