Our Vision

Slow Fashion and supporting British manufacturing lies at the heart of Essential Noir.

Our vision is to create beautiful high quality women’s black clothing and to offer something better – Fashion Made to Last – where the colour does not fade, the seams do not twist and the fabric does not pill or look old and worn after a few washes.

We do not produce fast fashion but timeless quality Fashion Essentials made in Britain

Our Fashion Essentials collection is designed to give you great quality wardrobe staples – items every woman needs in their lives.

Our core product is the perfect black top crafted in the UK from beautifully soft, durable and ecological Micro Modal fabric knitted and dyed in Leicestershire. This fabric has been carefully selected for its quality and ability to retain its shape and colour as well as ease of care.

As an addition to the Fashion Essentials collection our Limited Edition collection offers The Unique pieces for your wardrobe – Small runs of Exclusive Designs crafted from carefully selected fabrics – often also using end of roll or limited availability fabrics.

Simple – Timeless – Classic – Modern – the principles Essential Noir was born from to support British manufacturing and the slow fashion movement giving you great quality fashion – items that will become your wardrobe favourites to accompany you for years to come.

All Essential Noir designs are manufactured in the UK using British made fabrics wherever possible.

We hope that you love our products as much as we do and will return for more as our collection grows.

The article says "No longer stirring clichéd images of the hemp-wearing hippy, 2018 was the year sustainable fashion firmly established itself on the consumer radar, and was embraced by high street retailers." Our question though remains - have large high street retailers really truly embraced sustainable fashion? Or are they still producing constantly cheaper garments in fast fashion cycles? ... We applaud @sjdooley for raising the issues around fast fashion and bringing them to the attention of a wider audience and love the work The Duchess of Sussex @kensingtonroyal is doing in promoting sustainable brands. ... But lets be honest here - to truly see a change we need to see a change in consumer attitudes and we do need to see results, action and true change from large high street retailers - not just green washing - empty words and promises. ... "According to WRAP (The Waste and Resources Action Programme), the value of unused clothing in wardrobes has been estimated at around £30 billion. It is also estimated that £140 million worth of clothing goes into landfill each year." ... "Let's face it, we're never going to stop shopping" But you can look for more etchically-minded brands - find new smaller brands who already consider sustainability as part of their brand and are committed to reducing the impact of fashion on the world. ... "Take the time to research the brands you love and see what information they reveal about their production processes.
