PHOEBE ENGLISH is a Womens and Menswear label founded in 2011.
The brand is entirely made in England and pieces are created with close attention to detail and quality, rejecting mass made or ‘fast' fashion. A bedrock sense of producer responsibility and sustainability underlies all decisions from design to business. All of the production is made in London, meaning the journey from sketch to garment is minimised to an approx. 10-15 mile radius and the entire business operates from one studio in South London. The brand's duel roots of sustainability and craftsmanship are never sacrificed where possible, and the growth of the brand proves to be tackling obstacles that have been put in place within the fashion and retail sector.
The womenswear line comprises an ever-evolving search for communicative design and construction, exploring a personal narrative through surface structure, and textile engineering. The menswear line employs a straightforward, natural and utilitarian nature, which has found popularity with both men and women alike.
Phoebe English trained at Central Saint Martins where she completed both a BA and MA in Fashion. On graduation, she was awarded the L'Oreal Professional Prize, Ungaro Bursary and Chloe Award. She has worked across a wide variety of disciplines and organisations and regularly guest lectures in leading Universities.
