Born into an English family, with Austrian heritage, Lisa Kensington-Wright has always been a lover of fashion. Pursuing this initially as a hobby, her dream career as a child was to become a plastic surgeon. After her creative aspirations turned to fashion. This stayed purely as a pastime whilst she continued her private education. After choosing to study criminal law, she put her energy into her degree. Six months in Lisa became bored and realized the reality would be spending most of her career amongst criminals, which did not appeal. She packed in her boring studies to take a job offered to her in Italy where she would be selling exclusive artwork. This Italian adventure exposed her to the wonderful world of Italian fashion. She was signed to her first modeling agency in Milan, then to one in Paris. She focused on catwalk and editorial work and had finally found her passion. Hugely inspired she returned to London in order to continue her studies in this fascinating and challenging industry. Lisa went to Central St Martins in London. This university had educated the talents of many famous fashion designers including John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Phoebe Philo and Stella Mcartney, to name just a few. Lisa initially created 4lisa Model Management in 2003 where she represented female and male models to clients in Switzerland, France and the UK. Following the success of this she sold the company to a larger agency and took to the creation of the fashion house Elle4lisa. At the same time Lisa was establishing her label, Elle4lisa, with The British Fashion Council in order to be recognized as a strong British fashion label.
