Australian designer based in Paris, Kym Ellery combines avant-garde and inspiring volumes.
Originally from Karratha, in Western Australia, trained in fashion design in Perth and then at Central Saint Martins School in London, Kim Ellery launched her brand in 2007. A ready-to-wear women’s label combining comfort and avant-gardism. From flying dresses to sculptural trousers or coats, the inspired designer has been practicing a science of chopped scalpel volumes since its beginnings. She diverts the classics and plays volumes mixing the masculine and the feminine. Increasingly noticed in the Paris fashion week, Ellery is certainly part of the labels to follow carefully.
After several seasons spent on the Paris Fashion Week ready-to-wear calendar, and becoming an official member of the Haute Couture and Fashion Federation, Ellery is growing exponentially.
Since January 2018, Ellery has been designing two main collections each year, instead of four. These two collections are sold to their wholesaler partners during the Haute Couture fashion week in Paris. However, these collections are gradually released to the press and the public in two chapters. The first chapter is published in January at Haute Couture, and the second chapter is published in March at the Women’s Ready-to-Wear Fashion Week.
In September 2017, the designer chose to break with the historical format of the fashion show and show off her silhouettes through a two-day film in a secret studio. The experience is digital is total. While presenting her film and her creations at a cocktail party in the 7th district of Paris, Kym Ellery goes further with the launch of a micro-site (www.elleryfuture.com) entirely dedicated to her spring-time collection summer 2018, kind of manifest for a multi-sensory experience of his fashion.
