~ IZZY LANE ~ UNIQUE, ETHICAL, LUXURY ~
Izzy Lane is a cutting edge, unique, ethical, luxury brand which has, in its short existence, established its credentials as one of the leading ethical brands in the world. It is widely recognised as the leading voice of animal welfare in the fashion industry as well as being a leading voice for the use of British Wool and the British Textile Industry.
Brainchild of musician and writer, Isobel Davies, Izzy Lane was started in 2007 in North Yorkshire, employing a network of hand knitters who work to patterns in their homes, only using locally spun and dyed wool. At Izzy Lane’s core are the 500 rare breed sheep which have been rescued from slaughter and whose wool is used in every collection. Davies’s flock of Wensleydale and Shetland sheep comprise mainly of animals that would have been sent to slaughter for having ‘imperfections’ such as a black spot in a white fleece. These sheep will live out their whole natural lives in Lane’s sheep sanctuary in North Yorkshire and their wool is used in the knitwear and woven pieces..
Despite their uniqueness and immaturity in a well established fashion world, Izzy Lane has done well to push the brand to the forefront of the fashion stage, showing collections at London Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, LA, Berlin, Paris and Milan. In addition, Lane has gained recognition for her ethically traded and conceived collections, winning the prestigious RSPCA Good Business Award in 2008 and 2012, and the RE New Designer of the Year Award at the world’s first ethical fashion awards and has been invited to show the collection in a catwalk show before the Queen.
In addition to awards, Izzy Lane also has had very successful collaborations with Hobbs and Topshop. To coincide with Wool Week, Izzy Lane produced a limited edition range of premium coats for Topshop. Designing three coats for the leading high street hotspot, her gorgeous coats are all made using the brands trademark ethically produced wool from the designer’s flock of Shetland and Wensleydale sheep.
A brand that is the ultimate in authenticity and exquisite hand tailoring, Izzy Lane is perfect for those with a love of luxury as well as a social conscience.
