From Supermodel to Fashion Designer.

Posted on

Our Creative Director Gail Elliott talks about her career from Super model to Fashion Designer.

Tell us how Little Joe Woman came about? What made you launch your own brand? 
I was extremely fortunate to enjoy a successful 24 year career as a model based in New York in the 80s and 90s but had begun to feel a need to express my learnings and fashion thoughts and feelings creatively. Having worked with so many of the most creative and powerful fashion designers, photographers, magazine editors, stylists, hair & make up artists and models in the business as a fashion model myself, I came to appreciate quality, luxury and how beautiful clothes make a woman feel. My first designs were very simple little silk slip dresses and camisoles. Pieces that I needed for myself and couldn't seem to find in stores at the time - there were many vintage pieces out there but the fit or fabric was always wrong. The ones I designed and produced worked with my hectic travel schedule - they were easy to pack yet great to wear and made me feel good. My mission with Little Joe Woman is to connect with women - for me the Little Joe Woman appreciates luxury, she's chic, she prefers quality over quantity, she's subtly sexy, she's a busy person, she enjoys travel and loves life...just like me!
