An Artist, Luxury Designer and Creative Consultant Iona Crawford established her eponymous brand in 2007, inspired by nature’s vast beauty, artisanal British cloth and craftsmanship and the desire to combine her two primary passions – fine art and fashion. With her own artwork at the heart of each
collection, the seamless transition from canvas to cloth, garment and interior is harmonious, delivering a timeless yet directional aesthetic.
Since the launch of her brand, Iona has enjoyed success internationally, showing in Paris, Tokyo, London, Beijing and New York.
Renowned for innovative and intricate garment structure fused with trademark tailoring, Iona Crawford collections are unashamedly elegant. While her collections are directional and cement a unique design identity, they consist of rich and tonal fabrics of Scottish origin including cashmere, merino wool and leather,
as well as silks printed with Iona’s painterly artwork. The combination and contrast of each element results in distinctive, innovative collections which transcend fashions and epitomise timeless, contemporary style.
