Preen Fall/Winter 2015 collection

Preen was founded in 1996 by Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi, with a joint love of all things Victoriana, a passion for recycling, and with that masculine and feminine, hard/soft mix the couple bring to their designs. Their debut collection at London Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2001 composed of punkish elements; vintage lace and hand crafted effects, this collection received rave reviews, described as a sartorial traditional clash, with a very British sense of tongue-in-cheek chic. Liberty Ross wore their ‘rosary bead’ blouse to the British fashion awards straight from the runway, putting Preen firmly on the fashion map.

The US First Lady was honoured at the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) awards in New York last night (15.06.09) and praised the industry in a pre-taped video message.

She said: "Fashion is an American art form with ingenuity and craftsmanship that contribute so much to our economy and culture." Noting her "meteoric rise as a fashion icon", CFDA president Diane Von Furstenberg paid tribute to the wife of President Barack Obama, saying she had a unique look that balances the duality of her lives as an adviser and mother to Sasha, eight and Malia, 10.
