Carly Ellis 2012 Collection “The Moment Before It All Makes Sense”
Posted on September 4, 2012 by bertadp
Carly Ellis elevates the raw spirit of streetwear to create clothing that is equal parts spunky and slick, exuberant and fashion-forward. Raised in northern England and educated at the University at Westminster in London, the 24-year-old designer completed her MFA in the inaugural class of Parsons’ Masters program this spring, where Diane von Furstenberg sponsored her tuition. Lauded by The Daily Telegraph’s Hilary Alexander, Vogue Italia, and SuperSuper magazine, Ellis has outfitted artists like Cassie and Rye Rye in her designs, and has crafted commissioned pieces for Tokyo’s Candy Boutique and UpSaver magazine.
Her latest collection, entitled “The Moment Before It All Makes Sense,” a luxe graphic printed mix of sportswear silhouettes imbued with an avant-garde sensibility, previewed as a part of the Parsons MFA Fashion Design exhibition and will debut at Milk Studios at New York Fashion Week in September.
