Phoebe Dahl thinks big. And if her name conjures up images of giant peaches and BFGs, well, you’re on the right track: She is the granddaughter of Roald Dahl and shares a certain penchant for whimsy and storytelling. “I have always lived with my head in the clouds, having dreams bigger than humanly possible,” she says. “I’m the product of growing up in a family that would say that no dream was ever too big.” READ MORE


Phoebe Dahl thinks big. And if her name conjures up images of giant peaches and BFGs, well, you’re on the right track: She is the granddaughter of Roald Dahl and shares a certain penchant for whimsy and storytelling. “I have always lived with my head in the clouds, having dreams bigger than humanly possible,” she says. “I’m the product of growing up in a family that would say that no dream was ever too big.”
Instead of putting her tales down in novels, Phoebe tells them in clothes, in the form of the roomy dresses and the lounge-y overalls that make up her linen-centric line Faircloth & Supply, which she founded in Los Angeles in 2013 after conquering some major wanderlust. Hopping from FIDM in San Francisco to the London College of Fashion, Phoebe then worked as an assistant to a designer in Amsterdam. It was on a business trip to Japan that things clicked for her: “Touring around so many inspiring shops and beautiful linen mills, I left Tokyo with a reignited itch, stronger than ever, to start designing myself.”
And here’s where the story gets even more interesting: Phoebe is hardcore about supporting women’s groups around the world—she’s passionate about donating uniforms to schoolgirls in Nepal, and her next venture is sourcing fabrics hand-printed by artisans in Africa. She has some major plans for expansion, too. “Next could be woven backpacks and espadrilles from Mexico, and beautiful soaps and lotions from France!” she explains. “The options are endless, but one constant binds them together: Everything will be made by, or will benefit, women who live in economic strife and otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to lift themselves and their families out of poverty and into society.” That’s a narrative we can most definitely get behind. —carly pifer
