About Bianca Elgar : Championing a versatile capsule wardrobe and bold accessories. The idea for the business came when she relocated to Belgium for six months with her two teenage sons. With limited space she had to pack light and keep her own clothing to a minimum. She decided on her favourite black basics, and a variety of bright scarves to dress them up with. Inspired by the opportunity of creating a variety of looks with just a few items, as well as showing off scarf prints in a new way, she decided to start her own fashion brand once back in the UK. Bianca has always been artistic, and her background in silk-screen printing saw her producing a range of soft furnishings for the home from her Oxford studio. She has previously studied upholstery and soft furnishing, made her own statement jewelry, as well as embarked on a textile design course. Bianca is now bringing this experience to her eponymous fashion brand. Established in 2015, the brand sets out to merge classic elegance and modern art, creating pieces that encourage the wearer to have fun with fashion. Her scarves come in deeply vibrant colours and statement prints, whilst her clothing is made in neutral shades to allow for individual styling. Expertly crafted with delicate stitching and attention to detail, this collection is 100% British. The items are all heirlooms, designed and made to last for generations.
"I dream my designs, then I print my dreams". A lifelong passion for creativity and the expression of individuality, I have a background in screen-printing and a flair for transforming outfits with just a few vibrant touches, these are the driving force behind my designs.
