MEET THE DESIGNER, CHRISTINA SCARSELLA HARRISON...

Chrissy Harrison has always had a love for fashion.  Being a maximalist, Harrison approaches design with bold colors and textures while remaining classic. Focused on celebrating women's unique and individual style drives her passion for fashion forward designs. The wearable art is described as “unpredictable and rarely duplicated.” Harrison wanted to create a company where she could channel her artistic talent and help women enhance their own identity. She collaborates with women globally when sourcing beads, materials, and designing her signature collection. She finds working  in her creative process inspiring and subscribes to the idea that, “The path to success is always ‘we’ and never ‘I’.” 

BEHIND THE NAME, ELSIE FRIEDA...

My Grandmother was often referred to as Katherine Hepburn because of her character and charisma. She also had intellect besides her beauty. Her savviness knew no bounds. She had many layers to her personality and she often expressed herself through her fashion, wit and desire to give everyone the same opportunity. My Grandmother was a daughter of immigrants who believed in women's independence through hard work and creating your own personal identity. Her parents were artists, creators, and makers as they immigrated to United States and opened their own confectionary in Philadelphia. They handcrafted beautiful molds, family recipes, and a deep understanding of family first. Elsie Frieda first started to feel and know who she was and how she could impact others at her family's business.

Our story at Elsie Frieda is always a "we" and never an "I".

ABOUT THE BRAND...
