Born in Georgia, David Koma moved to Saint Petersburg in 1996 where he studied at the St Petersburg State Academy of Arts and Industry for a BA Fashion Design.
He moved to London in 2003 where he entered the prestigious Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, gaining both a BA (Hons) and MA Fashion Womenswear, going on to win both Best Womenswear Collection (2007) and Harrods Design Award (2009).
His graduate collection of sculptural, body-concious dresses embellished with metal tubes and multicoloured chains won Harrods Design Award and got a lot of press coverage.
This collection revealed David's signature style based on strong shapes and powerful sexuality which he continues to explore.
David Koma AW 2009/2010 will be stocked in Browns Focus.
His final collection inspired by the contrast of the female silhouette and contorted metal, delivers both strong and sculptured shapes yet retains a highly feminine and sexual form, combined with heavy embellishment of metal tubes and multi-colored chains, revealed his signature style based on strong shapes and powerful sexuality.
