Jenny Packham


 

BIOGRAPHY
One of the UK’s most successful and independent fashion brands with global recognition, Jenny Packham has become the design house of choice when it comes to evening dressing and bridal wear.
Launched in 1988, Packham’s distinctive signature has contributed to revolutionise the bridal industry, introducing a contemporary approach to design and styling. The eponymous label now comprises ready-to-wear, resort, bridal, accessories and lingerie collections.
Jenny Packham has flagship stores and showrooms in London, Paris and New York. The collections are available at the world’s most discerning stores: Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
Red carpets the world over are graced with Packham’s designs worn by the most iconic, talented and influential women of our generation including: Catherine Zeta Jones, Angelina Jolie, Amy Adams, Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Diane Kruger, Dita von Teese, Kate Hudson, Oscar winner Adele Adkins and The Duchess of Cambridge.
British Brand Jenny Packham is pleased to announce the launch of its first Asian flagship store.
The 80m² space, spread across two floors, is in the Central district of Hong Kong. The design concept, created by the designer herself in collaboration with architects Peter Kirkness and Winnie Cheng, is minimalist and modern, a nod to the aesthetic direction the brand plans to roll out across its international flagships. Catering for bridal customers, with an exclusive edit of evening wear, the store will be open to trade later this month. A traditional Chinese opening ceremony is scheduled for early November and an official launch party hosted by Jenny herself will be announced shortly.
“Asia has been a major market for us across all categories, for the past ten years or more. Brand awareness is high and there is a desire for the product. The next step for us was to find the right space for a stand alone store and establish an independent physical presence: we look forward to offering our customers our signature brand experience. Our strategy now is to build the brand across Asia through a focused marketing and PR campaign and investing in a targeted VIP dressing programme.” Mathew Anderson, CEO.
The Hong Kong store is an addition to the brand’s international flagship portfolio. Jenny Packham currently has three global flagships in London: the flagship evening wear store in Mount Street, Mayfair, as well as a flagship bridal boutique and accessories boudoir in the city’s Belgravia area and a flagship store in Paris offering both ready-to-wear and bridal. The collections are available at the world’s most discerning stores: Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
Tuesday, 9th  September 2014 – New York, USA. Jenny Packham showed her SS15 Collection at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week.
The show took place in Manhattan’s historic terminal Stores building, an industrial tunnel space curated by British Architectural company Grimshaw, with the support of the UK Government’s GREAT Britain campaign.
Inspired by Marilyn Monroe, this season’s collection featured crepes in pillarbox red and bold china blue, draped off the shoulder and clinched at the waist, alongside sleek silhouettes in textured metallic. A full length, form fitting gown in fine illusion tulle encrusted with waterfalls of sequins was inspired by the iconic ‘Some Like it Hot’ cocktail dress.
Voluminous skirts in saccharine shades of flamingo pink, pale jade and sugar almond in the lightest organza and appliqué lace and separates evocative of Marilyn’s pared down, off duty wardrobe.  A bold palm print was a reference to the lush bungalowed gardens of the Beverly Hills Hotel, where Marilyn famously called home.

Jenny Packham’s Spring/Summer 2015 New York Fashion Week show sees fashion and design come together for a celebration of the best of British.
The show will take place in Manhattan’s historic Terminal Stores building. British architectural company Grimshaw is partnering with Jenny Packham to curate this industrial tunnel space, with the support of the UK Government’s GREAT Britain campaign.
Both brands have a strong US presence. Jenny Packham, the independently owned British eveningwear and bridal label stocked at Saks, Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, has shown on-schedule at NYFW for the past nine seasons and opened a US showroom in the city’s Meatpacking District in 2011. This Fall marks the completion of Grimshaw’s latest US project, the Fulton Center, a landmark transit station in the heart of Lower Manhattan’s revitalisation.
Grimshaw’s setting for the Jenny Packham SS15 collection is inspired by the form of the Fulton Center interior, which pairs an oculus with a bespoke art piece to bring light all the way down to New York’s every day runway: the subway platform.
Britain’s creative artists inspire the world,” says Danny Lopez, British Consul General in New York. “Our creative industries, including fashion and architecture, are essential to our economy, contributing £71.4 billion Gross Value Add (GVA) and sustaining 1.68 million jobs in 2012.
The GREAT Britain campaign is extremely excited to be supporting this unique partnership between Jenny Packham and Grimshaw during New York Fashion Week. Both companies demonstrate the depth and extraordinary quality of British talent, and are globally recognised for superior design and craftsmanship. UK Trade & Investment is delighted to be assisting Jenny Packham and Grimshaw Architects in growing their overseas footprint and supporting jobs and growth in the US as well as the UK.”
Jenny Packham is delighted to have been awarded “Best British Bridal Designer” at this year’s Bridal Buyer Awards, in association with Mark Lesley. Launched in 1988, Jenny Packham’s distinctive signature style has contributed to revolutionise the bridal industry, introducing a contemporary approach to design and styling, making Jenny Packham one of Britain’s most successful fashion brands with global recognition.
