About: Jigsaw is a contemporary British fashion brand founded in 1972, creating beautiful and timeless clothes and accessories for women, men and children.

We believe in Style & Truth; that everyone should feel empowered to embrace their own style, be true to themselves, and not slavishly follow the fashion world.

This means putting style before trends and truth before hype.

It also means we focus on everything that matters, creating clothes that are cut with integrity and finished to the highest standards, with beautiful fabrics that will last you a lifetime.

Our store teams are carefully recruited to offer friendly, knowledgeable and impartial advice in a relaxed environment and new stock is delivered weekly, ensuring shops remain fresh.

  • Handle all incoming press enquiries via phone and email.
  • Liaise with buying department to source samples for journalists.
  • Maintain the journalist and blogger database.
  • Arrange deliveries to journalists and contact to follow up.
