Indie Ella has become a staple at a.ell atelier, basically because you all love it so much! So we have put this special night together to celebrate the artist, Jayna Lamb and her company, Indie Ella. Jayna lives in Portland and just a month or so after we opened up shop on Hawthorne she arrived with a suitcase of samples stating that she thought we may make a good fit. I freaked out. Yep, I knew we would make a good team. I absolutely loved the silk prints, the sustainability aspect, the uniqueness of each piece and the fact she was a designer in my community. I knew these lightweight pieces would be perfect for our Kauai climate and gorgeous enough to work all year around in Portland.
Jayna herself goes to India and picks out every recycled sarong, transports them to her sewer, works closely with him in design, fits, and everything else that goes into a successful brand. She keeps him busy, full time, all year around.
Almost 3 years later, tons of silk dresses, kimonos, tops, pants and skirts have found their way into your (and my) closets. It is about time we hosted a special evening.
Jayna will be bringing special discounted items available 1 night only. In addition to our stores being fully stocked, you are sure to find something you will love.
I hope you will join us!
