Carly Ellis, newly graduated from Wesminister University with a day-glo neon style, Aspen-underground, cocktail glitz sportswear collection.
The 22 years old designers describes her inspiration as:
The book “Ultra Violet – Black Light Images of the Aquarian Age” was the starting point for my collection. Blindingly bright futuristic images graced the pages and left me exploding with inspiration, and I looked into how I could create the same UV effect on garments. The printed fabrics in the collection were all bespoke, designed by heat pressing UV designs on top of sequin fabrics, so not only do they glow, they glitter!
Following the UV theme, I used Live Edge Perspex to construct garments and create giant embellishments giving the printed fabric a three dimensional edge.
