Renowned British fashion designer, Phoebe Philo reigned French fashion houses, Chloe and Céline. Her tenure at Céline from 2008 to 2017 was iconic and is recognized to have some of the most memorable designs and looks of the house’s history. Before starting at Céline, she took a two year break from the fashion industry to honor and to focus on her maternity and marriage. She was given the opportunity to start at Céline with a new slate. As a working mother, what resonated with her is what women wanted to wear. She wanted minimalism and functionality in her designs. The elegance and luxury of the brand is understated yet confident. Philo is her own best model and designed clothes that were suitable to where she was in life.

“She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. She makes belted linen garments and sashes to sell to the merchants. She makes her own bedspreads. She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns. Her husband is well known at the city gates, where he sits with the other civic leaders.” - Proverbs 31:22-26
