About BOZENA JANKOWSA - The Label
Bozena Jankowska is a London based label set up in 2016 by founder and creative director Bozena Jankowska. Driven by her passion for sustainability, initially the label started with a focus on small capsule collections that were inspired by and told the story of critical social and environmental issues. The first two collections were inspired by the honey bee and its world which, resulted in Bozena partnering with the organisation Buglife to raise funds for bee conservation work.
Since the launch of her label, it became increasingly clear to Bozena that her customers were placing ever more emphasis on individuality, uniqueness and personalisation when choosing pieces for their wardrobe. These were women who were independent, strong, connected, mindful and creative. Women who were curious, open-minded, expressive and enjoyed discovering and learning new things. Women who expressed themselves through clothing - having an independent style, appreciated thoughtful design, attention to detail, quality and who looked for fashion with a meaning. Combined with a long standing love of tailoring, a passion for slow fashion and believing that clothes should have meaning for the wearer, led Bozena to explicitly focus the label towards offering beautifully crafted blazers which can be personalised to create a completely unique look for the wearer.
With a passion for beautiful, interesting fabrics and attention to detail, Bozena places an emphasis on sourcing unique end of production and vintage fabrics and buttons so that customer choice remains fresh and relevant.
Although Bozena does not currently offer a made to measure service, she works closely with a London based team of highly skilled pattern cutters and tailors, to offer beautifully fitting blazers across a wide range of sizes.
Through the blazer personalisation experience, Bozena wants to bring the customer into the design process, enabling them to express their own personality and individual style in their choice of blazer style, fabrics, buttons and linings to create a one off perfect blazer.
About Bozena Jankowska
Bozena started her career path by studying Environmental Science, which led her on to finance, where for 16 years, she specialised in Sustaianble and Responsible Investment at a global asset management firm. Sustainability had always been a lifelong passion of Bozena's, so although she had defined a successful career path focusing on her passion, that path gradually become limiting. After a period she realised that her creativity and passion for sustainability were very important to her. Bozena wanted to create something beautiful, that helped women, just like her, to feel effortlessly empowered to express their style whether it be in a professional environment or private life, but never loosing touch with their individuality, sense of adventure or authenticity.
While the label continues to evolve, Bozena remains committed to her values of authenticity, sustainability and mindfulness. She seeks to help women feel effortlessly on point every day of their lives by creating pieces that are beautiful, of the highest quality and have a meaning for the wearer.
