Julian Road is a small Shropshire based women's wear company designing and retailing our own brand of beautifully crafted, ethically produced tailoring.
Julian Road began in 2011 when Clare, moved back to her home county of Shropshire with her family, following a successful London based design career.
Combining love of the British countryside, traditional cloths such as British tweeds and waxed cottons and Clare's design expertise she launched Julian Road: a contemporary country clothing brand of thoughtfully designed pieces, with a distinctive modern look, distinguished by unexpected details and beautiful fabrics.
The emphasis has always been about designing pieces to last and be cherished, to incorporate into your wardrobe, rather than contribute to the constant churn of the fashion industry. It's about an evolution through the seasons, maintaining a continuity with fabrics and styles therefore reducing waste and overproduction.
Originally selling through local markets and Point to Points we now travel the country attending many prestigious events such as Badminton and Burghley Horse Trials. By retailing directly we can keep our prices competitive whilst maintaining quality and a fair price for production.
In the beginning, Clare designed, cut the patterns, and made all the clothing herself, however, as sales have grown the garments are now made in independent tailoring units in the UK. The design, patterns and samples are all created in house.
The cloths used are all selected from British mills. From beautiful hand woven Harris Tweed from the Isle of Harris to the softest merino lambswool from Abraham Moon, the quality of the cloth is at the heart of every collection.
We are trying our hardest to be as environmental as possible, from our packaging through to our choice of cloth. This is an ongoing process, we have eliminated all plastic from our packaging both from our manufacturers and then in delivery to our customers. We will continue to learn and improve.
The clothes and accessories are innovative, individual and practical; here at Julian Road HQ we wear them every day so are constantly reviewing and improving to make them perfect for you.
