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.

"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. "
