In 1995, after running many successful businesses together, Jane
and Stephen started Stephen Einhorn. Before Stephen ran his
model making agency, Don't Panic, he and Jane worked together
running a jewellery company designing, hand-making and selling
innovative beaded hair combs and stained glass jewellery as part
of the buzzing London punk scene at the time located around
Portobello, Covent Garden, Camden and Kensington markets. As
well as a thriving retail business they supplied esteemed
fashion retailers such as Harrods, Liberty and Biba.
Years earlier, Jane's own career as a maker and designer
started with an apprenticeship at the couture house of Norman
Hartnoll, and tailoress training at Tailors and Cutters Academy
in Bermondsey (responsible for training many of the tailors in
Saville Row. Started in the 17th century, now sadly closed).
This was followed by stints in theatrical costume departments
for various London theatres and the BBC. Jane then consolidated
her training in fashion by becoming a fully trained milliner,
training under Marie O'Hagen at the London College of Fashion.
She went on to run her own clothing and hat company, and as well
as making and selling her own designs herself, she also sold
designs to Jeff Banks for Warehouse, having been interview by
him on the Clothes Show as 'one to watch,' as part of London
Fashion Week. Jane has also turned her making and designing
skills to other pursuits, and has worked as a stylist for a
number of photographers and model makers in film and
advertising, as well as a soft model maker, specialising in
miniature or outsized clothes and hats.
Jane has had another career path entirely running alongside
these businesses, and is also a trained singer and composer.
She started singing with the London Orpheus choir and went on to
complete the post graduate jazz course as singer at the
Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Since then she has worked
as a singer, and written production music and string
arrangements for various pop artists. She has a Masters degree
in Orchestration for film and television from the London College
of Music and Media and has conducted big bands as well as the
BBC concert Orchestra.
Jane has spent many years juggling two careers; writing
library music in her own studio and, with Stephen, running
Stephen Einhorn. There as well as running the core business with
Stephen, she designs the pearl range, writes the content for the
website and oversees the shop, designing all of the innovative
and quirky window displays.
And if that isn't enough, She has recently learnt to speak
spanish and she makes a mean cup of tea.
