Designers at Debenhams



Justin Preen

Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi met when they were both eighteen and living on 
the Isle of Man. 

Discovering a mutual appreciation for fashion, together they formed Preen, a brand 
that is today best known for its minimal designs that merge both a masculine and 
feminine aspect. 

Launched in 1996, Justin and Thea - who are now husband and wife - began selling 
clothes that were inspired by Victoriana and punk rock. By 1997, a Preen shop 
opened on London's iconic Portobello Road. 

Famed for its strong silhouettes with an effortless edge, smart modern mood and 
slouchy-futuristic elegance, Preen cemented its international status by opting to 
show in New York in 2007, returning to its London roots in 2012. 

Preen boasts a sophisticated client base including Scarlett Johansson, Sienna Miller, 
Kate Moss and Kirsten Dunst. In addition, the brand now has worldwide success, plus 
a successful menswear and accessory collection which includes bags, belts, purses and

A fabulous inclusion in the Debenhams designer concept EDITION, both designers are 
looking forward to making Preen brand more accessible. 

"We have created a range for Debenhams that will offer contemporary style that is 
easy to wear and in keeping with the Preen handwriting. We thought about real 
women across all ages during the design process; so there will be something for 
everyone regardless of shape or age."
