Our Story

In 1979 Patsy Seddon was a young mother with young children who found it impossible to find practical, fashionable clothes that were affordable and sophisticated - so she designed her own, and London-based brand Phase Eight was born.

We believe you should never underestimate
the power of the perfect dress

Over 30 years later, Patsy's freedom of expression is something that we still keep in mind today. Whether it's a Mother of the Bride outfit, a race day jumpsuit or party dress, we love being part of our customers' special occasions, and focus on flattering day and evening silhouettes in quality fabrics, that women of all ages can look and feel their best in.
