About Us

Relaunched in January 2019 

 

Bow Savile started off as a luxury British brand for professional women. We wanted to take the hassle out of shopping and dressing for work by providing clothes that echo the wearer’s professionalism and competence. We believe great clothes can be a real confidence booster.

Built around the concept of ‘slow fashion’, Bow Savile aims to produce quality clothes that will become keepers and form the basis of a work capsule wardrobe. Designed by real women for real women.

As a new business we are passionate about building a business wear brand with ethical and sustainable foundations, that women will want to wear year after year. Our aim is to encourage customers to invest in timeless pieces they can feel proud to wear, not only for their quality of design, but for their positive contribution.

The Clothes

Co-ordination. The collection has been designed to co-ordinate, making it easier to plan daily outfits and mini capsules for a week or a business trip. The garments offer a flexible, neutral base that enables the wearer to move effortlessly through seasons and coordinate with fashion trends.

Practical. Where ever possible we have chosen fabrics that are crease resistant, stretchy and washable. And shush, don’t tell anyone but we are secretly putting pockets back into women’s clothes.

Comfort And most importantly, we’ve concentrated on fit. Sitting at a desk all day or on business trips comfort is paramount without compromising style.

Are aim is to create clothes that look good on models and real women.

Bow Savile's Founder, Sarah Kane

“Business formal dressing is still expected and too often women wear the ´male uniform´ which does not make the right impact. We've created a collection that will make women feel confident, comfortable and effortlessly fabulous at the same time. Women are making huge leaps in many professional fields, yet with all this professional success the fashion industry hasn’t kept up with the needs of professional women. Traditional tailoring relies on the silhouette shaped by men's suits which fails to flatter the female form. At Bow Savile we believe that we can do our little bit to help professional women keep breaking glass ceilings by making shopping for professional workwear easy.”

Production Ethical and sustainable.Manufacturing to be done in an environment that is beneficial to both the worker and the employer. Quality fabrics sourced close to our manufacturing base to reduce environmental impact.

Packaging, simple and clean to enable reuse and requiring no extra manufacturing process.

 

Made in the UK 

Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the real cost of cheap clothes. It is incredibly challenging to build a business like this from scratch, but we believe that many consumers want to spend consciously and responsibly. Using their spending to support organisations that make a difference.

We are striving to build a business that is ethical and sustainable; we’re certainly not perfect, but we are heading in the right direction. All our clothes are made in the UK, the majority of our fabrics are sourced from Europe and much of our packaging is recyclable.

We actively chose to produce in the UK. We wanted to meet the tailors and seamstresses who work on our clothes. We wanted to see that our business was having a positive effect on their lives. So we are incredibly pleased to be collaborating with a UK social enterprise, dedicated to retraining and reintroducing people back into the textile industry.

We are building Bow Savile one button and stitch at a time. Our priority is to find sustainable and ethical suppliers at all stages of our supply chain. If you are one such supplier please get in contact, we would love to work with you.

Women are still a very long way away from achieving gender equality in many aspects of their lives, be it educationally or professionally. Bow Savile is based on an idea of wanting to create a positive cycle of change. We have a long term goal to reinvest the majority of our profits into education and employment projects to help women locally and globally, we hope to leave a positive clothing footprint. Thank you for your support, your feedback is incredibly welcome. Love from all at Bow Savile.
