On the Journal: Elena Dawson
London based designer Elena Dawson creates beautiful garments and accessories that possess an ephemeral quality that is meticulous yet timeless. By creating pieces that allow the wearer to infuse her semi deconstructed garments with their own life experiences, each collection becomes an exploration in ritual. Elena Dawson makes her designs in-house with a small group of artisans using fine materials such as raw linens, crispy cotton and fine silks sourced in England. The Elena Dawson label was conceived in 2006 after she co-founded Paul Harnden Clothier.
