It was whilst training as a saddler at London’s prestigious Cordwainer’s College that Anna Vince first developed an affinity for leather and a love of craftsmanship that would become her signature. The later acquisition of a first class Fashion with Textiles degree from Ravensbourne College lent her work a contemporary edge and a unique aesthetic that consolidated Vince’s position as a sought-after and ward winning designer.

In 2001 Vince scooped Collection on The Year at Graduate Fashion Week – 2001. Shortly afterwards she was given a L5000 bursary by Elle magazine which she used to set up the eponymous label she continues to produce from a small studio in the heart of Greenwich.

In February 2005, after showing her debut accessories collection during London Fashion Week’s ON/OFF event, Vince received orders from Browns Focus and Whistles.

In addition to producing her own ranges Vince has worked as a freelance designer and consultant for clients including Marks & Spencer, Karen Millen and Robert Cary Williams. She has also created two acclaimed, sell-out capsule collections for Topshop.

Her appeal lies in an ability to blend heritage with modernity to create accessories which seamlessly bridge the gap between fashion and tradition.
