The red carpet has one thing in common these days, and that’s Tyler Ellis. The daughter of iconic fashion designer Perry Ellis seems to be fulfilling her destiny by taking Hollywood by storm and with the expansion of her luxury handbag line. On this week’s podcast, we sit down with Ellis, raised in LA by her TV writer and executive mother, her famous father tragically dying in under two years after her birth, to talk the trajectory of the brand she’s proudly built. Tyler shares the major message she received, loud and clear, from the one and only Michael Kors, when and why she felt ready to take on her last name professionally, and the importance in understanding every aspect of business. You’ll hear Tyler’s perspective on the Perry Ellis legacy and learn more about the incredible story behind her birth and brand logo. We get into the intricate attention to detail found in every Tyler Ellis handbag and meanings behind it all, what she aims to deliver in her designs, and talk seasonless sensibility. Tyler shares details around the momentous moment when she purchased her own factory outside of Florence and embracing life as an “Italiano”. Tyler shares what it’s like to compete with other luxury brands, takes us behind the scenes in loaning her line to all those famous faces, and she explains nitty gritty behind exactly how a handbag hits the red carpet. We talk the art of the handbag and working with artisans, the importance in choosing brand partners that feel special and who understand her brand, charity work and life with balance, what six things she’s most into these days, and when it comes to carrying her bags, which celebrity poses positively perfectly. Our conversations with creatives continue, as Story + Rain Talks to Tyler Ellis.

"What a more beautiful way to honor my father than having his hand writing be part of every single thing. Because without him I probably never would have gotten into this." -Tyler Ellis
