About

Williamsburg, Brooklyn-based designer Ellis Dixon, born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, boldly mixes her no-nonsense Southern roots with edgy New York style when approaching each new garment. Her eponymous women’s wear label is currently celebrating its fifth anniversary with the launch of its newest line, Ellis Dixon Bridal.

While attending the Fashion Institute of Technology, where she studied Fashion Design with a concentration in Sportswear and Current Scene, Ellis launched her career with handmade garments that were quickly picked up by stores and boutiques in both Brooklyn and Memphis. Two months out of college, Ellis was hired by Capacity International to design for the company’s sophisticated Aix en Provence (AIX) line. Just a year later, Capacity added the Ellis Dixon line to its exclusive collection—letting Ellis concentrate on her own designs full-time.

Now at age 28, Ellis has expanded the line to include custom-designed handbags and accessories, available for special order and on sale at boutiques across the country.

Not only is her collection available to the public in boutiques, specialty stores, and online, she is also available to create garments for special order—a haute-couture approach to affordable clothing and accessories. Ellis launched her Bridal line with this in mind: one-of-a-kind, inimitable weddings gowns and bridesmaids’ dresses meticulously constructed to fit the individual whimsy of her customers.

Quoted in the Daily News, she says, “I would like the Ellis Dixon brand to be recognized both for its uniqueness and its ability to reflect the various moods of my customer. Clothing should represent how you feel on any given day. It’s my goal to make someone feel they can conquer the world with one step.”
