Academy of Art University: Ben Ellis Collection


Ben Ellis presented his collection at the Academy of Art University 2016 Graduation Fashion Show in San Francisco on May 11th, 2016. Ellis, B.F.A. Menswear Design, is an artist and adventurer, a free spirit with a diverse skillset who  has traveled all over the world. Born and raised in the breathtaking landscape of Anchorage, Alaska, Ellis  has strong ties to his community and environment.

Having seen first hand the dramatic deterioration of the  native Alaskan habitat, Ellis upholds ethical and sustainable practices in his own design work. His  graduation collection is inspired by the Fauvism oeuvre of French artist Andre Derain. Ellis employed  durable, functional fabrics like denim and jersey for the majority of his designs, as he believes fashion  should not only look good, but feel good, too.

He even took an extra eco-friendly step and repurposed fabric  from thrift stores and donated t-shirts for his collection. He was awarded the 2016 California Fashion  Foundation Scholarship for Menswear.
