Gent London

GENT London is a new unisex sustainable fashion brand. Its aims are to harness the vibrancy of international art and combine it with iconic fashion, bringing together some of the most talented street, modern and contemporary artists from around the world to rework classic iconic pieces and bring their unique vision to everyone.

Customising clothing isn’t new; it’s always been around. GENT London is different!

GENT London aims to give everyone the chance to own something unique. Art is traditionally viewed within the confines of a gallery or hanging from a wall. Instead, GENT London provides its clients with wearable works of art, transforming them into canvas and the streets into the gallery. These are bespoke pieces created by hand, exclusively designed and signed by the artist. Never have our artists collaborated in this way before.

GENT London has seen a significant shift in the fashion industry towards environmental awareness and global consciousness, with recycling efforts and sustainability being the core deliverable of many major fashion houses worldwide. GENT London aims to uphold these values as the brand grows.

All GENT London items are luxury vintage and provide a unique canvas for artists to shift their medium, breeding new life into classic pieces. GENT London’s attention to detail is a big focus, with all vintage items being upcycled with unique adornments such as replacement buckles, updated stitching, and the inclusion of serialised holograms and Blockchain authentication.

“GENT London aims to showcase its artist's amazing talent and create a new exclusive line for the fashion industry that brings together the talents of renowned artists and a wider talent pool of rising stars too.”

About The Collection

For LFW 2022, GENT London is super excited to collaborate with the artist and TikTok sensation, Girl Scout Shoes, who will be creating a unique collection of footwear just for this event. Onnika Caldeira will design a bespoke range to compliment the artwork and colour palettes of the GENT London pieces. Girl Scout Shoes will inject her unique style and bring fun, colour and a celebration of individuality to the runway!

Bibi Sakalieva

Bibi Sakalieva- BS is a new brand created by Bulgarian designer Biliana Sakalieva.

For many years, the designer worked for another brand, but it so happened that her life took a different direction, and she stopped working in the fashion industry. She moved to the United Kingdom, trying to make a fresh start in her life. She enrolled to study business and graduated with honours, but fashion haunted her constantly. Accordingly, she decided that working in an office was not for her and could apply what she had learned in business school by creating her brand, so Bibi Sakalieva-BS was born. Now she is timidly trying to step on the catwalk again, and we look forward to each of her collections because she has an unusual style. The brand offers exclusive ready-made models that bring a sense of luxury and style.

The brand's mission is to make every woman feel special and unique.

In her photo shoots, the designer does not use professional models because she wants to show all women that you do not need to have model measurements to look like a model. Bibi Sakalieva's message is that every woman can be stunning and fabulous.

About The Collection

In this new collection, Bibi Sakalieva combines lace with a first-class elastic georgette, making greater comfortable to wear. The exclusive line is for women who like to be stylish anytime. The design is suitable for daytime and evening or special events such as weddings or parties. We know how valuable time is today and how we have to go to an important meeting at the last moment, so Bibi Sakalieva creates a line to meet the needs of the modern working woman. The materials in the collection are high quality and resistant to long-term treatment so that you will keep this garment in your wardrobe for a long time.
