We are two humans inspired by other humans. We create fashion from human stories. Both born Londoners with British and Irish heritage, we are united by a shared fascination of humans and their stories. We truly believe in the power of fashion to present a pro-social message of inclusivity and positive identity. We believe in creating socially conscious fashion that puts the craftspeople and the customer at the heart of our creation.
We are passionate about creating exquisite textiles layered with emotional narrative. We weave those stories into the fabric and textiles of our collections to create bold, vibrant and modern fashion in our London studio. This approach to design has earned us accolades and recognition as London's young ‘textile pioneers' and ‘innovators' and seen our collections connect with smart, creative and confident women. Currently the British Library's Designers in Residence we are passionate researchers who make use of the UK's many museum archives.
We value talking to people as part of our in-depth creative research and have been referred to as "method designers." In 2016 Teatum Jones won the prestigious International Woolmark Prize for Womenswear. We were the first ever British recipient of the award and joined an alumni of prize winners that included Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent.
Recent accolades also include being shortlisted for the 2018 Green Carpet Challenge Award, the 2017 British Fashion Trust Award, the 2017 Scottish Fashion Council Hawick Award for Knitwear, the 2015 UKFT Best Womenswear Designer and the 2014 CFE Venture Designer Award Winners. Come on our journey, we have so much to learn and create together. #teatumjones
