“My design philosophy has always been simple. I like to make high quality clothes based on classic British traditions, but with a contemporary feel. There are people who do not wish to feel self conscious because of their clothes and I feel such a person responds to clothes that last beyond one season. My clothes are like art, I design carefully edited collections balancing fashion and tradition with individual pieces designed to last and I hope these items will be regarded as the best of their kind.”

Margaret Howell's MHL collection mixes elements of British design traditions to create functional, effortless clothes that can be worn in the real world "where good design is about living with thoughtful style".
