Sian Evans Fashion
Sian’s wide experience of fashion, fine jewellery, consultancy, and lecturing has informed her recent collection, Botany, shown at Paris Fashion Week. Here the 19th century botanical illustrations of Walter Hood Fitch meet Alexander Calder’s mobiles, in a riot of form and colour.
Brought up in a family of artists, scientists and professors, Sian became interested in art, archaeology, fashion and geology from a young age. An odd mix, but a perfect backdrop for the study of jewellery design. After studying in London, she started showing silver collections at London, Paris and New York fashion weeks. These collections sold globally to stores including Selfridges, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Barneys, Isetan amongst many others; in addition she designed collections for Paul Smith and Michiko Koshino.
In 2001 she took a position at Central Saint Martins where she taught and influenced a new generation of jewellery designers. During this time she deepened her research into ancient technologies and sustainability, further developing her personal design direction.
At the end of 2014 Sian left academia and returned to her Clerkenwell studio full time. Since then she has designed and made high fashion collections for Palmer//Harding, Kalmar and Borgo de Nor as well as creating precious jewellery collections. Her first new fashion collection for Sian Evans Jewellery for many years was presented at Paris fashion week in September 2017.
