Personal Style:

Classic chic. I wish I lived in the ’50s because I would be wearing a hat all the time.

Style Philosophy:

What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, so I buy things that make me happy.

Origins of Ella Grace:

When [my family] moved to the Main Line, I started entering pieces in the hat contest at the Devon Horse Show, and I kept winning. From there, I started taking classes and hosting pop-up shops. The rest is history.

Design Inspiration:

I really look up to the style of Isabella Blow, who was a mentor and muse to Philip Treacy and Alexander McQueen.

Advice For Budding Female Entrepreneurs:

Pay it forward. There are so many people who’ve helped me get here, and I try to do the same for them.
