Jade Holland Cooper
Dubbed one of the trendiest young fashion designers, Jade Holland Cooper founder and owner of Holland Cooper Clothing Ltd, started the business at just 21 after turning down unconditional offers at LCF and Central St Martins; opting instead for the Royal Agricultural College where the idea for Holland Cooper was born. “There was simply nothing to wear to country events with any style or individuality, so I set about creating my own" says Jade. She may have been discouraged to leave the RAC by her fellow students but Jade has defied all discerning onlookers and built a name for herself creating a sought after label to lead the movement for 'British Made' brands.
Jades roots lie in the countryside, but her love for fashion and London’s city glamour shines through in all her pieces. She is determined to keep her brand British made and says she will avoid making oversees at all costs. Jade has created a thriving fashion business within the heart of the countryside and has proved you do not have to base yourself in London to be a success within the highly competitive fashion world. Her take on tweed and the way it is worn is a breath of fresh air, with slimming lines hugging the female figure for a sassier look and knock out shooting sets destined to have the men drawing their eyes away from their guns.
Jade has not only catered for the women, she has designed fabulous full shooting sets for men with unusual colour combinations that ooze style and individuality along with immaculately cut sporting jackets perfect for a day at the races. You can expect colourful suede’s on the under collars and limited edition silks on the inside pockets for a quirky touch that makes Holland Cooper a must have.
Within her Suffolk based studio you can find cutters hand cutting garments for individual clients and a hive of activity sending garments all over the world. Hanging on the rails you will discover beautifully tailored three piece suits, ¾ length coats elegantly trimmed with ostrich skin and hacking jackets adorned with suede fringing balanced with equally impressive skirts to match.
Hard working and driven, Jade is an inspiration to all young people in these tough times, proving that if you work hard you can achieve your goals. Holland Cooper was born, has grown and subsequently succeeded within a recession. This colourful figure is the epitome of her own brand and creation. Once met she is not forgotten and the same is to be said for the label itself. Holland Cooper is destined for success. Watch this space.
