Launched in 2015 by friends Paris Mitchell Temple and Georgia Cherrie, Paris Georgia is both a reflection of its founders and a reaction to the discerning women who form its community. Luxurious fabrics meet silhouettes that stand as an ode to the female form and favour subtle design over seasonal trends. This, combined with the brand’s focus on high-quality textiles and construction has seen Paris Georgia take on a timeless, transcendent quality. Paris Georgia produces womenswear that is inspired by the women who wear it. Women they admire, like their mothers, friends and collaborators. Women who value strength and culture, and who require these ideals within the brands they represent. At Paris Georgia they celebrate women and create to empower modern women of our time.
