Bringing responsible luxury into the mainstream, London-based designer Feng Ho creates timeless and elegant fashions for women. After graduating in MA Fashion Womenswear from London’s Royal College of Art, Feng Ho received support from The Prince’s Trust and set up her own women’s fashion label in 2006. Combining elements of eastern and western cultures, Feng uses organic and sustainable textiles (such as bamboo, soy, bemp, modal and tencel), and end of line fabric rolls from UK textile warehouses to create these ethically and ecologically sound designs. Fabulous!

Feng explains how her collection “aims to challenge the pervasive stereotype of ethical fashion as unattractive or lacking in style.” Created and hand-crafted in London, these flattering garments are hand printed and dyed using plant extracts and achieved through skillful draping and innovative construction.

Through her ethical and eco fashions, Feng has worked with a wealth of cutting-edge London based designers such as Preen, Robert Cary-Williams and Jens Laugesen. She has already sold her work in exclusive London boutiques, including Beyond the Valley and Luna and Curious and her past clients include the acclaimed concert pianist Evelyn Chang. Furthermore, Feng’s eco-collections have also been featured in catwalk shows at China White, Movida and Café de Paris and exhibited at London’s Clerkenwell Dressed, The Fashion and Textiles Museum and Truman Brewery.

If you are in London this week, Feng’s latest fashions will be on show at the Eco Fashion and Design Event at North London’s Candid Arts Gallery.

    This innovative and forward-thinking designer patently deserves a broader public canvas for her versatile design palette…my girlfriend purchased a garment from a previous collection and it is in continuous use, both wearing well and retaining its subtle and perennial appeal…a proud eco-awareness coupled with a unique design stance should put this designer firmly in the future vanguard…how about some menswear?…regards Brian
