The Designers

After meeting as classmates in 2011, Designers Amy Trinh and Evan Phillips graduated from the prestigious Womenswear BA course at Central Saint Martins in 2015.

Following that, Trinh gained extensive industry experience, working in a variety of design houses in London. In 2017, Phillips completed his MA in Womenswear at Central Saint Martins, before stints at several big London brands.

The pair came together to establish their brand WED in January 2019, with the aim of dismantling the outdated rules of occasion wear, using their joint passion for sustainable thinking, craftsmanship and creative draping.

Upon releasing their first collection, WED were named ‘Ones to Watch’ by the NY Times, and between 2019-2021 were Artists in Residence at the Sarabande Foundation, which was established by the late Lee Alexander McQueen.

In 2021, WED were shortlisted for the prestigious LVMH prize and in 2022, were announced as the first official recipients of the HIFI initiative, an award established by HIDDEN AGENCY to support emerging brands.

WED are currently based in Vauxhall, SE London.
