Catherine Teatum and Rob Jones are the designers of London based womenswear brand Teatum Jones; a label which has become recognised for it’s Modernist approach to elegance; targeting a super smart confident and Creative woman.
Having trained in womenswear at Ravensbourne and Central Saint Martin’s respectively they were brought together via their artisanal approach to the design process, inspired by anthropological narratives. Today, once inspiration is elicited, they both ‘live the theme’ in a literal sense, like method actors, which is clear to see in each collection. Such an approach to design has earned the duo accolades, reviews and output which consistently refers to them as ‘textile pioneers’ and ‘innovators’.
Teatum Jones offer a modern wardrobe made up of striking tailoring, relevant shapes and bold, modified exquisite fabrics. Part of a collective of new contemporary designers, who with Woolmark, are working to bring British manufacturing into a new era.
It is these consistent, post-traditional, design principles that has put them on the BFC’s London Fashion Week schedule for AW15 and sees their collections, including their beautiful statement coats and fluid shirt dresses, sold through prestige stockists such as Net-a-Porter, Harvey Nichols and Liberty.
Teatum Jones are very proud to have recently been announced as the CFE’s 2013/14 ‘Venture Designers’ joining an alumni of some of the most directional and successful designers currently showing in London Fashion Week.
