Mother of Pearl, for a sustainable fashion that knows no limits nor compromises

Discover the story of Amy Powney, the young mum, designer and sustainability advocate behind the Mother of Pearl collections.

The story of Amy Powney, creative director of sustainable eco-friendly brand Mother of Pearl, is proof that in the end hard work pays off. In just 13 years, Amy has in fact gone from sweeping the floor of the cutting room at Mother of Pearl to guiding, with her creative vision, this small big label of green luxury. In 2017, after winning the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund prize, Amy presented ‘No Frills’, the first 100% sustainable collection by Mother of Pearl, and shifted the focus of the brand, in order to put our planet and its inhabitants first. Since then Amy has never stopped, and she’s turned her passion for sustainability into a proper mission, even introducing the possibility to rent the British brand’s clothes.
