You may have noticed that I’m having a big print moment. Me and the rest of the world it would seem. If I were in the habit of buying clothes, they would all be patterned like exploding rainbows. Or, failing that, they would be by David Longshaw. One part illustrator, one part fashion designer, his garments are delicious pieces of wearable art. His wonderful drawings create narrative on top of some seriously wearable shapes. Each dress tells part of a story, but don’t let that put you off, the focus is 100% on creating garments meant to be worn.
An RCA graduate, he first showed his own line as Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s “One to Watch” in AW10, and then won the BCF/ Elle Talent Launch Pad for SS’11. He also is editor of Maudezine, which is possibly the cutest thing ever. And while his website is a pain in the breasticles to navigate, we’ll let him away with it for the his beautiful illustrations on beautiful clothes. Expect to hear more from this guy in the future!
P.S. If you are David Longshaw’s PR, please send us better images to oogle his clothes with please and thank you.
