The UK has been an uneasy place for residents in recent times - the youth have been faced with the now limited future Brexit would present as well as multiple traumatic terrorist attacks. Despite those, things are starting to look optimistic as the Conservative Party lost their majority in the latest election, and young people can begin to feel hopeful once again.

That said, Phoebe English who is a young UK designer living amongst the tense political landscape has designed her most recent 2018 spring/summer collection around the idea of seeking relaxation to feel better.
