If CSM masters student Phoebe English weren’t a fashion designer wunderkind, she would be a trapeze artist. Or a ballerina. The astute Central Saint Martins lady has chosen knit as her art form though, and uses it to create L’Oreal prize winning garments (apart from plenty of applause, of course.) Charmingly self-aware, English knows what she’s talking about, and has a marked intelligence behind her design aesthetic informing every stitch. Refreshingly, English isn’t out to get one over on her fellow designers or classmates either – claiming that each of her St Martins graduation class was a star in their own right. Meet Phoebe English, she of the curly handwriting and wondrous knits… and be prepared to be bowled over. — Text by Becky Cope. Photographer: Josh Shinner. Hair and Make up: Jess Cheetham.
