Sade English was formally introduced to the fashion industry as a designer, yet since 2015 she has broken away from the preconceived label by transforming and developing the identity into both a visual and wearable arts brand.
English's singular element signifies the counter-stereotype in both art and design by her having what she calls an "anti-clone" ideology, a concept that expresses her will to "not conform to suit society".
Previously showcasing photography series titled 'Anticlone Identities' in 2015 in 5th base gallery, she selected Individuals for their overall and prominent appreciation for expression and individualism, photographed in her collection titled 'SKIN'. With a total of five exhibitions completed since, combining both wearable and visual arts.
2017 marks a breakthrough year for new visual projects, both in London and abroad, with talks of Tokyo, as well as the revelation of the third collection Embodied which has inspired and featured in her most recent visual works in collaboration with Josh Faux.
