Who is EL?
Hi, I'm EL, owner, and CEO of ELLEbyEL LLC. Thank you for visiting our site. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I started making T-Shirts in 2016 when my husband and other local comics began getting shirts printed with different things on them. The first shirt I made for my husband was in my living room with an IRON! ELLEbyEL has since come a long way. We have a growing staff and an office space that we OWN!
Every business has a story, and every business owner has things that drive them and ignite passion. Mine is my late husband. He saw this business for me when I worked full-time as a Registered Nurse. He came up with many designs that I sell and would use his platform to promote my brand. When he passed in December of 2019, I made the family shirts inspired by one of the most popular shirts he wore from my brand. Even in his passing, I was motivated to continue what he and I had started. He continues to be my inspiration. He stirs the passion behind the work that I do with ELLEbyEL. So, that is my advice to you. Live within your passion, and the rest will fall into place!
Why the name ELLE?
That's a question that many people ask. When I was younger, my cousin called me EL; my name is EricaLynn. I decided to spell it Elle so people would understand how to pronounce it. When I branded my hair products, I decided ELLE would be the perfect name! Next came headwraps and clothing. I decided to put all of my talents under the brand of ELLE. And today exists ELLEbyEL. I have always been creative and love helping people express themselves. This brand allows people to express themselves in a simple, yet urban and chic way. From hair care to clothing, ELLE is the perfect brand for you!
