Introduction Eli van Poeyer

Eli van Poeyer was born in Belgium. His unique style is a result of travelling extensively and a culture clash of living abroad continuously for  20 years. (Belgium, France, Hungary and Denmark)

After having completed  his Bachelor degree at Antwerp Fashion Institute in 1993, he started his career at Zara in Belgium and then moved  to Paris in 1997, to join forces with Mango and Kookai, developing his skills in Visual Merchandising, concept and Window display.

In 2001 Eli moved to Budapest and from then on, he was (self) employed by multiple publishing companies like Marquard Media, Sanoma and Axel Springer, and  associated with magazines like InStyle, JOY, Éva, Joy Celebrity, Playboy, Glamour and Cosmopolitan as well as various fashion brands.
