One of Australian designer Kym Ellery’s AW17 muses is legendary artist and civil rights activist Nina Simone. This inspiration transpired into all new boldness and fierce femininity, seen here on this V neck crepe midi dress. Made in Australia, the loose fitting silhouette is detailed with dramatic flared sleeves with ruffled trims, raw edges and polished hardware as if pierced through the fabric. Wear it to an evening event with stilettos and a clutch.Ellery crepe midi dressConcealed zip fastening at backV neck, long flared sleeves, silver toned hardware at sleeves, ruched bell overlay at cuffs, straight silhouette, split at front80% acetate, 20% polyesterDry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 47"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8Made in Australia
Kym Ellery’s Abigail dress is one of those ‘why didn’t I think of that’ moments. It’s crafted in wide wale corduroy – the more tactile, the better, in our opinion – but dipped head to swing hem in a metallic finish for a glistening effect. Part disco, part school teacher, it gets even better with a turtleneck cut and extra long sleeves that tap into AW17’s fondness for oversized everything. Grab some ankle boots and you’re ready to nail geek chic.

1990s minimalism is an of-the-moment trend, and Ellery's take on the theme is typically impactful.

Inspired by the ‘high priestess of soul – Nina Simone’, Ellery merges boldness with feminine fluidity for Pre-AW17. It's showcased best on this black cady Molotov dress, with statement burgundy satin-twill ruffled sleeve panels that delicately cascade over the loose-fitting silhouette. Wear it to an evening event with black stilettos and a boxy clutch.
An ode to David Bowie's many stage personas, Ellery's Pre-AW15 collection is loaded with party spirit. The Heroes dress is made from a black and violet paisley-jacquard with metallic flashes of silver and copper, and crafted to a contemporary shape with wide short sleeves and a bias-cut skirt. Highlight the shimmering threads with sparkling heels.
Ellery's Bougie dress is an excellent example of the label's architectural designs. It's cut from a tonal-red and black mid-weight marble-jacquard to a strapped of-the-shoulder shape with long gigot sleeves. Details include contour seams, and a decorative waist panel that highlights the feminine silhouette. Layer over a metallic roll-neck and over-the-knee boots for an avant-garde evening look.

Effortlessly elegant, Ellery’s burgundy Louis dress is cut from a lustrous silk-satin that drapes sinuously over the body to the ankles. It’s designed with flared short sleeves that further the free-flowing fit, and is discreetly detailed with V-shaped stitching at the front and back. Team it with tonal strappy sandals after dark.

This season Ellery turns its attention to the sinuous slip dress, crafting this wine-burgundy Tony style in a slinky silk-satin. It’s suspended from super-skinny straps, cut with an ultra-modern square neck, and in a typically on-brand manner, detailed with a ruched side and grosgrain ribbon. Keep things minimal with a pair of black strappy sandals.
