Aitor Throup AW13

DESIGNER NAME: Aitor Throup  

BACKGROUND:
 Aitor was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1980. He arrived in Burnley, Lancashire in 1992. It was in Burnley that he developed a passion for labels such as Stone Island and C.P. Company. A mixture of Aitor’s interest in these products and his own passion for drawing led him to begin a BA in Fashion Design at Manchester Metropolitan University, from where he graduated with first class honours in 2004. In 2006, he completed an MA in Fashion Menswear at the Royal College of Art in London.
He has recently collaborated with Stone Island, C.P. Company, Umbro and Nike. Aitor is currently also working closely with Kasabian as their creative director.

SIGNATURES: “I consider my approach to be that of a product designer, rather than a fashion designer, so every piece for me has an archetypal element of its own within the context of its original concept and / or narrative.”

IDEAL CLIENT: “My work can engage people whether they’re interested in fashion, product design or conceptual thinking. It doesn’t bother me what kind of person reacts to it.”

About thematerialsleuth

I work in the digital industry and this blog is an outlet for things that I admire whether its design, interior, graphic, fashion, styling, industrial, architecture, art, illustration, music or other bloggers etc. I constantly search for different artists who do not grab the media attention or have high profiles brand ambassadors pushing their products.
