Phoebe English

PHOEBE ENGLISH was founded in 2011 and has since focused on creating clothing with close attention to detail and narrative. The studio has dual roots in textile craftsmanship and reduced environmental impact: aiming to develop ways of working with design, and its surrounding systems, that better fit within the realities of our planetary boundaries. The PHOEBE ENGLISH studio has shown at London Fashion Week since 2011 through a variety of performative installations, exhibitions, shows and events across the city. In the decade since Phoebe established the studio, the brand has developed into an internationally renowned label. In recent years the studio has been undergoing an ongoing transition into exploring less extractive fashion systems with a focus on the design potential for the circularity of textile waste, designing out waste from the design stage and the chemical content of our clothing; through exploring plant dyes.
