Designers Amy Trinh and Evan Phillips met as classmates in 2011, and both graduated from the renowned Womenswear BA course at Central Saint Martins in 2015. Trinh then gained valuable industry experience at various design houses in London, while Phillips pursued his MA in Womenswear at Central Saint Martins and worked for several well-known London brands.
In January 2019, they joined forces to establish WED, with a mission to challenge the outdated conventions of occasion wear and incorporate their shared values of sustainability, craftsmanship, and creative draping.
WED's debut collection earned them recognition as "Ones to Watch" by the NY Times, and from 2019 to 2021, they were Artists in Residence at the Sarabande Foundation, established by the late Lee Alexander McQueen.
WED was also a finalist for the prestigious LVMH prize in 2021 and was awarded the HIFI initiative in 2022, making them the first official recipients of this award established by HIDDEN AGENCY to support emerging brands.
Today, WED is located in Vauxhall, SE London, and continues to push boundaries with their innovative designs and sustainable practices.
