Cattle Track Couture
Fashion by Rachael Ellis
As the second collaboration with Janie Ellis at Cattle Track, Lucy Diggs brings alive the life and times of the Ellis Family and early Scottsdale. Through photographs, stories and the vision, creativity and skills of Rachael Ellis, fashion and utilizing material on hand are the seeds of this beautiful book. Dennita Sewell, Curator of Fashion Design at Phoenix Art Museum and Janie Ellis, daughter of Rachael and George Ellis, have created a tribute to the art, the life and the accomplishments of a true pioneer woman.
Filled with the photographs of the stunning creations, complemented by details of the fine handwork, Rachael’s resourcefulness, creativity and skills were the fountain from which we can now witness this collection of her work and her life.
