Career[edit]

She was the vocalist of mid-1990s indie bands Powder and Lodger, which she fronted after a brief period at LAMDA, and as a solo-artist under the name Pearl.[9]

In 2001 she launched 'Pearl Lowe', her signature range of lace curtains and cushions.[10] In 2006 she began designing her own bespoke handmade dresses that were sold to Liberty and The Cross in London.[11] She also designs capsule ranges for the budget chain Peacocks.[12]

Lowe published her memoir All That Glitters in 2007, a sombre look at overcoming addiction.[13]

Pearl was briefly the face of Agent Provocateur. Lowe was an ambassador for the homeless charity Crisis, but is now an ambassador for Action on Addiction.[14]

Personal life[edit]

Since 1995 her partner has been Supergrass drummer Danny Goffey, with whom she has three children, Alfie, Frankie and Betty. Goffey and Lowe married on 4 December 2008 in Babington House, Somerset.[15]

She also has a daughter, Daisy Lowe with singer Gavin Rossdale. Daisy is a working fashion model.

Lowe and her family live in the Somerset countryside, after residing in North London for many years.[13] [16]
