So before Fashion Week begins and we get lost in the chaos of established designers, I wanted to put you on to up-and-comer Leon Curry


… 22 year old designer and creator of the Ellie Owen line:
A political science major at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, Leon taught himself to sew at the age of 15, and quickly began making his collection of sophisticated yet sexy dresses and separates for the saucy set….
…inspired by his mother, who he says is, “…Always well put together and doesn’t follow the trends,” Leon describes the Ellie Owen women as someone dynamic, multifaceted, and fresh…
Leon’s just getting started, but he says, “Upon graduation this year I intend to move to New York to expand my line. My goal is to show in Mercedes Benz fashion week in New York and sell my clothes in retailers’ world wide.” His dream also includes diffusion lines, fragrances, and bags. We’ll keep an eye out!
Seems Aubrey is a fan!
