5 Minutes with... Jane Lewis

Goat's Creative Director and Founder talks to La Petite Anglaise about first jobs, the decision to start her own company and what it takes to be successful in fashion.

 

Interview by Ella Catliff. Reproduced with the kind permission of La Petite Anglaise.

 

LPA: What was your first job in fashion and how did you get it?

JL: My first fashion job was assisting Elspeth Gibson. My sister’s PR company represented Elspeth and I just happened to meet her by chance. I had been working in art history and just wanted a change of scenery so I tentatively went to work as Elspeth’s assistant and then increasingly became her design assistant although I had no formal fashion training. From there I just went on to launch Goat.

A Day in the Life: Jane Lewis of Goat

 

British designer Jane Lewis established her label Goat in 2001 after she couldn’t find anything that excited her whilst out shopping.  Her business has been a careful, slow build, but in the last two years has been accelerating fast, and she has been in the public eye for dressing  the likes of Victoria Beckham, Sienna Miller and Gwyneth Paltrow — as well as the most famous of them all, the Duchess of Cambridge.

I first came across the collections on the rail during a press day around ten years ago, and have always been drawn to her simple shapes and clear, bold colour palette: quite simply she makes supremely flattering clothing.  My-Wardrobe describe her offer as ‘Quintessentially quiet, luxurious and effortlessly chic’. I’d day that was about right. So I’m thrilled that Jane, is the next up in my A Day in the Life series, where female entrepreneurs and leaders in ther fields show us what it’s involved in staying at the top of their game.
