The New Pre-Raphaelite Movement is essentially an ideology that promotes creativity, non-conformity and a particular attitude towards art. Particular hallmarks define the fashion associated with this movement but promotion of the values of the Movement is the prime motivation of those involved and that's why we will protect and uphold these even if it means we have to use legal measures to ensure these values are not diluted or adulterated but self serving businesses and individuals who are not supportive of these ethics and are using them as a means to make money; not a means to further the principles the New Pre-Raphaelite Movement stands for and promotes.   


Welcome to the New

Pre-Raphaelite Movement website!

At the end of the 1800s, British art was dominated by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood: Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everest Millais and William Holman Hunt.  The philosophy of these founding brothers was recorded at their first meeting as follows:

1. To have genuine ideas to express.

2. To study nature attentively, so as to know how to express them.

3. To sympathise with what is direct and serious and heartfelt in previous art, to the exclusion of what is conventional and self-parading and learned by rote;

4. And most indispensable of all, to produce thoroughly good pictures and statues.

The mantle of this fervent 'call to arms' for all creatives has inspired a very exciting and innovative trend in feminine subculture fashion, defined and created by the united input of a significant elite at the end of as art became the passion of a small group of individuals...and this is how it all began... 

Based on the philosophy of the original precepts defined by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, the New Pre-Raphaelite Movement, extends these values by advocating the principles of the PRB and extending them to encompass art and creativity in all its forms. 

It operates as a co-operative promoting individual artists, designers, photographers, models, web designers, musicians, jewellers, fashion, sculptors, dancers, singers...any and all facets of creative expression are promoted, supported, encouraged and elevated as the pinnacle of human achievement; self realisation and true expression in every modality is what defines ART to the New Pre-Raphaelite.
