fashion designer Linda Ellis, creator of the
Almond Tree label, will show her latest
fashion collection at Couture Fashion Week
on Saturday 14 February 2009 at 8:30 p.m. at
the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City.
Ms. Ellis's unique designs and color
palettes are inspired by the West Australian
land, sea and skyscapes. Her affection for
the land of the Pilbara desert and the
cerulean ocean of Broome finds form in her
signature hand painted silk fabrics in rich
textured and colorful prints.
Linda Ellis's love of fashion took root
in 1975 during a trip throughout Australia
with her parents following a devastating
flood on the family's farm. She went on to
study fashion at Swan Tafe in Perth, and
drew further inspiration from her time
working in the almond tree groves on a
California farm. Subsequent and diverse
experiences in geology, sheep shearing,
ranching and farming enriched her life's
vision and sharpened her creative focus.
Since the launch of her Almond Tree
label, Linda Ellis has passionately worked
on her popular resort and womenswear
collections. The talented designer has a
sincere desire to see women return to the
truth in themselves as women, expressed
through what they wear. Caftans give women
of any age and size the opportunity to be
"We are very pleased to include Linda
Ellis in this season's fashion shows," says
Couture Fashion Week producer Andres Aquino.
"Her combination of elegance, classic
simplicity and art has a universal appeal
sure to be welcomed by Americans who like to
dress comfortably yet stylishly."
The Almond Tree label has attracted major
press reviews and attention in the local
Australian media with her recent
participation in Sydney Fashion Exposed
2008, held at the Sydney Convention Centre,
Sydney. She is now poised to make her mark
on the demanding New York fashion market.
Almond Tree sells through selected retail
outlets Australia wide and online.
