Ellen Allien

ellen-allien

DJ/producer and more recently fashion designer, Ellen Allien, seems very busy traveling, playing and creating. As a popular and well respected performer, Ellen draws inspiration from the many cities she visits, resulting in her own fashion line under the same name. She recently launched her 2009 winter collection, featuring some rather understated splashes of color and graphics, mixed with interesting arrangements of denim. I’ve enjoyed her many releases, in particular her collaboration with Apparat and her mix for Fabric. It’s great to see artists that make that disciplinary cross-over of music and design, and often interesting to see how one influences the other.
