Inspired by fashion, music, contemporary British art and pop culture and influenced by classic iconography and illustrations Constant and True was born as a Victorian Punk fashion label.
The very first collection was both whimsical and cutting edge. The initial designs were created by hand using decoupage and traditional English arts and crafts techniques. A mismatch of stunning victorian floral imagery and illustrations infused with a modern and electric colour palette. These stunning designs were available on a collection of organic and bamboo T-shirts and homeware.
Constant and Trues first collection was quickly recognised, admired and in demand. Interest picked up in the fashion press and from international buyers and the label attracted a loyal fan base.
Constant and True 2011 Artist Collaboration Series
After the success of the first C&T collection it was decided that as a way forward the label would to promote contemporary british art by collaborating with well inspirational and emerging artists. Established and celebrated modernist artist Gavin Turk was the first to come on board commissioning the design "Merlot Stain" to be reproduced on Constant and Trues napkin range. The result was a very fun addition to many a dinner party table in London over the holiday season. Constant and True appeared with Gavin at The Art Car Boot Fair in London a well known collectors fair. This collection is now a collectors item and the set comes with an authenticity certificate.
2012 was an exciting and dynamic year for Constant and True for the third collection they collaborated again with the best of British. The multi talented and beautiful Polly Morgan, modern artist and Taxidermist commissioned six stunning black and white sketches for the brand. These sketches appeared throughout the collection on T's, sweatshirts women and mens and both in the homeware range.
This collection appeared at both The Art Car Boot Fair in 2012 and then was selected by Selfridges London to show at the prestigious pop up " The Wonder Room" and in their online store. These collections were also available from The Cross in Notting Hill, were featured at Shoreditch Houses fashion sale and at The Art Car Boot Fair.
After the runaway success of their labels first collection with Polly Morgan. Constant and True was very excited to collaborate again with the best of British for their Spring Summer collection. This time returning to their roots of vibrant colours, Polly Morgan commissioned her famous animal illustrations in fluorescent primary colours for the brand. The result was both daring and exciting and collection which was both on trend and fashion forward.
Constant and True decided to concentrate solely on their homeware collection whilst the brand restructured. Inundated with orders and requests for special commissions for private events C&T found new clientele and building on those relationships their decorators, stylists, corporate clients and celebrity wedding and event planners. The homeware label continues to gather positive press and appeared in several home and design publications to date.
