Elaine started her journey with Coquette in 2004. A large source of influence for Elaine comes from her world travels, from
Toronto to L.A., New Orleans to China, where she is constantly inspired by the array of beautiful fabrics, culture and people. Celebrity looks, classic movies
and street fashion often enter the foray of her sketches, and she is constantly on the lookout for trendsetting concepts. Elaine’s favourite Coquette collection
is the Darque line. Darque’s edgy designs and boundary pushing style are Elaine’s trademark, mimicked in her personal style. She often wears pieces of the Darque
collection herself mixed in with every day pieces to express her own unique style. Elaine’s designs have been featured in many magazine editorials, advertisements
and television shows.
