HOW I BUILT THIS Q&A

A Q&A with Katie Pratt, Creative Director of ELLIATT - Facilitated by Elizabeth Formosa, Fashion Equipped Founder.

After working for a number of Australian fashion brands, Katie Pratt saw a gap in the Australian market for unique, beautiful designer womenswear that encapsulated modern femininity. Pratt launched ELLIATT from her home in Australia in 2011.

Initially focused on occasion wear for the Sydney and Melbourne social scenes, ELLIATT has since grown globally, and is now stocked across 6 continents in more than 1200 boutiques around the world - including majors.

Gain unique insights from startup to going global from this Australian brand success story.
