The birthday boy for March 3 is Perry Ellis.
I often claim that many fashion designers create a line that speaks to the style of the sign that rules their solar fifth house. Perry Ellis was known for his classic, all-American sportswear. That vibe gels well with his Pisces sun sign because Cancer is the sign on the cusp of his fifth house.
In today’s terms, Ellis’ work would be akin to a label like St. John. It would have nothing to do with the monstrous output of former head designer Marc Jacobs that threw the label into bankruptcy in 1992. That was a pure, impulsive ego trip at the hands of an immature Aries native. His work at Perry Ellis still gives me nightmares to this day. Actually, his work at his own label gives me nightmares, too, but that’s a story for another post.
