Elza was first discovered by a make up artist in her Netherlands hometown Amersfoort.
While still completing her high school studies, shortly after meeting with a prominent casting director Elza became a Prada exclusive during the fall/winter 2012 season – her first bout with runway shows. The following fashion week for Elza included Balenciaga, Ann Demeulemeester, Giambattista Valli, Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, and Stefano Pilati choosing the Dutch beauty to open and close his last show at Yves Saint Laurent. She went on to walk for virtually every top design house within her breakout year including Chanel, Lanvin, Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, Acne, Kenzo, and Loewe to name only a handful.
An outstanding stretch with fashion's most career-shaping shows led to Prada and Solo Versace campaigns as well as editorial features in Vogue (American, Australian, China, Japan, Netherlands and Turkey), POP, Numero, Another, ELLE ,V Magazine and Dazed.
Elza decided to devote time to her growth and education in 2014 attending college in the United States and looking to expand her artistic range in the industry took acting workshops in L.A. before returning with the Cover of Elle Mexico beauty late 2016 and following shows for Armani Prive, Jean Paul Gaultier, Ralph & Russo, Julien Macdonald, Cristian Siriano, Thom Browne, Viktor & Rolf and closing as the bride for Georges Hobeika.
