Jackie Maguire, designer for Maxmara and Nougat London, has launched her own fashion label based near Broadway.
The luxury outerwear designer has settled in the Cotswolds to launch her own ready-to-wear collection of women’s premium coats and jackets.
Jackie decided her career path as a fashion designer from a young age, pursuing her passion through a degree in fashion design, followed by roles at Marks & Spencer and Maria Grachvogel, until she was talent spotted to take up the role as in-house designer for world renowned Italian luxury brand, Maxmara.
Jackie returned to the UK to design for British brands including Nougat London. With 18 years of impressive experience behind her, there was one last ambition to fulfil – launching her own brand.

Jackie Maguire provides the perfect antidote to the over-saturated high street, where customers are quickly falling out of love with fast fashion and the associated over production and watered-down replicas of itself. Jackie has established a brand with a fresh and sustainable ethos, embracing slow fashion, where clothes are made with more thought and care, in small quantities, using limited edition cloths which have been selected for their superior quality. jackiemaguire.com/
