Gail Elliott - one of the supermodels of the 90's

Gail Elliott who rose to fame in the 1980's and '90's with an impressive career as one of the worlds top models, and continues to remain in high demand, has further branched out creatively and professionally with a line of clothing.

After being a longtime favorite of every designer in the world - Versace, Calvin Klein, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Prada and Marc Jacobs to name a few, Gail retired from the annual shows to focus exclusively on a lucrative career in print work for whom she shot covers and fashion spreads for Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle and Marie Claire with photographers such as Mario Testino, Steven Miesel, Patrick Demarchlier, Arthur Elgort, Craig McDean and Peter Lindberg. She also shot advertising campaigns and catalogues, which took her to exotic locations all over the world.

As a teenager growing up in London, Gail started modelling at the persuasion of her ballet teacher. She was soon signed by an agent and went to Japan, where the 17 year old matured into a professional model, learning to speak Japanese along the way. By the time she arrived in New York a year later, she already had financial independence and a full "Model Book" - the all important "resume" in the modelling industry. After her first shoot with Steven Meisel, Gail immediately became one of the top models in the business, once appearing in four different layouts in a single issue of American Vogue.

Her inspiration for 'Little Joe by Gail Elliott' came out of her experience, as a well travelled model and out of her necessity to find what she calls "comfortable and flattering - sexy little nothings!"

She recalls checking into hotels tired and jet lagged and wanting only "to take a bath, change into comfortable clothes and order room service." The clothing she found available was so flimsy, too short or overtly sexy, that she would have to wrap a towel around herself to answer the door! "It's nice to wear clothing that is sexy enough for your boyfriend, without making the room service guy blush," says Gail. "It's a fine line..."

This is when she decided to start a line of her own - a line of beautiful, flattering slips and camisoles that can double as not only clothes to lounge and sleep in but can be worn out as well.
