DESIGNER NAME: Christopher Raeburn
BACKGROUND: Raeburn graduated from the Royal College of Art nearly four years ago. He freelanced mainly as a pattern cutter before setting up his own studio, and later his label. He comments, “I knew that I wanted to do my own production and because the label’s remade nature is fairly specialist, it’s taken a while to grow to the point I’m at now. I’m excited about the next steps”.
SIGNATURES: “Innovative, functional and fun.”
IDEAL CLIENT: “I think my customer changes a lot but I’d like to think they are looking for something different, ethically intelligent and proudly remade in England.”
TRADEMARK PIECE: “The Pop Out Parka. I take the iconic and trademark shape of the parka and re-develop it into two jackets that can function together or separately through their innovative cut and technique.”
