FLORENCE BRIDGE is a London based fashion label founded in 2013 and focused on creating classic contemporary womenswear. Specialising in digitally printed silks, patchwork leather and shearling textures, all Florence Bridge pieces are hand crafted in London with our specialists teams. In fact, all aspects of our production are sourced within the UK – from the digital printing of our silk to the silver embossing on our leather accessories. We aim to keep our carbon footprint down to the minimum by undertaking all our production within the UK. All the leather, sheepskin and Mongolian lambswool used in Florence Bridge products are genuine and sustainably sourced from responsible companies within the UK. The animal products used are not bred specifically for their skins and as such the materials used are natural by products. We use as much of each skin as possible to reduce wastage and keep hold of all our leather scraps – this is how many of our unique patchwork leather pieces were originally created! We believe in slow fashion and have a commitment to using only natural fibres within our products. We aim to use zero ‘man made’ plastic fibres to reduce plastic pollution and the damage that plastic and synthetic fabrics cause the environment. We encourage our customers to recycle their packaging where possible. Florence is from London. She studied fashion design at Nottingham Trent University and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York graduating in 2012 with a first class degree. Before setting up her own label she worked for a number of luxury womenswear designers gaining experience in pattern cutting, embellishment, and production.
