I managed to take some overall pictures and picked out my top 3 English startup brands which caught my eye. Check out their Instagram accounts and follow these incredible new and up and coming British brands I think which are going to be big and well known in the near future!

Emma Shipley

My top pick of new up and coming British brands goes to  Emma Shipley. If you haven’t heard of her work, then you need to see her Instagram. Currently, her incredible illustration interior designs are in Harrod and liberty. I’m a textile designer myself and when I see something this good, I know we will hear her name for a long time! Have a look at her Instagram and see her amazing talent for yourself!

Never Fully Dressed

I absolutely love this brand. If you looking for a leopard print, then look no future. This cool young British brand already has 232K followers on Instagram and is a name not to be forgotten, check out their instra!


Autumn Winter is always all about outerwear, and if you’re looking for something practical but very much on trend, then you need to look at Ducie. With 54K Instagram followers, they know how to design an outstanding quality jacket. Get online and start purchasing those outwear pieces.
