After graduating from Central Saint Martin, Phoebe English partnered with Rose Easton to form English Easton Ltd, which incorporates the Phoebe English label.
She focuses on handwork and engineered surfaces. This attention to surface largely informs how the garments behave in motion and interact with the body. The relationship between materials and motion becomes a key element of the design process.
Nowadays she’s based in East London’s Hackney borough, helming a burgeoning label known for its darkly diaphanous drapes, along with abstract, albeit still wearable silhouettes, rife with the kind of next-gen imaginative prowess.
