Phoebe English

Phoebe English founded her label in 2011. The brand's dual roots of sustainability and craftsmanship are crucial to each collection, and Phoebe has actively pursued change within the fashion world in order to improve sustainability within the industry.
Certified materials that are free from harmful chemicals, the repurposing of deadstock fabrics, recyclable, biodegradable or home compostable packaging, buttons made from palm nuts and milk protein to avoid unnecessary plastic or natural dyes are just a few examples of how her pieces are produced.

With the launch of her Nothing New collection at The Wasted Hour (a collection made entirely from reclaimed materials sourced from designers and studios across London) we talked about her favorite actress, her creative family, her first internship with a couturier in Paris, her studies at Central Saint Martins, how she founded her label in 2011, her commitment to sustainability and much more.

Thank you Phoebe, for being part of The Wasted Hour.

"This half and half top is one of my favourite designs from the collection. We have been developing our zero-waste and less-waste pattern cutting techniques over the past two years and this top is an example of some of these techniques.
All of the pattern pieces sit edge to edge to avoid causing any textile waste during it's construction, for example the little triangular details on the side hemlines are there to give extra fit but using this technique to avoid wasting any fabric. They also give a nice detail to the silhouette of the piece."

"These were some of the last designs we developed for this collection, it's always the case that some of the best things in a collection come right at the end when you are fully in the development process and it happened again with these.
They are based on one of our best selling trousers fits and for this collection we added with the wiggly interlocking hemline detail and made them in this beautiful dark midnight navy velvet. "

"The Two Panel Trousers have a slim leg fit and have been developed as a straight forward everyday trouser, their simple fit and corozo nut button fastenings add to the veryday ease of this piece."
