After 2 years, she embarked on a solo journey and launched Maise - her own ready-to-wear label focusing on fashion and denim - this sucessful venture for Claire lead to her appointment as Senior Designer at sass & bide - Denim and Knitwear Specialist. sass & bide laid the organic foundation for what would become the ultimate C.T and P.E creative hub. It was only a matter of time and so fitting, that Claire and Pip would join forces to pursue their own vision, a shared vision of P.E Nation.
