about Deborah lyons
Deborah Lyons is synonymous with empowered femininity, effortless and versatile tailoring and a strong point of view. Lyons creates easy-to-wear, beautifully detailed and distinctive designs and collections for women living life according to their rules.
With a background in fine art, designer Deborah Lyons moved to New York in 2005 and enrolled at Parsons to earn a degree in fashion design. Lyons started her career interning with Nicole Miller and then working for twin shoe designers who had a company in New York. After this she moved to Italy, learning shoe making in the Marche region where she designed and developed a small collection which was quickly picked up by Harrods, Dover Street Market, Liberty, and Matches amongst others.
Simultaneously she became the designer of a tailoring brand based in New York, with the collection sold to Browns, Henry Bendel, Intermix and Takashimaya.
A decision to move back to London led Lyons to put the brands on hold and move instead into design consultancy in various capacities for companies which have included J Mendel and Melissa Odabash, as well as a variety of young fashion labels. In late 2016 Lyons partnered up with buyer and boutique owner Kamelia Kamel to launch Deborah Lyons. Kamelia’s invaluable retail experience and business acumen, as well as her innate sense of style have given a dynamic foundation to the young British brand.
Inspired by the rich history of British tailoring, the label is founded on transitional, timeless, and effortless styling, exclusively made from the best British and European fabrics. Deborah Lyons is known for its strong silhouettes, modern femininity, high quality, and for delivering iconic wardrobe staples.
Lyons' inspiration comes from the incredible women she has had the good fortune to meet along her journey and she designs for these women and for other female leaders of tomorrow. She is dedicated to building a company committed to giving back to the community around her, driving social change, empowering other women, and pioneering sustainability efforts in the luxury fashion market.
