"The main thing that I wanted to put in this collection was a tux, but I didn't know if it was possible at a low price point, because I didn't want anything over $100" Ellis Ross explained. Apparently, she discovered that the addition of pockets (and not lining) would hike up the price. "So no pockets!" she said.
Apparel runs from $29 to $74 and accessories from $19 to $24 - - - BOOM!
In her interview, she said she really wanted the collection to appeal to every woman and every body. "I really believe women are beautiful in all shape, sizes, colors and ages — all of it. Beauty is about the individual. Beauty is about choice. Beauty is about personal desire and what that means to you as an individual. So I really wanted this collection to be joyful and armor-ful, you know? To empower women to feel good in their skin and to feel joyful in their clothes."
