Designer Spotlight: Merit Award Winner - Phoebe English
Central Saint Martin’s graduate, Phoebe English has been propelled into the fashion spotlight since graduating in 2011. Initially catching the sights of industry-insiders with her Autumn/Winter 2011 collection of black rubber and faux-hair, our previous ‘One to Watch’ is now the recipient of our Autumn/Winter ’12 Merit Award.
Since obtaining incredible stockist- London’s Dover Street Market, English has attracted a swarm of media attention in the form of both mainstream fashion publications- i-D and AnOther magazine, and cult-status bloggers- the infamous Susie Bubble.
Experimenting with organic separates, there is a beautiful simplicity to English’s contrasting material selection and experimental treatment techniques. With the L’Oreal Professional Creative, Chloe, and now with the VFS Merit Award behind her and with a CV boasting experience from prestigious fashion brands such as John Galiano and Mr Pearl, it’s only reasonable to expect great things from the young designer.
Phoebe English's collection will be shown at Vauxhall Fashion Scout, The Freemasons Hall on Friday 17th at 18.30.
