BO CARTER is a unique, independent, ethical fashion brand, creating high quality contemporary garments in a responsible manner. Bo was born in Poland during the communist era, an environment that offered little but empty shelves. Though that did not stop her from creating her own imaginary world of fashion with paper and scissors designing clothes for her paper dolls. Even after moving to England and taking up career as an accountant, fashion was never far from her mind. This obsession led her to create her first collection in 2010. After that there was not stopping her. Bo has since showcased her collections in USA, Malta, India, Iceland and throughout the UK. Bo's vision of fashion is clear: be unique, be hold and most of all be ethical. Ethics and a tough stance against animal cruelty have a special place in Bo's heart, which is why you won't find leather, fur or garments made using child labour or exploitation in any of her collections.
