London, Ellen / ellenlondon Studio
Handcrafted designer clothing
Hometown: Lexington, KY
Ellen London creates artisan jackets and coats made from natural fabrics embellished with embroidery and hand painted details. She uses traditional handcrafted silks, linens and cottons of African, Asian and European origin as well as original materials made by her studio.
She feels that the fusion of cultures through design helps foster a spirit of connection. Many of her jackets have hand printed cultural stories in the lining fabric. Ellen intentionally uses stories from more oppressed societies as part of her mission to promote peace building through fashion.
Her clothing has appeared on the runways in Paris and Washington DC. Come take a look at her globally inspired designs at Sugarloaf Crafts Festivals.
