Owner, head designer and speaker, Ellana Turner took her first sewing classes in High School at the old historic New Orleans Krauss department store on Canal Street. There she learned the basics of sewing with a pattern. She was later mentored by a long time seamstress and bridal gown designer and taught how to give her garments a professional touch. Ellana began making gowns, coats, pants and accessories that people admired and began filling custom order requests. Unfortunately out of fear she did not follow her passion. She would later become a lead software developer for a fortune 500 company and work within IT for over 10 years but the love of sewing and art never went away. She later left her cushy six figure job on a leap of faith to start Cloth and Cord, formerly, E. Turner Couture. She has always had a love for beautiful abstract art and that love is now captured through the Cloth & Cord brand. 5 years later and she hasn’t looked back!
