St Leonards

About

"I think I must have been a Hans J Wegner chair in a previous life - my design ethos is all about simplicity, practicality and pared down beautiful sparsity."

“K” Avery-Stallion graduated in textiles in 1994 and embarked on a varied fashion career working for High Street retailers until she had become a square peg in a mass-produced hole. A health crisis brought life into sharp focus and ST LEONARDS was born after a 2-yr convalescence. The brand is deep-rooted in its seaside surroundings, feeding off the creativity of St Leonards-on-Sea. With a unisex, pared down ethos “K” is slowly building her customer base. Training interns and employing local people is how she gets things done. Recent collaborations include Margaret Howell, Watanabe in Tokyo and she’s currently handcrafting an order for hip store You Must Create. Her dream is to build ST LEONARDS into a lifestyle brand with its own coastal production.
