Designer Moment: Ellie Mae

Local. Something we take seriously at Gotstyle. Which is why, when Toronto born Ellie Mae launched her eponymous label last year and showed at Toronto Fashion Week this past March, we took notice. Handmade right here in downtown Toronto is her contemporary line of outerwear. Beautiful patterns, stunning fabrics sourced from Italy and each piece so intricate you almost want two - one to frame and one to wear.

Having studied fashion design at Central Saint Martin's School in London, she is inspired by the city and the music that has guided her way - embroidering some of these iconic quotes and lyrics on the inside. This attention to detail could be one of the reasons Sophie Trudeau, among many other great Canadians fell in love with her designs.

So for those that love to shop local and love fashion, her pieces are for you. The Audrey, Brooklyn and Solange bombers from her SS16 collection are in store now, because let's face it we're all on that bomber jacket trend. They're the perfect layering piece for summer nights no matter the event.
