Pamela Blundell (1968) is an English fashion designer who proposes timeless items.
The duo Copperwheat Blundell
Her career started with the collaboration with fashion designer John Flett, renowned because of his complex cuts. When Flett died, she accepted a role at the Central Saint Martin’s School of Art and Design, in London, where she met Lee Copperwheat. Together with him, she founded the duo Copperwheat Blundell, which debuted at London Fashion Week in 1993.
The brand, which mixed tailoring references and high-tech fabrics taken from sportswear, was originally specialized in menswear and womenswear clothing, but in time it increased its range of products, also including a unisex line, beachwear, leather goods and knitwear.
In spite of the big success and of the awards won (the Lloyds Bank New Generation Fashion Award in 1994 and the Young Designer of the Year by British Fashion Council in 1995), the company broke up.
Pamela Blundell nowadays
After the break-up, she continued designing for her label, Pamela Blundell Bespoke: she designs tailor-made custom-made pieces (she has a heart to say that she does “tailoring for woman”) which aims at timelessness. They aren’t trendy, they don’t wanna be and so they don’t go out of fashion: it’s this that defines her style.
Her pieces had great success: they indeed appeared on many magazines, such as The Face, Sunday Times Style, Arena, Vogue, Vogue America, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and ID, and they have been worn by celebrities such as Cate Blanchett, Naomi Campbell, David Bowie, Sienna Miller and Cara Delevingne. They are also sold in important department stores, such as Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Saks and Bloomingdale’s.
She also offers consultation services to renowned brands, among which Evisu, Mother of Pearl, Zoe Jordan and Perfect Moment.
