We’d like to introduce you to a few of our creative geniuses who are responsible for creating remarkable styles season after season. Keep reading to find out more about their incredible jobs…

What are the themes for autumn and how does this start the process off?
This season the themes are Romantic Reflections and Mythical Enchantment. We start the process off by looking at the trend predictions, but we tweak them to make them our own.

Where does your inspiration come from?
We get inspiration from many places - where we travel, vintage markets, Pinterest, shopping, fabric markets, textiles and home goods.

Where’s the most exciting place you’ve visited on your travels and why?
Miami is a very exciting place, it’s very vibrant and has many different influences, especially Latino and Cuban. We also take inspiration from the Art Deco architecture. The nightlife is amazing and there are lots of different areas in Miami, which are all different vibes, from South Beach, Downtown, Wynwood, Design District, Little Havana to Coral Gables.

Which garment is your favourite from this season and why?
The Winters Flowers Dress, is by far my most favourite garment. The shape is super flattering and the print is stunning, with just the right level of colour.

What do you love about working at Joe Browns?
I love the freedom to create whatever I want!

What gives you the most satisfaction from your role?
Seeing the customers love my creations.

What’s the most fun thing about your role?
I’m lucky enough to get to travel the world with my job.

When was the last time you did something for the first time and what was it?
I zip lined from a volcano in Costa Rica on my last holiday - I won’t be doing it again!

Where does your inspiration come from?
All sorts of places. Art, illustration and tattoos are a great source of inspiration for me when it comes to print. For silhouettes I love looking at vintage clothing and subculture dressing.

Where’s the most exciting place you’ve visited on your travels and why?
I think I would have to say Delhi India. I first went there for work back in the late 90’s and it was such a culture shock. But the people were so friendly and in such chaotic hustle and bustle, I loved it. It’s incredible to see just how much it’s changed since then.

Which garment is your favourite from this season and why?
I think from this season I’d pick The Delightful Knitted Top because it’s a bit of a new take on a knitted top, in terms of incorporating the more flowing/feminine elements in the knit instead of adding lace. It adds interest without making the garment too fussy.

What do you love about working at Joe Browns?
I love the creative freedom here. Every concept is a possibility and in terms of design we’re not tied by the restrictions like many brands. I also get to work with a great team.

What gives you the most satisfaction from your role?
It’s hard to say as each stage of the process has its own rewards. But I love seeing how happy the product (and Joe Browns in general) makes our customers feel whenever we get to meet them. They’re so enthusiastic about Joe Browns, it’s truly infectious and makes you want to do your very best for them each season.

What’s the most fun thing about your role?
The best thing is seeing everything come together. I still get excited when the new samples arrive, and we get to see our creations.

When was the last time you did something for the first time and what was it?
Just yesterday I learnt two close-up magic tricks - random I know!

Where’s the most exciting place you’ve visited on your travels and why?
I went to Bali on my honeymoon – it was unlike anywhere I had been before with amazing food, culture and wildlife. It was the first time I tried white water rafting which was fantastic!
