Bebaroque was established in 2007 by Mhairi McNicol and Chloe Patience, both of whom completed their BA(hons) in Textiles at the Glasgow School of Art in 2005 and then went off separately to gain Master degrees in Textiles and Fashion. Both Chloe and Mhairi separately began designing leg wear and decided to join forces, creating something very special and unique to the market. With Mhairi’s elaborate hand embroidery and Chloe’s intricate drawing skills upon hosiery, a truly innovative design process was developed; each one of Bebaroque’s designs is hand-drawn and sampled in the studio by Patience and McNicol, with the hosiery being hand-screenprinted and hand-embroidered in Scotland ensuring the highest standard of quality while supporting their home country.
Bebaroque offers two collections a year and each season sees them expand and develop what is already a very successful line. The brand also recently expanded its product portfolio to encompass bodywear, bridal hosiery, silk scarves and leather gloves, which all carry the Bebaroque handwriting and have been extremely popular with customers and in particular, stylish songstress Paloma Faith.
Bebaroque is stocked in high-profile stores such as Liberty, Harrods, Selfridges and Urban Outfitters, as well as around thirty independent boutiques in the UK. You can also buy Bebaroque online here. (Prices range from £30 – £800).
This season, Bebaroque is showing for the first time at London Fashion Week in collaboration with PPQ, meaning there’s no better time to cement your fashion credentials by showing off your legs in the very fashionable hosiery by Bebaroque.
