Local, Individual, Unique

During the mid 1990s, I decided to return as a mature student to full-time education, studying something that has been a passion of mine for many years.

Enrolling at Oxford College of Further Education, I gained a National Diploma in fashion and pattern cutting. Furthering my skills at Berkshire College Of Art and Design in Maidenhead, I reached my Higher National Diploma level in Fashion with Textiles, finally attaining my BA Degree at Winchester School of Arts, specialising in knitted textiles and having a particular interest in texture and colour.

Moving back to Oxford a few years later, I began my own creative design business in 2012 incorporating three distinct collections:

  • Anthony French specialising in one off garments for clients in need of something different, individual and unique for any occasion
  • then Anthony French Weddings & Occasions ; exquisite designs in sumptuous fabrics for that most special of occasions
  • and finally Frenchies byAnthony French my kidswear range of t-shirts, jumpers, tops and blankets.

Everything is individually tailored to the client from the outset: style, design, materials, colours, fittings. All bespoke, all sourced especially for their needs, as unique as they are. My design visions reflecting their ideas.

During the Summer of 2013 I introduced
Anthony French Homestyle to my design portfolio, encompassing my love of colour, print and exciting fabrications into curtains, blinds, cushions, throws and table linen

Now back in my home county of South Yorkshire, I am looking forward to a new chapter in my story. Get in touch and we can take the journey together!
