Preen was founded in 1996 by Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi, with a joint love of all things Victoriana, a passion for recycling, and with that masculine and feminine, hard/soft mix the couple bring to their designs. Their debut collection at London Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2001 composed of punkish elements; vintage lace and hand crafted effects, this collection received rave reviews, described as a sartorial traditional clash, with a very British sense of tongue-in-cheek chic. Liberty Ross wore their ‘rosary bead’ blouse to the British fashion awards straight from the runway, putting Preen firmly on the fashion map.
English actress Carey Mulligan was named the best dressed woman of the year by Harper's Bazaar magazine.
The 25-year-old Oscar-nominated has been admired for her style since she shot to fame in "An Education", and wowed fashion experts at the Oscars when she wore a stunning black Prada gown covered in hundreds of jewels.
According to the magazine, her unique fashion sense has put her a cut above other style icons including Victoria Beckham, who has her own fashion line, and supermodels Kate Moss and Yasmin Le Bon.
