Sister Jane is a London-based fashion brand, creating unique, vintage-inspired designs. Never the quiet one, we combine whimsical eccentricity with a distinctive style signature. Pieces emphasise unique, unexpected details that are colourful, fresh, and trend-led, while carrying a retro nod.  
 
Instead of following the traditional fashion calendar, Sister Jane launches a new capsule collection every 6 weeks, allowing the brand to offer a continuously refreshed range of new, up-to-date styles.  
 
Our Sister Jane townhouse is the creative hub where everything begins. Located in the charming area of Notting Hill, this is where our (very international) team designs and conceptualises every last detail.
