I love my custom shirt bodice! It arrived so quickly (I'm in the U.S.) and it fits perfectly! Nina was a delight to communicate with and her talent and care goes into each one of her clothing pieces. I look forward to wearing my shirt and will definitely be purchasing more from her in the future! I cannot recommend her enough! Thank you again!
Deconstructing classic menswear into contemporary womenswear
I started making things for my first foray into clubbing in the late '90s, utilizing my brothers old Levi jeans (so wonderfully threadbare!) and deconstructing highly flammable colour-popping '60s nightdresses.
I gained a First Class BA(Hons) Fashion Design Degree in 2002 followed by a Masters in Fashion and Textiles in 2003 at the Nottingham Trent University. Winning Young Designer of the Year 2003/2004 for reconstructing Levi 501's: a huge honour and a
coincidental nod to how it all began...
I have been trading under my upcycled womenswear label Enienay since March 2004. I was a permanent feature at Spitalfields Traders Market, London every weekend for 11 years until 2017. Now, having started a family, Enienay ready-to-wear items are only available here on Etsy!
I live in London with my children's book author/illustrator husband Benji Davies. We happily share a studio (sometimes) and tea making duties (all the time).
First Class Degree in Fashion Design, 2002. Masters with Distinction in Fashion and Textiles, 2003, The Nottingham Trent University. Young Designer of the Year 2003/2004, Clotheshow Live supported by Levi's. Lauched womenswear label Enienay, 2004
My super seamstress! I do all the design and drapery.
Thank you for your interest in Enienay, I am happy you have found my shop!
Enienay is an upcycled fashion label, reconstructing menswear and recycled clothing into unique, one of a kind womenswear. Focussing on suiting and tailored pieces, together with my seamstress I create fitted silhouettes, with sculptural 3-dimensional forms and asymmetric lines. A directional but feminine look wearable for work or weekend play; Corsets made from upside down pinstripe suit jackets, Skirts draped from tuxedo trousers, Dresses cut from jacket lapels, cuffs, and colour-popping vintage prints.
I hope you love what you find here!
