Founders at Sen Wye, London

 
 
 
 

Charlotte Macke and Holly Keepfer are the duo behind the brand SEN WYE. They met while studying fashion design in London. In 2012, Charlotte and Holly created the brand while working together in New York. They believe in contemporary, minimalistic designs and count classic 1970s to 1990s silhouettes as influences. When they’re not working, you can catch them in the company of friends and loved ones, swimming or reveling in their weekend plans.
