David Longshaw, St Martins (BA hons), RCA (MA). After graduating in 2007 David received a flurry of press and nominations for International Awards. He secured a position at Alberta Ferretti even before his final graduate collection was shown. Although keen to launch his own label he felt it important to gain some international commercial experience and went on to work for Max Mara. In tandem he has pursued his natural talent for illustration which is where many of his designs find their beginnings.
David won the BFC Elle Talent Launch Pad which has even further raised his profile and saw Helena Christensen wearing one of his creations in ELLE. VOGUE have named David as one of their "Designers To Watch" and ELLE as one of their "Rising Stars".
'ONCE UPON A TIME WAS NOT HOW IT STARTED- THE STORY OF MAUDE'
'Welcome to my world. Before we even get to the clothes, it's all about the story with David Longshaw'- Jessica Bumpus, September 2011 Issue, British VOGUE.
'Doug cut a forlorn figure. Appealingly dejected, worn down by the troubles of the world and his own internal struggle. That Doug was a teddy bear/dog had never diminished the the sense of sorrow I had for his predicament'.
"SS13 is essentially Eva's summer wardrobe-from morning beach strolls to transitional day and early evening drinks, to summer evenings.
The prints chart Eva and Doug's escapades taking their cue from the imagery of the tale. They show illustrations of aeroplanes, buckets and spades and sandcastles mixed in with my photography. There's even a scan from Eva's dress worked in with my drawings."
