ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Ellen's formal couture training includes intensive study with well-known couturier, author and teacher Susan Khalje. Ellen also studied with Azzedine Alaia's master draper and pattern maker, Julien Cristofoli, in the art of moulage, in which patterns are created directly on the dress form.
It is the very fusion of art, science, and a remarkably discerning eye that endows Ellen with an extraordinary ability to visualize and ultimately create each finished piece, all the while keeping a keen eye on accentuating her client's assets and minimizing any flaws. Her focus is on magnifying femininity while working with the finest materials and outstanding workmanship.
