Royal College of Art MA Fashion graduates Yvonne Lim and Shaonan Xu launched The Array, a London-based womenswear label inspired by the modern day working women, in December 2020. The label is an elevated extension of their 2019 graduate collection, which was about celebrating and empowering the working woman. Upon graduation, they were accepted into the College’s start-up incubator, InnovationRCA to develop and launch The Array brand.
The label’s debut Collection [ 1 ] was inspired by a special series of personal interviews the designers conducted with a diverse group of working women. The designers continue to develop each collection by collaborating with their community.
With a focus on natural performance fabrics, intelligent design and a versatile season-less wardrobe, The Array creates new luxury essentials crafted to be as beautiful as they are functional. The collection is proudly made locally in London with a careful selection of sustainable materials.
