Elizabeth Bergman's Profile
A pack-rat, costumer, and fashion history enthusiast from an early age, I'm a jack of all trades. Buying and selling vintage clothing is the profession I always said I would get into if my dance career was ended by paralysis...thankfully etsy allows me to do this as a side project to my other creative and professional endeavors WITH the full use of all my limbs.
Childhood fascinations that inform my current vintage aesthetic:
Tom Tierney high-fashion paper dolls, playing dress-up and putting on plays, my grandma June's costume jewelry and artificial flower collection, early 90s magazines Sassy, YM, and Seventeen, my parents' high school yearbooks, the design-it-yourself paper doll game Fashion Plates, my grandpa Walter Wright's jewelry workshop and designs, weekly ballet class and annual recitals, my grandma Betty's eccentric collection of archeological and modern-art inspired jewelry…
