After graduating in 2007 David Longshaw received a flurry of press attention and nominations for International Awards (ITS6, Trieste, Le Vif Weekend, Belgium, Cove Park, Scotland) and had secured a position at Alberta Ferretti before his final graduate collection was even shown. Although very keen to launch his own label he felt it was important to gain more internationally commercial experience, so went on to work for Max Mara.
David is now concentrating on his own label which he launched during February LFW 2010. David has been shortlisted for a wealth of awards, including being named as one of the ‘Designers To Watch 2011’ by vogue.com and one of ‘The Rising Stars of 2011’ by ELLE. With not only a natural talent for fashion, but also for illustration (winner of the Colin Barnes Drawing Prize 2005) he has contributed to a number of publications (including vogue.com, the LFW newspaper and Fashion156.com) and uses his illustrations and story writing as a starting point for his collections
David Longshaw’s collections including garments, bags, scarves, jewellery and illustrations are sold worldwide including Britain, USA, Japan, Dubai, Ryhad, Amsterdam, Hong Kong amongst others.
