Ellen Fellows works in her studio in the New Forest in England to produce the unique vibrant jackets, boots and other clothing.
From the cut-off pieces of Indian Silk saris, Ellen has fashioned a series of brilliantly coloured jackets.
Ellen started by making jackets for herself by the time she had made over 40, her husband suggested it was time to make them for other people too.
This prompted her to start her own business and she founded Bellesque. Ellen has taught herself the skills she needs for creating these beautiful clothes.
Making jackets remain Ellen’s passion and this continues to be at the heart of her business, although she has recently also started creating fantastic boots.
Using boots from charity shops, she adds thigh-high leggings frequently made from furnishings and discarded cloth.
By reusing old materials made from disused furniture and cut off silk she does not only create beautifully original pieces but also gives it a second chance to be beautiful.
