Growing up, Kym Ellery was surrounded by art made by her mother who worked in textiles, print making and ceramics. All that creativity around her, inspired Ellery to pursue a career in fashion and design. After completing her certificate of Fashion Design in Perth, Ellery travelled to London to study at the prestigious fashion school, Central St. Martins, where she studied Fashion Illustration and Sketchbook Building.
Before starting her own label ELLERY, Kym worked at Russh Magazine for 4 years as part of their creative team, helping developing the magazine into one of the most cutting edge fashion editorials in Australia.
In 2007, Kym decided to use her experience and skills to create her own nakesake label. With fans such as Madonna and the creative team at US Vogue and Harpers Bazaar, Ellery's label quickly went from strength to strength. Stocking in most of Australia's top on-line stores and in Myer, ELLERY is quickly becoming popular amongst fashion lovers not just in Australia, but around the world.
In March 2010, Ellery collaborated with Sportsgirl to create a capsule collection for the brand. She attended a meet and greet as part of her collaboration to tell shoppers about her background and what inspired her collection.
Kym is often seen on the red carpet and off duty in ELLERY, making her the perfect poster girl for the label's feminine and edgy look. Ellery has caught the eye of street style snapper Garance Doré on more than one occasion, wearing her own designs.
