Perry Ellis brought a new look to American sportswear, elevating casual clothing to designer status. One of America's most popular designers of the 1980s, Ellis made clothes that were relaxed and unpretentious, yet also sophisticated and timeless. Often described as an innovator, Ellis once said, "I don't make fashion. I make clothes." His method, which has continued as his legacy, was to make traditional ideas and make them modern.
