British designer, David Longshaw, studied at Central St Martins and the Royal College of Art, before graduating in 2007. Post college, Longshaw received numerous awards nominations and high profile press coverage, and secured a design position at Alberta Ferretti, before his show at Graduate Fashion Week.
Although very keen to launch his own label, he felt it was important to gain more international commercial experience, so went on to work for Max Mara.
Now concentrating on his own label, he continues to consult for international fashion houses. With not only a natural talent for fashion, but also for iIlustration (winner of the Colin Barnes Drawing Prize 2005), he has contributed to a number of publications (including THE END magazine and 'The Daily'- London Fashion Weeks newspaper) and uses his illustrations and story writing as a starting point for his collections.
