Prior to founding roztayger, Elizabeth had a long and successful career in the fashion accessories industry in San Francisco and New York City. Working in wholesale, she represented emerging designers, selling to both department stores and boutiques including Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Fred Segal, Stanley Korshak and many more. Among her first clients, Elizabeth worked with renowned milliner Albertus Swanepoel, as well as celebrity favorite Tracy Watts, whose hats have been worn by Madonna, Heidi Klum and others.
Co-owner of the New York City-based accessories showroom Metropolitan Design Group, Elizabeth fine-tuned her own aesthetic sense representing collections from notables such as Jay Strongwater, Lola Millinery, Meg Cohen, Shaneen Huxham, Jennny Graham, Angel Zimick, Sage, and ro. She helped introduce ro to the United States market during its launch and continues to be their biggest online distributor. Another emerging designer that Elizabeth helped hit the fashion radar was New York handbag brand Kooba. Now fast becoming an international brand itself, roztayger product has been sold in the US, Canada, South America, Europe and Asia.
Elizabeth credits her grandmother, Rosalind Tiger, as the inspiration behind roztayger. “My grandmother Rosalind was an avid art collector and interior designer with a flair for fashion. She encouraged me to follow my artistic instincts,” states Jeffer. “The name roztayger is a blend of my grandmother’s first name, Rosalind, and her maiden name, Tiger, which was pronounced “tay-ger.” in Russia. Roztayger is a tribute to her artistic spirit, style, sophistication and indisputable grace.”
A graduate of the University of California at Berkeley in art history, Elizabeth lives in New York with her husband and two children.
