About Us

A Little History

You’re focused on doing the work you love, and you want your style to reflect that—from the boardroom and Zoom meetings to mommy duty and girl's night.

Whether in the office, at home, or around your community, the last thing you need to worry about is looking down and noticing you can see right through the gap in your stained blouse. Or lugging your tote around because a fashion designer decided that fake pockets should be *a thing*.

We’re women just like you who have lived through these problems firsthand. And that’s why we’re dedicated to making workwear that works for you and not against you.

We have shipped thousands of pieces of workwear to women all over the world. We are known for our quality and focus on the customer. Our team has a diverse set of skills and backgrounds in retail, garment design, patternmaking, marketing, textile science, software development, and user experience. We are constantly pushing ourselves to make a better product every day.


Our Team 

  • Melanie

    Founder & CEO

    After spending time in the finance world after college, I realized how difficult it was to find professional, flattering, and affordable workwear. I set out to change that when I founded Elizabeth & Clarke in 2011. Before founding E&C, I spent time at Bill Blass and started a previous company in the retail space. When I’m not making beautiful and functional clothing, I love cooking and baking, interior design, and reading.

  • Juan


    With seven years of software engineering and leadership experience, I have built multiple software teams by emphasizing Open Source values, technical excellence, trust, and empathy. I led the growth of Colombia’s JavaScript community, the largest Spanish-speaking JS community in the world. I love puppies and science.

  • Chelsea


    Hey everyone, my name is Chelsea! I have five years of experience in designing dynamic social media campaigns. At E&C, I love executing beautiful content creation, heart-to-heart community management, and everything in between. When I’m not obsessing over hashtags and Instagram grids, you will find me snowboarding, painting, or planning a budget trip to a foreign city.
