Our Story

Discover the very best independent, eco friendly luxury fashion brands!

Brooks & Sharpe is an online platform that curates the very best in independent, eco friendly luxury fashion brands. We curate brands that are passionate about their craft and desire to do better in the fashion industry. Although these brands are small and sometimes new to the industry, they are producing fashion in a way that empowers communities, pays everyone involved in the production cycle a fair wage, responsibly sourcing fabrics, produce fashion in limited quantities and make high quality clothes that last.

All of the styles you’ll see on our site are limited editions, specialist collections, and even one-off pieces, so we’re sure you’ll find something unique to you. Style is about making a statement, and let’s face it, nobody wants to run into their rival wearing the exact same outfit! Trust us – we’ve been there, and that’s why our brand exists today.

We never promote brands or designers who use real fur in any of their collections for Brooks & Sharpe – or for anybody else. We’re animal lovers and stand against animal exploitation. We’ll wear the prints, but never the pelts.

 

Who are we

Put simply? We’re Joel Brooks and Pam Sharpe.

Together, we’ve created an online shopping experience that brings together the best of what luxury fashion brands can offer, along with exciting new creations from independent designers from around the world – all in one place.

There’ll be brands you already love, and brands you’ll wish you’d heard of sooner. The fun is in the finding!

Welcome to Brooks & Sharpe.

What we do

Our platform was born out of greenwashing frustration and difficulty finding truly eco-friendly brands. Greenwashing is that thing corporates/bigger brands do by exaggerating positive contributions to ethical and sustainable fashion while distracting you from ongoing mass production of fast fashion and appalling working conditions for the people who mass manufacture these garments for them. Sorry but cheap recycled polyester made in a sweat shop somewhere just doesn’t cut it!

As the old (and yes a bit of a cliche) saying goes – be the change you want to see in the world. There are so many incredible small independent brands and designers who live and breathe eco friendly fashion, empowering communities and doing a great deal for our planet one stylish garment at a time – and that is why our platform exists; to sing and shout about them!

We don’t feature just any designer or brand at Brooks & Sharpe – they’re here through invite and application process only. Each chosen designer will only make a handful of each design at any given time, so individuality is the only thing you’ll find in abundance when shopping on our site.
