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 a 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 no stopping her. Bo has since showcased her collections in USA, India, Malta, Iceland and throughout the UK.
Bo’s vision of fashion is clear: be unique, be bold 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.
Bo won the title of ‘Best Local Designer’ in the 2011 Leeds Retail Awards, followed by the title of ‘Leeds Most Stylish Women’s Independent Retailer’ in the 2012 Radio Aire Awards. Though her proudest award to date was when she was named ‘Most Talented New Designer’ in the 2013 PETA UK Vegan Fashion Awards.
