Not just a experimenting with established forms, but creating brand new ones, Jane Bowler is at the forefront of innovative British fashion design. Hailing from the small town of Swadlincote in the Midlands, Bowler's unconventional approach to fashion is rooted in her training as a textile designer at London's prestigious Royal College of Art.

Her graduate show in AW11 shot her straight into the pages of the style press, and she's become a favourite among internationally-renowned stylists.

Blending unusual materials, bold colours and strong geometric influences, Jane's fascination with innovative, experimental materials is the fuel that powers her brand. A demi-couture, handcrafted approach keeps each garment truly unique, wrapped in a philosophy that she refers to as "wearable art".

Jane has ambitious plans for the brand to be a key player in the luxury fashion market, with plentiful commissions and one-off pieces. It's the innovation and experimentation possibilities that drive her though; Jane's artistic approach of textile development and employing untraditional materials means that every one of her collections is another beautiful chapter in her world of textile alchemy.

Jane Bowler offers a range of textile and fashion workshops for students and creatives. Visit the website on www.janebowler-workshops.co.uk
