Kally Ellis Featured in The Evening Standard

“Twenty-five years ago, Kally Ellis ploughed her £14,000 pay-off from a short career in merchant banking into a fading flower shop in Shoreditch called McQueens. She kept the name, ditched the shop’s dowdiness and stuck strictly to her mantra — sell simple, stylish flowers, beautifully presented, to the London market.

Now Ellis has a £3 million business with a big new HQ — also in the east end, in Bethnal Green — a shop in Claridge’s and contracts with London’s leading restaurants, stores and hotels. She makes annual trips to LA to dress the Vanity Fair post-Oscars party and to New York for Robert de Niro’s Tribeca film festival.”
