Ellie Day is a contemporary wedding and social occasion collection created by Elaine Day Spoerer. The brand ethos is a sophisticated merger of vintage classics with updated beautiful fabrications, imported laces, hand detailing and beadwork. Ellie Day focuses on creating wardrobe pieces that are as inspired as they are functional.
All garments are cut to order and made by hand in Chicago with great care and attention to detail. The manufacturing is done by professionals with over 20 years of experience in the better dress market in Los Angeles and Chicago.
