Hi! I am Elly Prizeman. I started off as a girl with a hobby as I wanted to start making my own clothing. My style is quite unique and I struggled to find clothes to fit me and that I liked 100%. I taught myself to sew and soon started making clothes for my friends as well.
Things took a turning point in my life when one of my closest friends wore a birthday gift I had made him on a very important day in his career which caused what is referred to as #shirtstorm. The original shirt I made for him was featured in the press around the world and has since been on several TV shows. From that point forward my humble hobby was turned into a career that I was passionate about after receiving global support and encouragement from you!
To say I have been surprised by the media and celebrity attention would be the understatement of the year! To see your creations being discussed on some of the biggest TV shows and by some of the biggest celebrity names both in the UK and even Hollywood… well, it’s mindblowing! The Mayor of London blogging about MY shirt? Are you serious?
I have since quit my day job to fulfil all the requests sent to me. It was heart warming to hear that so many people wanted to buy my clothing to support my friend and I by wanting to wear these all over the world in solidarity! Of course, it’s still early days for me as far as my business goes, but I’m learning as I go and enjoying every minute.
While the products on this website are essentially just skirts and shirts at present, if you’re looking for a bespoke or personal item that you don’t see listed such as a wrap, please get in touch. Personal orders will be taken and quoted individually, and I have to admit I really love doing them.
Anyway, thank you for your support and for visiting my website and I look forward to speaking to you all. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask! A variety of new fabric prints will be available later in the year and you’ll hear about it here first!
Finally, my biggest thanks has to go to Dr. Matt Taylor for making this happen for me and I would also like to thank you all for the interest, orders and for also being there to encourage me! I love reading all the tweets, messages and emails you send me and I am forever grateful to you for your support.
