At Batch LDN we don’t underestimate the value of people. In fact, we put people at the very top of our agenda. We set out on a mission to curate a team of industry experts and creative intellects that could support our vision.
From fashion design, to photography; graphical creation to garment production, we have cherry-picked talented people. Brilliant people with the technical aptitude to elevate Batch to the lofty heights we have for it. We call these people ‘Our Community’, and we’re proud to work alongside them.
Our Community is always growing. However, to rewrite the way we consume fashion it must continue to grow. It must flourish into something far bigger than just our team. As a collective, we can make meaningful change. We welcome you to join to Our Community of forward thinking people that will challenge and revise fast fashion’s shameful culture.
So without further ado, it is our pleasure to introduce you to Our Community:
Our fashionista. Our technical expert. Christina is a talented fashion designer with a multitude of brands under her belt, from Alexander Wang to Marc Jacobs. Alongside her passion for conscious start-ups, Christina has her own mindfully-made, Irish-Linen clothing line. Christina has supported our vision to ‘redefine the suit’ from day one, playing a pivotal role in our garment creation process. She is a true delight to work with.
If you go hunting for a pattern cutter in London, Crista’s name will come up. And for good reason: she’s skilled, accurate and incredibly experienced. If pattern cutting is new to you, it’s how you interpret your design, translated onto paper, so it can be made into fabric. When we visited Crista’s studio, we instantly knew she fit right into Our Community. She’s funny, super talented and has been paramount in ensuring our design work is interpreted correctly by manufacturers.
Our Production Partners:
Our production facility in Portugal know their shit when it comes to suits. Their textile knowledge and production expertise have been essential to our success in creating a ‘redefined suit’. They have refreshing perspective on new ideas, resolutely backing Batch LDN’s vision from our very first conversation. We know we’re in good hands with them.
An accomplished Director and Photographer with an acute eye for what looks good. Wij has guided the artistic direction within Our Community, providing his all-encompassing, creative dexterity whenever called upon. Day to day, he manages his own independent Advertising and Production Studio; skills and experience we regularly benefit from. He’s often the man behind the lens. But to us, he’s so much more than that.
Josh is someone that we always aspired to work with. A true creative in every sense of the word. A man whose work we’ll let do the talking. We originally approached Josh as a friend and artistic soundboard, but as we got talking, there was synergy and opportunity for us to collaborate. Josh heads Batch LDN’s professional photography and creative direction. A real visionary that knows what looks good. We’re fortunate and excited to have Josh in Our Community.
The Founding Team: Sam, Julian & Emmy:
Lastly, a warm welcome to the Batch LDN Community from Sam, Julian and Emmy. The people driving the vision forward. The team that is devoted to creating a redefined suit that advocates freedom of expression and individual style. They are passionate about building a community of progressive minds that want to enact real change in the fashion industry.
Between them, they boast a wealth of experience in retail and marketing, with a particular interest in workwear fashion. Like many, they work in London, but often find their outfits struggle to find the balance between smart and casual. And frankly, they are bored of suits: they’re outdated and lack functionality the modern work environment needs. So, they’ve curated the perfect solution. And it’s Batch LDN.
