After graduating from St. Martin’s in 2011, she founded her label that same year. Bringing a new dimension to fashion her works are known for their delicacy, precision, beauty and abstract silhouettes all together creating wearable clothing. Her pieces feature exposed net pockets, unfinished hems and fabrics that appear turned inside-out.
English’s design process begins with sampling and is focused on handwork and engineered surfaces. This attention to ‘surface’ is a key aspect of the design process and largely informs how a garment interacts with the movement of the female body (Extract from Bristish Fashion Council Official Website).
Her black and white SS2015 collection was enriched with finger-painted prints and blobs smeared on light muslins, crisps cottons, knotted webbed netting and delicate meshes (Images below via Style.com).
“A lot of the silhouettes were made with two of the same garments. It was this idea of repetition, doubles and a duel interplay of things – the circular room and the circular stairs, a dress on a dress, a jacket in a jacket.” -Phoebe English
