"Good manners and ladylike at first glance, but on closer inspection through the looking glass, i.e. beyond a mirror and see an image [which] conceals another different [image] behind [it], in another dimension, to use an expression dear to Lewis Carroll, we find the portrait of a Mediterranean and passionate woman, [in] the land in which these beautiful creations are designed, Sicily, so powerful, magnetic, mysterious." Excerpt from Through the Looking Glass with Flavia Pinello, UFashion Magazine, May 2016.

Elaine Day, ellie Day's dynamic designer shares her 2016 Spring/Summer collection this month. "I'm very excited!" says Day. "The collection is my 1960's mod interpretation of evening classics. I was definitely feeling a groovy daisy vibe, but wanted it be sophisticated."
And so it is! The collection is filled with fabulous color, texture and femininity.
"I plan to stick with this interpretative sophistication throughout the collection heading into fall/winter 2017," says Day. "I'm trying to keep my yearly collections very cohesive, yet directional. I hope my clients find them very easy to adapt to their lifestyle and personal taste."
"Also, I am proud to be manufacturing in Chicago and very proud that we are eco-friendly; we recycle and use energy efficient equipment."
