About the designer: Nigel Cabourn has worked in the fashion industry for over forty years, but his clothing has little in common with most people’s concept of the word fashion. He is influenced not by trends but a longstanding passion for vintage clothing, fabric and details These elements have formed the basis for much of his output over the years and continue to be a vital part of his collection today. Each collection has a real story, sense of history and integrity underpinned by the highest level of quality.
Today the Cabourn team work and play in a converted gardener’s house at the bottom of his garden overlooking a cricket pitch and are the envy of everyone who visits them, especially when it’s summer and they’re working in the sunshine!
