THIS YEAR MARKS A RATHER IMPORTANT MILESTONE - TEN YEARS OF EPONINE! ANNIVERSARIES MUST BE CELEBRATED, AND WE'VE GOT A FEW TRICKS UP OUR SLEEVE IN THE COMING MONTHS TO DO EXACTLY THAT.
We’ll leave the past decade to the Founder herself to describe, but as she does, we thought we'd take you on a trip down memory lane to where it all began.
We have curated a collection of Couture designs, selected from each year since the very beginning in 2011.
What a decade it’s been. Here’s to the next!
JET: It is almost impossible to believe that this year we are celebrating Eponine’s tenth anniversary. I remember walking in the mountains with my husband when I first tentatively broached the idea. Thank goodness he loved it and thank goodness he, and the rest of my tribe, were all ‘in’ and allowed the business to start from home.
After a few false starts I found Petar, or Pep as most of you know him, which was the first pivotal moment. I feel so lucky that he is still with us and leads the creative team with his outstanding eye for design and precision.
In 2016 our big breakthrough came. The excitement, the madness, the orders, the Press that came with that period was something we were utterly unprepared for. We loved every second of it and we haven’t looked back since.
In 2017 we were finally able to leave home and move into our current studio in Adam and Eve Mews. I love my team and can safely say that all the banter, hard work and never-ending creativity is what makes it all so worthwhile. Each and every one of us cares deeply about the work we do here at Eponine. Making the journey from the start to finish as fun and personal as possible for clients has always been the most important thing for us.
I feel hugely privileged to have met so many of you, either in person or on email, and long may this Eponine journey continue. With two members of my family now part of my team, Nina and Christopher, I am hopeful that I might be writing another of these messages in 10 years time!
Let’s keep that dream alive!
With much love to you all,
