In 2017, Antonia Foyle founded the British Luxury Brand, Verheyen London. She studied History and History of Art at University and then graduated from Fashion College as a Stylist.
The brand epitomises the romantic and ethereal silhouettes of the bohemian 1970’s and the Edwardian era with a bold modern edge that remains feminine and effortless. The brand has identified a need for high quality outerwear at less expensive prices than the luxury world has to offer.
Verheyen offers women a chance to collect investment pieces, instead of succumbing to the world of “throw away” fashion. All styles are produced in a limited quantity on pre-order only, ensuring that they work on a carefully curated and small-scale production so there is little waste. Working with a number of London based artisans for both sampling and materials, they manage to maintain a low shipping impact and carbon footprint, whilst supporting local businesses in London.
She has always had a love of the history and romance of fashion and for clothes that “tell a story”. Antonia brings you a collection inspired by her Hungarian and Irish heritage and a background steeped in art, literature, music and business. Having been influenced by strong and elegant female figures in her family has brought her to this point; bringing her outerwear designs globally to women. The core business focuses on women’s ready to wear collections and is committed to making outerwear with permanence.
