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, winners of the 2018 Luxury Law Summit ‘Luxury Entrepreneurs’, winners of the 2017 British Fashion Trust Award, winners of the 2017 Scottish Fashion Council Hawick Award for Knitwear, winners of the 2015 UKFT Best Womenswear Designer and winners of the 2014 CFE Venture Designer Award.
Re-Love Part One is about moving away from creating everything ‘new’ and instead focussing our efforts on developing bold, beautiful, sustainable and ethical Teatum Jones products.
Re-Love Part One is a resurrection of our own TJ archive of prints and textiles that have been brought back to life in a compilation of TJ's biggest hits.
Re-Love Part One is a continued examination of our ‘normal’ fashion business model and what our roles as humans should be for the future of our planet.
Re-Love Part One is about placing our faith in the belief that creating socially conscious and sustainable fashion is better for humans, better for the planet and better for commercial business;
