Phoebe English, a London based designer who graduated from the prestigious art school Central St Martin’s in 2011, presented for the first time on the official London Fashion Week schedule this season (A/W15). Out of the four collections she has shown, off schedule, this season was definitely her strongest, incorporating many of her signature staples.
What I enjoy most about English’s work, and especially her latest collection is how unashamedly her it is. In a very short time she has been able to show what she’s about as a designer, and all of her collection seem to be developing from a similar theme, very much pushing back against the idea of fast fashion of doing something else each season. She is really taking her time to gradually evolve and properly develop an idea.
