ONEBYME is a gender fluid, urban lifestyle brand based in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
We, Miles Dunphy and Elsa Ellies, Co-Founders of ONEBYME, met in our first year at the Royal College of Art in the MA Menswear Fashion Programme.
At initial glance, one could say we were polar opposites.
Elsa, hand picked by Rick Owens to train with his team of innovative patterncutters in Concordia, Italy; and Miles, urban cool with explosive energy, obsessed with rhythm, movement, and dance.
ONEBYME is the collision of our two worlds and is a reflection of who we are as people.
We engineer garments from ONE piece of cloth to allow everyone the freedom to live, move and breathe in ONEBYME.
Our innovative method of garment construction is revolutionary. We have not only streamlined the production process thereby reducing our carbon footprint, but also created a powerful tool to provide employability skills within fashion to those individuals most marginalised from society.
Our aim is to not only address the environmental impact of our creative process, but also consider the social and economic well-being of the United Kingdom as a whole.
ONEBYME is truly the birth of a new movement.
