History Of The Garment 

Janice Wainwright was born in Chesterfield in 1940. She studied at the Wimbledon School of Art, Kingston School of Art, and the Royal School of Art in London. She created her own label, “Janice Wainwrightat Forty Seven Poland Street”, in 1970 and in 1974 the label became “Janice Wainwright”. She was well-known for her long lean shapes, sinuous seaming and use of the bias cut. She favoured matt jersey, crepe and soft wool fabrics, which she manipulated into swirling, spiraling outfits that were often full-shouldered.
