Antoni Burakowski and Alison Roberts met at St Martins School of Art in 1982, where Antoni studied Fashion/Textiles and Alison studied Fine Art Painting.

From their council flat in Lant Street, London. SE1, they founded the label ‘Antoni & Alison’ in 1987 with £200. They have a conceptual approach, and have always maintained a more ‘Art Studio’ than ‘Fashion studio’ slant. Their 50th collection – ‘Models Walking Up & Down in Dresses’ saw them creating a new kind of ‘artistic couture’ on a flat dress, styled, draped and detailed completely within the print.

Continuously working together for 25 years Antoni & Alison have been creating their work and changing the way that we now look at fashion. They have always maintained that ‘ just because fashion is the way it is, doesn’t mean to say it has to be the way it is’. They currently have their own store, 220 stockists and a large following in Japan and Europe. In 2008 they were given M.B.Es for their work in Fashion and Photography.
