Initially trained as designers we worked together as pattern cutting and fit experts for over ten years in the manufacturing industry supplying many famous High Street names.

We were becoming increasingly frustrated with the direction the fashion industry has taken over the past years where everything must be cheaper, faster and more disposable having an impact on the quality of the garments on offer.

We decided to put our combined 35 years of experience into our own venture and created Essential Noir.

Simple – Timeless – Classic – Modern – the principles Essential Noir was born from to support British manufacturing and give you Fashion Essentials that will become your wardrobe favourites to accompany you for years to come.

Not fast fashion but timeless quality Fashion Essentials made in Britain
