Desiree Mejer was born in 1968 in Cadiz, Spain. She came to London in 1992. Her first steps in the fashion field were to freelance design in Germany and the U.K.
Desiree set up own label in 1995 and presented her first collection for Fall/Winter 1997.
Mejer now has her garments selling at over 200 stockists worldwide, including Browns, Selfridges and Harrods in London and Neiman Marcus and Barneys in New York.
Her clothes became a success almost immediately. She began by recycling cashmere knits into ironic patchwork tops. Fake London is now well known for cashmere sweaters and geometric "football" sweaters, as well as innovative knits. Her clothes are always fun, sexy and imaginative. She uses great slogans and images for tops and her denim range.
