Meet Elly's Couture Newest Local Designer!

Hi there!  My name is Lauren Rundquist, a 20-year-old student and artist from Saint Louis.  I delight in creating jewelry, painting, playing in the sunshine, and sipping on tea.
I, like most of us, am a girl who knows what she wants.  So when I had trouble finding simple, pretty pieces of jewelry that caught my eye I thought what better solution than to make them myself!
I began creating handmade earrings, bracelets, and necklaces for myself that I would wear day to day or on special occasions.  Soon my friends and family began requesting pieces, and with some encouraging advice I decided to turn my hobby into a business.
I use glass beads, wire, chain, and patterned fabrics to make my jewelry.  Each piece is something I wear myself, so of course it is lightweight and comfortable while still sturdy and wearable.
I hope you enjoy my pieces as much as I delight in making them!
Best Wishes,
Lauren Rundquist

Elly's Couture Introduces two new Independent Designers!

Meet Blair: Blair grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, and at a young age she developed a strong interest in fashion and trend forecasting. After graduating high school she was unsure what career path to follow; she opted for a more traditional route and studied Psychology. Unable to deny her strong desire to learn more about the fashion industry, Blair spent her summers in New York interning for various designers.

It was during her first internship with a handbag designer that she discovered her real passion. When Blair decided to finally launch her own line of handbags she knew that she wanted to offer designs that were simplistic and easily transitional from day to evening, as well as season to season. It was also important that each handbag be functional and serve a purpose, while beautifully complimenting an outfit.

Above anything else, Blair wanted each of her handbags to be a piece of luxury that would carry on as a timeless piece. Each design is thoughtfully created to make you feel special and unique.

Meet Natalie Kim: I am a graduate of University of Florida but I appreciate the variety of colors and school spirit that the other Universities bring to the atmosphere. After I graduated I expanded my line to other Universities around Florida and Georgia. I absolutely love my business and I get extreme gratification out of seeing girls having fun in my game day dresses.
