Luella Bartley

Luella Bartley is an English fashion designer, magazine editor and former journalist based in the UK.

In 2002, "The Gisele" bag she designed from the best selling "Luella for Mulberry" edition was an instant success and revived the ailing Mulberry brand. This, in turn led to Club21, the Singapore-based retail group, investing in a global licensing agreement for Luella Bartley ready-to-wear and accessories.

In January 2006, Bartley was selected to launch Target's Go International line.

She has showcased her work several times during London Fashion Weeks. She returned to London for Spring/Summer 2007, after six and a half years based in New York. During the same week she opened her first store, in London's Brook Street.

In 2008, she launched a limited edition bag collection "Friends of Luella" in Hong Kong.

Wearers of her designs have included Kate Nash, Kelly Osbourne, Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sienna Miller, Mischa Barton, Chloe Sevigny, Foxy Brown, Christina Aguilera, Reese Witherspoon and Cate Blanchett.

Bartley currently lives in Cornwall with her partner and children.

Jane Jarvis

Jane Nossett Jarvis (born November 1915) is a renowned jazz pianist. She is also known for her work as a composer, a baseball stadium organist and a recording industry executive. She was born in Vincennes, Indiana.

Jarvis, the daughter of Charles and Luella Nossett, was recognized as a piano prodigy at the age of five and she studied under a Vincennes University professor as a young girl. Her family moved to Gary, Indiana soon afterward, and Jarvis was hired to play the piano at radio station WJKS in Gary in 1927. At age 13, she was orphaned when her parents died in a train-auto wreck and she returned to Vincennes, graduating from high school in 1932. By then, she had already studied music at the Chicago Conservatory of Music, the Bush Conservatory of Music, Loyola University Chicago and DePauw University.

Jarvis stayed with the Braves for eight seasons and then headed to New York City, where she took a position with the Muzak Corporation as a staff composer and arranger. She would rise to become a corporate vice-president and its director of recording and programming.

In 1964, she was hired by the New York Mets to play the organ at Shea Stadium. She is remembered at Shea for playing an alternate theme song, "Let's Go Mets", as the team took the field before before every game, as well as for her renditions of the Mexican Hat Dance during the seventh-inning stretch.

Jarvis left Muzak in 1978, and the next year she left the Mets to concentrate on her first musical love, jazz piano. She became a fixture at New York nightclubs, frequently playing alongside bassist Milt Hinton. She became a founding member of the Statesmen of Jazz, a group of jazz musicians age 65 and older, sponsored by the American Federation of Jazz Societies. One goal of the Statesmen is to present the wonders of jazz music to young audiences across the United States. The Statesmen have also traveled abroad, performing in Japan, among other places.

Jarvis has released several albums of her jazz piano work, including Jane Jarvis Jams (1995) and Atlantic/Pacific (2000). In addition to Hinton, Jarvis has often collaborated with trombonist Benny Powell and bassist Earl May. As a member of ASCAP, she also has over three hundred compositions to her credit.

Today, Jarvis lives in Cocoa Beach, Florida, where she was honored in 2003 by the Space Coast Jazz Society for her lifetime achievement. On March 15th 2008, Jarvis was displaced from her New York City residence when a construction crane collapsed, damaging her building on East 50th Street.
