Elena Dawson SS21


Elena Dawson creates timeless and beautiful semi-deconstructed garments in her East Sussex studio. She studied at the University of Brighton and began working as a seamstress after graduating, which turned out to be an invaluable experience. “I draw on the knowledge I learned at the tailors still now in the way I make clothing,” she says. “When you work on alterations you are really tearing the guts out of the garment, performing a sort of autopsy—you really get to see a garment at its most vulnerable point. Observing this state of semi deconstruction in the making of a garment or shoe is what I like to retain in my finished work."
 
She launched Paul Harnden Clothiers with Paul Harnden in 2000, and left in 2006 to start her own line by her own aesthetic standards. All pieces are sewn, dyed, and hand printed in house by a very small team.
