Phoebe English is a luxury Womenswear label creating garments with an attention to precision and beauty. Graduated from the Central Saint Martins MA in February 2011, that brought her the L’Oreal Professional Creative Award, the Ungaro Bursary and the Chloe Award, in the same year Phoebe formed a partnership with Rose Easton.
Labored construction forms the centre of the design ethos, which embraces an uncompromising attention to finishing and textiles. The 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. Through the resurrection of lost, forgotten or little-used techniques, Phoebe English hopes to raise an awareness and respect for construction rather than decoration and thus bring a new dimension to young London design.
