    I have always been inspired by Aussie designer Kym Ellery! Im super surprised that she does not have a thread here, so i have decided to make one to share her with you all.

    She has incredible personal style, her label ELLERY is phenomenal and she is a great stylist too!

    hmm I agree that Ellery is one of our best Australian labels, so I'll get the thread started by posting some pictures.

    These are from the latest lookbook (autumn/winter 2010).

    Here's the interview:

    As we learn in Kym Ellery's CV, the Sydney-based fashion designer once worked as a hand model for Yoplait and before that worked in a surf shop in Perth. These days however, Ellery spends her time planning world domination through her eponymous label ELLERY, collaborating with the likes of Graz Mulcahy, Sportsgirl and artist Emily Fitzgerald, styling shoots and dressing the odd celeb. We caught up with the designer, stylist and former Russh Market Director to learn why it takes more than a "passion for fashion" to make it in this industry.

    WORK EXPERIENCE
    -Work Experience in the costume design department at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.
    -Surf Shop during teens
    -Bridal Store also in my teens
    -Scanlan and Theodore for my first 3 years in Sydney. I love this company.
    -Alice McCall for but a moment helping her with the PR and general bits and bobs.
    -Russh for a sweet 3.5years or so. Starting there for issue 4 onwards.
    -After leaving Russh I continued Freelance Styling; shooting for Oyster, Yen, NO mag and Box.
    -Studied for 1 year Fashion Certificate at Bently Tafe; Perth
    -Attended St. Martins for a Summer School course.
    -Started ELLERY in Jan 2007; Trevor Stones shot some pieces for VOGUE Australia and Tamila Purvis shot some for Russh before the label was even properly born. Thank you so much guys.


    How did you get into the industry that you're into now? With sheer determination and the willingness to work for free and til all hours of the night.

    What's been your highlight of your career so far? Having Madonna's Stylist contact my publicist for garments for a music video being shot in Milan. Whoah. Then emails from US Vogue and Harpers swiftly coming in behind.

    Have their been any surreal or really crazy moments? Lots of crazy ones which I think could also be seen as surreal but no good surreal moments as yet. They are in the pipelines though. I can feel it in my waters.

    In your life has there been a job yet that you've really hated? I was a hand model for Yoplait. Can you handle that? I still claim in sometimes. Okay... all the time.

    Have you reached your ultimate career goal yet or are there still things you want to achieve? There are so many more things I can't wait to achieve. World Domination for example. I also hope to open a boutique in Paris one day and have a team of people that can help my vision come to fruition.

    What advice would you give to people looking for a career similar to yours? Don't do it. I would recommend a career that involves really high salaries and low work hours.

    Did you always know that you wanted to go into that industry? I sure did. I don't do it because I want to. I do it because I must.

    Was there ever a certain person or defining moment that influenced you as a person? I worked with a real a-hole once at a surf store in Perth when I was but a teenager. He taught me how to stand up for myself.

    What are the highs and lows of your job? Late nights, sore necks, seeing the fruit of my labour hanging on the rack in front of me and seeing people excited about my work.

    If you weren't doing what you're doing, what's another career path you might have taken? I would definitely be an interpretive dancer. Or someone's muse.

    What are you working on at the moment? My new Fall Winter 2010 Collection. It is all about the body and peeling the layers back.

    What do you hope to be doing 5-10 years down the track? Lying on a yacht.

    If you could trade places with one person for a day who would it be? Carine Roitfeld. Because she is COOL. She invented COOL and has the COOLEST Job in the world. Oh. My. God.

    What or who has been inspirational to you throughout your career or life in general? Carine for sure. Also and my sweet Ma, Pa and family. And my little lambs.
