Founder & Creative Director

Sara Madderson

Sara established Madderson London in 2012 following a 10-year career in finance. Having harboured a lifelong passion for fashion design, sartorial challenges during her first pregnancy sparked Sara's entrepreneurial spirit. She left banking to embark on her most bold yet rewarding path yet: developing her own label. As creative director, Sara designs both womenswear and maternity collections, deriving inspiration from incredible fabrics and is drawn to rich textures, striking colour combinations and eye-catching prints.

Co-Founder

Helen Hughes

Helen joined Madderson London in 2012 following a career in PR & Marketing for a global tech firm. Partnering with Sara to launch Madderson London was instinctive. Lifelong friends since the age of 11 & a shared conviction of a gap in the market for a British accessible luxury label, the pair work closely across all aspects of the business. Helen is primarily responsible for overseeing the company’s marketing & sales efforts.
