Eli Caner, Creative Director

Straight from her East Village design studio in New York City, the vision for Lady and Butler is driven by Eli Caner. Born and raised in Barcelona, Eli’s passion for travel and fashion were present at an early age. Inspired by her mother’s love for pattern-making and knitting, Eli started dreaming and sketching her own designs.

At 22, Eli moved to the USA to pursue a career in fashion, working with designers including Camilla Staerk, Jonathan Simkhai and Timo Weiland. Her fashion experience, combined with her ties to hospitality and nightlife, inspired her to fill what she viewed as a glaring gap: a lack of modern, chic, and functional uniforms. Her designs speak to ambitious, global creatives looking for timeless, bold, utilitarian and beautiful uniforms to improve the brand experience.
