Hi my name is Elaine Grullon and I am the owner and designer for Elaine Grullon Designs formally known as EJ Designs. I am originally from NY but I currently live in the smallest state in the US in the Northeast-Rhode Island making it my treasured home.
I have over 10 plus years experience in the Fashion Industry but my love for fashion started at a very young age when I acquired my first needle and thread. I have done a bit of everything such as Retail Business Owner, Fashion Designer, Fashion Instructor, and Runway Presentation Collaborator. I earned my Masters in Fashion from the Academy of Art University in California. I owned 2 retail locations before: one in Florida and another in Rhode Island where I specialized in children’s wear but my true design passion was in Women’s Wear. I presented my first collection in 2013 in Tampa, Florida at Christian Fashion Week.
My second collection was revealed in New Jersey in 2015 where fashion was created for all women of all shapes and sizes. It was truly a great experience to be able to create mix and match pieces for diverse sizes. My take on fashion is practical, approachable, comfortable, stylish and fun. I love to mix and match items in which the client is able to play with fashion in creating a closet full of looks with the right pieces.
