We are very happy to announce the upcoming collaboration between Peter Twiss and Samanta Bullock. Their collaboration started back in 2018 with a fashion show at Fashions Finest. A great admirer of Peter Twiss’ work, Samanta is thrilled to announce that she is creating an inclusive clothing line with the designer.
Peter Twiss is a London based women’s wear designer who started his brand back in 2009. A Central Saint Martins and Surrey Institute of Art and Design alumni, Peter gained work experience with Betty Jackson and Sarah Arnett. He also worked as a freelance designer for various London Boutiques before launching his own label.
Twiss designs contemporary and sophisticated clothing for elegant women made of luxury silk. The designer is mainly known for his unique bombers and jackets adapted to modern urban life.
Having spent most of his childhood in Assam, North East India, he was inspired by Indian tailors to pursue a fashion pathway. Consequently, his signature style is deeply linked to his childhood roots with an important focus on luxury silks.
Sustainability lays at the heart of the company with a careful development process around the salvaging of luxurious silk fabrics. The brand experiments with various techniques established over time, which led to the invention of many unique textures and several bespoke fabrics including his very own silk fur and silk boucle. It also promotes slow fashion and encourages its customers to invest in quality pieces.
Finally, the designer has helped raise funds to improve education and medical facilities along with bringing water and electricity supplied to a small rural village in Akuman, Nagaland. Twice a year, he returns to Nagaland where he has a studio and manufacturing base.
