Refreshing Belvedere vodka drinks welcomed the guests yesterday afternoon for the Ellery fashion show at the White Rabbit gallery ,home to one of the largest collections of Chinese art. The compelling setting coupled with a loud almost beatnik track and models walking in pairs,sometimes holding hands, made for an interesting production but add Jennifer Hawkings in all her resplendent glory in the mix and it sure becomes something else entirely.
A friend of mine works at the Corner Shop and says that the interest in Ellery is overwhelming. Girls will call up repeatedly just to find out when the next drop is arriving .Ellery does a polished form of rock and roll in luxe fabrics with enough sexy shimmer added to the mix and it does what it does well . This collection had such pieces and the fabrics were beautiful. I’m especially in love with the beautiful dress on Julia Nobis , the wide legged pants, a light silk yellow coat and the guys’ oversized camel cardigan . The clothes really didn’t need the extra show elements anyway.
