ISABELLA OLIVER

Isabella Oliver

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

For Baukjen De Swaan Arons, Founder, style has always been important. As her first baby bump grew, she found the transition from her pre-pregnancy to pregnancy wardrobe left her personal style and taste behind. It was Baukjen’s belief that pregnancy clothes should be fun and enjoyable that gave her the inspiration to launch her own fashion label. She remembers, “When I was pregnant with my first child, I struggled to find maternity clothing that reflected my pre-pregnancy style. Not only did I want clothes that I felt comfortable in but I also that was great quality so that I could wear them time and again as my pregnancy progressed. We did lots of research and I realised there was little out there for women and this is where the inspiration for Isabella Oliver came from.”

Each detail is carefully and intricately crafted and considered. Moreover, Isabella Oliver's 'Maternity & Beyond' collection is designed to offer women a stylish curation of effortless designs that you'll depend on during pregnancy and love afterwards.

Bianca Elgar

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Bianca Elgar is the founder and artistic director. She has always been passionate about art and textiles and worked as a silkscreen printer/designer in her Oxford studio for many years, mainly creating prints for interior design as well as creating her own statement jewellery. 

When she went to live abroad for 6 months, she had to travel light keeping her clothes to a minimum, due to limited space. She decided on her favourite basics, and a variety of colourful scarves and accessories to dress them up with. She was inspired by the opportunity of creating a variety of looks with just a few statement pieces, as well as showing off print in a new way. 

It was really this experience that made her realise how versatile and beautiful these silk accessories are, and this inspired her to start her own business in high quality British made, versatile fashion. 

ABOUT THE BRAND

Bianca Elgar is an award-winning designer of sophisticated fashion and accessories. The collections are centred around transformative, good looking, great to wear, statement womenswear; which includes; versatile scarves, tops, dresses and jewellery.

The collections are inspired by Bianca’s love for creativity, the expression of individuality and a passion for high quality craftsmanship, described simply as: “Wearable Art” statement pieces. The brand’s most unique aspect is its supreme versatility.

The scarves are made using the highest quality silk with deep ink penetration to show off the vivid colours and print designs on both sides of the scarf. Each item is finished by hand. The versatile shapes of the scarves present infinite styling opportunities. The vibrantly coloured or monochrome designs bring a splash of eye-catching silkscreen print art to any outfit.

JENNIFER-ANNE

Jennifer-Anne

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Jennifer wanted to create a brand of clothing designed exclusively for petite women. She believes that for too long, petite women here in the UK have had a very poor choice available. Jennifer her self is 5'1 and too often the so-called small sizes don’t fit her, either the waist sits too low, the body is too long or the shoulders too wide. 

So, the idea gradually took root that she could do something about it by starting her own brand. Jennifer worked as a lawyer in London at the time, with no background in the fashion business. What Jennifer has created, is built from a real passion to create a solution for women like herself, to design and produce a stylish, versatile and modern collection with elegant petite women at its heart.

ABOUT THE BRAND

Jennifer Anne is a premium online womenswear brand designed and made in the UK exclusively for the petite woman. Their goal is to provide petite women with a wealth of choice in clothes, where they can assume a perfect fit and will find beautifully tailored and classic designs. 

The Jennifer Anne brand uses the petite woman’s frame as the starting point for the design and do not just cut a few cm off the length. The fit is paramount.     The look is tailored and classic, using high quality fabrics. They only use models of 5’3” or under so that customers can get a realistic view of how the clothes will look on their petite frame.
