A true leader in sustainable design, Founder Dr. Bernice Pan built sustainability into DEPLOY’s brand DNA, ‘deploying’ innovative processes to minimise wastage throughout the fashion supply chain whilst maximizing the individual value for customers.
Starting from your real needs - Bernice sees design as an ultimate way of solving problems.
“I love discussing with clients their clothing needs and concerns; then designing these ‘wish lists’ 3-dimensionally into each line and cut of the garment for optimal fit and function. And when I see them lit up feeling confident and beautiful – my job is done!”
DEPLOY has a loyal international following fast expanding beyond its London origin. Our seasonal event and pop-ups around the globe serve this growing network of discerning women that seek style, practicality, and distinction.
