About: No Wallflower Project is a luxury womenswear and accessories fashion label for sleep and street. Launched in 2019 at London Fashion Week, creative director and founder, Henrietta O’Connor, takes inspiration from her youth spent in her grandmothers workshop watching her craft elaborate tasselled curtains and upholstery for her clients while sharing in her love of interiors and art history. She combines this with her passion for visual storytelling and an eccentric approach to design.

No Wallflower Project is inspired by the opulence of times gone by and contemporary leisurewear, with a stylish yet comfortable sensibility. Or rather, ‘the art of dressing up and down’. The old and the new are intertwined to create eclectic luxury womenswear and accessories that are timeless yet contemporary.

Thoughtfully designed in the UK and produced in close collaboration with local manufacturers, No Wallflower Project is devoted to zero waste production, striving for responsible design.

An enthusiastic and innovative womenswear Fashion Design Assistant is required for our small but exciting company.  The role offers a lot of opportunity to explore many areas of fashion design and we are looking for someone with a fresh perspective and willingness to push towards unique creative solutions.

  • Produce detailed technical drawings and specifications to send to manufacturers as well as line sheets and instructions for pattern cutters.
  • Research fabrics, trims and liaise with suppliers.
  • Work outside the box and be flexible enough to work outside your area of expertise, as is the nature of working for a start-up company. i.e. working in pop up shops to assist with sales in the shop and other creative tasks.
