10 British Style Makers I Adore & You Will Too!

10 British Style Makers I Adore & You Will Too

The British make a beautifully different mark on interior design and fashion. I thought you might like to know some of my favorite British style makers from across the pond.

Think again if your expectation of British style is reserved and stuffy.  Au contraire, Britain has been on the leading edge of irrelevant style since a little rock group named The Beatles took the world by storm in the 1960’s.

The British invasion of style is growing at full speed with original trailblazers Twiggy, Betsy Johnson, and Vivienne Westwood to Alexander McQueen and Jimmy Choo.  The world of style can consistently rely on the other side of the Atlantic to give us forward thinking, irreverent style.
