Charles & Patricia Lester

Fashion & Textiles

Fashion and textiles artists creating luxury women's wear and interiors.


Over the last 50 or so years, Charles and Patricia have carved their own path, mapping out their own unique journey of creativity, invention, and innovation. Untrained and self-taught, their original fashion and textiles have been the primary vehicle through which they have consistently pursued excellence in both their artistry and their business acumen. Over those years, they have dressed some of the most extraordinary women in the world. 


The emergence of each piece created in Charles and Patricia's studios in Abergavenny can be attributed to the Lester's having loved living and working in this part of the world for more than 50 years. Wales has been a constant source of inspiration. They are constantly enthralled by the magical light and colours of the land, seas and skies. 


Inspired by their love of the region and what they see, each experience has given rise to new techniques and innovative approaches to enable them to emulate the ever changing scenery around them.  Each piece embodies their passion for sumptuous textures and patterns, a constant striving for excellence in design and craftsmanship and the delicious play of light and colour that dances throughout the land.
