Fashion eCommerce platform Net-A-Porter has joined forces with The Prince’s Foundation to launch a responsible and ready-to-wear luxury womenswear capsule collection.

The carbon-neutral collection will feature 13 pieces that have been designed to align with the company’s sustainability and circularity design guidelines.

“We hope that consumers value fashion differently with a greater understanding of the skill and expertise involved at every stage of the production,” said Jacqueline Farrell, education director of The Prince’s Foundation at Dumfries House.”

Seeing the artisans develop their skills over the course of The Modern Artisan has been a source of pride for everyone involved, and we can't wait to see the impact they all make in the industry as they enter the next stage of their career."

The design takes inspiration from the Highgrove Gardens, which The Prince’s Foundation maintains. The collection has been recognized for its sustainable and organic approaches to agriculture and horticulture.

To help with the creation of the collection, artisans were supported by industry experts from YOOX Net-A-Porter, The Prince’s Foundation, and several mentoring designer brands, including Gabriela Hearst, Nanushka and Stella Jean.

The program allowed artisans to focus on advanced technical production skill development relating to sewing, pattern drafting, and quality control, while also developing expertise in handling wool, cashmere, and silk to ensure their garment finishes met the luxury market standard.

Additionally, participating artisans were given access to YOOX Net-A-Porter customer insights for up to five years to understand long-term customer preferences and design for longevity.

“We have been blown away by this group of next-generation artisans and are delighted to bring this unique collection to NetA-Porter and YOOX customers around the world,” said Alison Loehnis, interim CEO of YOOX Net-A-Porter.

"With sustainability principles applied throughout the design and production process, the collection aligns with our ambition to drive a more sustainable and circular fashion system. We are grateful for The Prince's Foundation's partnership and commitment to protecting heritage skills that are the essence of luxury."

The collection will be available exclusively on Net-A-Porter and YOOX, with 50% of the RRP being donated to The Prince’s Foundation to support its training programs.
