PHOEBE ENGLISH

Phoebe English founded her self-named label based on sustainability and craftsmanship, which are crucial to each collection. She has actively pursued change within the fashion world to improve sustainability within the industry.
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 favourite 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.

Half and Half SS Top

€175.00
According to Phoebe English, ‘This half and half top is one of my favourite designs from the collection.’ This top is a perfect example of the designer's zero-waste and less-waste pattern cutting techniques. All the pattern pieces sit edge to edge to avoid causing any textile waste during its construction. For example, the triangular details on the side hemlines are there to give extra fit but this technique was also used to avoid wasting any fabric. ‘They also give a nice detail to the silhouette of the piece’, says Phoebe.

According to Phoebe English, these trousers were one of the last designs that they 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 trousers. Based on one of our best-selling trousers fits, we added the wiggly interlocking hemline detail and made them in this beautiful dark midnight navy velvet.’
