Bianca Elgar is the founder and Artistic director of Bianca Elgar Ltd, the new and modern expression of wearable art and luxury fashion.
Bianca has always been passionate about art and textiles and worked as a silkscreen printer/designer in the studio for many years, mainly creating prints and products for interiors. She has previously studied upholstery and soft furnishing, made her own statement jewelry, as well as embarked on a textile design course. Bianca is now bringing this experience to her eponymous fashion brand.
In 2011, Bianca went to live abroad for 6 months and decided to travel light keeping clothes to a minimum, due to limited space. She decided on her favourite black basics, and a variety of colourful scarves to dress them up with. Bianca was inspired by the opportunity of creating a variety of looks with just a few items, as well as showing off scarf prints in a new way.
It was really this experience that made her realise how versatile and beautiful these silk accessories are, and this inspired her to start her own business in high quality British made, versatile fashion.
