Bianca Elgar is a multi award-winning designer who has created a capsule clothing collection of uncomplicated modern shapes coupled with a range of wearable-art statement accessories. Her intention is to create high quality, exclusive clothing, and accessories for women. The collections are inspired by her love for creativity, the expression of individuality and a passion for high-quality British craftsmanship. Her range comprises simple, adaptable clothing; an extensive scarf collection; and Carissa - a selection of modular acrylic jewellery, to complement and complete the narrative. These lightweight, versatile pieces are all designed and made in the UK. The scarf range, including the innovative and award-winning Three-Sided Skinny and her unique Tube Tops, use only the finest quality silk and Bianca’s striking designs are all created through the silkscreen process. Digital printing allows for deep ink penetration to show the vivid colours and designs on each side of the fabric. Finished by hand with delicate pin-hem stitching, the attention to detail is apparent in each piece. The award-winning Ava Black Tunic dress features innovative styling loops, allowing Bianca’s beautiful scarves to be added without disrupting the line. Bianca’s adaptable designs are made to be curated by the wearer. They can be worn together or individually to create different looks for any mood and occasion.

The idea for the designs came when I had to pack light and keep my own clothing to a minimum. I 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, I decided to start her own fashion brand once back in the UK.
