Over the past 20 years Jules Hogan have gained invaluable experience working in the design industry, selling designs to fashion houses and retail companies. This and having worked on trend forecasting projects gives her an understanding of the current and the future in design.
Graduating from The Winchester School of Art with a BA Honours 1st Class Degree in 1995, the collection won the universities Colour Award and The Graduate Fashion Week Knitwear Award. This collection was also exhibited with Texprint in London and Dusseldorf.
Her garden studio and creative haven is based in Berkshire near to countryside and open fields. She is inspired by this landscape but also drawn to tradition, sea views, striping and re-worked Fair Isle patterning, updating them with the use of colour.
With an attention to detail the fabric for many pieces is produced on re-conditioned, knitting machines. It is then pressed, carefully washed to slightly felt, dried, pressed again and then sewn to make each individual item resulting in a premium hand-finished product. Jules Hogan has a commitment to quality and that the finest British materials are used including super soft Scottish spun lambs wool sourced from a family mill that has been spinning yarn in Scotland since 1799.
