ELLISS is a London-based label created and designed by Elliss Solomon – launched in June 2016.
Elliss graduated from Central St Martins with a degree in Womenswear Fashion Design. The brand was born out of a desire to create clothing using conscious design methods and minimal waste.
Here below is an interesting extact from Vogue.
“I believe the most sustainable way to shop is to buy vintage – but that’s not always possible for underwear and jersey pieces,” explains Elliss Solomon, who launched her namesake brand in 2016 with the missive of creating ethical and necessary clothing for women. Ranging from briefs and swimwear to fleece jumpers and leotards, all of her pieces are designed and manufactured in the same East London building, reducing her carbon footprint, and use materials from organic cotton to recycled polyester. One of her particularly good discoveries is a regenerated nylon process – ECONYL – which takes fishnets and nylon waste and reforms it into fabric that she uses to make swimwear.
