The Hepworth

The latest Nomad Atelier fashion shoot took place at The Hepworth in Wakefield which opened it’s doors in twenty eleven. A modern architectural masterpiece by architect David Chipperfield, the gallery was funded by Wakefield Council, Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England. Along with the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Tate Liverpool it is one of the must see cultural centres from the North of England.

Nomad Atelier

Nomad Atelier is a fashion brand which sources the finest fabrics and then designs, manufactures and retails from their base in South Yorkshire, England. The shop covers three floors, with a cafe on the ground floor and a gallery on the top floor with the clothing collection situated on the first floor. The link below will take you to this beautiful retail outlet located in the former coal mining town of Barnsley.

The shop is focussed on the Nomad label but started life in the clothing emporium Pollyanna. Pollyanna began in 1967 with labels Mary Quant and Ozzie Clarke and grew to sell luxury labels Yves Saint Laurent, Issey Miyake, Jil Sander among many, many more.

Now in it’s new home The Tobacco Warehouse, Nomad is constantly evolving with fabrics and designs to transcend season and gender. The manufacturing is done on the premises, so the fit is customised, which brings something very special to the shopping experience.

What you will notice about the people who work on the shop floor is many years of experience and knowledge about the product they are selling. The people on the shop floor have sourced the fabrics from fairs around Europe so they understand everything there is to know about each garment. In every other clothing store you will not get the fashion buyers and designers working this environment so in it is quite a unique experience in the most wonderful, relaxed environment.
