Interview with Tyler - Tyler Ellis

Interview with Tyler - Tyler Ellis

I met Tyler through a mutual friend a few years ago in Paris. Mindy said “you must meet Tyler - she is the daughter of Perry Ellis! and has an amazing line of handbags." I knew of the fashion designer Perry Ellis very well. I had my offices next to his on Seventh Avenue in the early 80’s, I often went to his sample sales.
