ELLY Prizeman is the most talked about shirt designer on this planet (and  whatever planet they’re on ).

Her stellar range of shirts is out of this world (as modelled by Matt Taylor).

As another notable shirt designer, Vivienne Westwood, put it:

Elly writes on her blog :

Hello Internet Land!

I felt I needed to write some words for all the questions, comments and feedback being received about the shirt I made for him that has caused such a stir.

Nothing sinister at all was meant behind it at any point. It was just a bold and individual fashion item.

I did make Matt’s shirt. You can see it from a few weeks back on his Twitter feed and our studio feed (@EternalArtEssex) as well as my Instagram.
There is a similar shirt available on the internet but as the material is readily available this is no huge surprise.
