Phoebe English is a luxury label creating menswear with an attention to precision and beauty. Construction forms the centre of her design philosophy and inspiration for collections often stem from abstract origins such as a particular type of process or a feeling; this approach aims to infuse the work with a conceptual aesthetic, offering luxury through idea.

Phoebe graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2011 under the tutorage of Louise Wilson. During this degree, she worked as an intern at John Galliano, Diane Von Furstenberg and for the couturier and corsetiere Mr Pearl.

An intricate balance between craft and design remains at the heart of each collection. Returning each season to lost, forgotten or little-used fabrication techniques, this respect for construction and the ‘mark of the maker’ aims to set the label apart from mass made fashion and trend led design - a permanence in the transience of fashion. She has become known for her imaginative and creative fashion presentations and set design which offer an immersive conceptual experience in the fashion week schedule.
