Eleanor Balfour is a British ready-to-wear brand known for its versatility of design, luxurious quality, and ethical practices. Each collection is designed for the modern woman, with recognition that the clothing that we keep in our wardrobes must be suitable for many seasons and occasions.
Founding her label five years ago after training in the design studios of Oscar de la Renta and Figue, Eleanor had studied at Central Saint Martins in London and Parsons School of Design in New York, having known from an early age that her passion lay in fashion design.
Each collection draws inspiration from something different – from art to interiors to nature – and is made up of pieces designed to celebrate the female form in ways both playful and practical. Eschewing seasonal trends, Eleanor mixes different fabrics, textures, and silhouettes to create the perfect balance of elegance and edginess.
As the modern woman is environmentally-conscious, so is Eleanor Balfour. Styles are produced in small batches to avoid waste, and raw materials sourced from reputable mills. Factories are located in Europe and the UK. Our London studio is partially powered by solar. Every season we strive to further reduce our ecological impact and work towards sustainability.
