Eco Fashion Week Designer Spotlight – Elle Evans Swimwear

Kira Simpson

Elle Evans is an Australian sustainable swimwear brand and one the many incredible  fashion labels showing at Eco Fashion Week Australia in November.

We caught up with founder and designer Ellie to check out the new collection and see what it takes to run a sustainable fashion label.

The Story

“Tanya Evans and Ellie Evans met in 2010 (and no, we’re not related, we like to think it was just fate!), we worked for the same fashion label for several years and became fast friends. A few years after we had both left the company found Tanya raising her two beautiful daughters in Sydney, and Ellie nursing her own “baby” Elle Evans Swimwear in Melbourne.  Elle Evans Swimwear grew (so did Tanya’s babes!) and when Ellie finally plucked up the courage to ask Tanya if she would join as a business partner, Tanya was not so secretly thrilled! Each talented in our separate fields we feel like we have found the ying to each others yang, and we can’t wait to bring Elle Evans Swimwear  into the foreground of the Australian Fashion scene.”
