Bio:

I am a London based womenswear designer who likes to explore the use of texture, colour and surface design. My textile expressionism is offset with an expert cut. Complex Cloth Intarsia is featured heavily within the brand.

My work is an exploration of silhouette, form and application, taking inspiration from gaiety, frivolity and a sense of fantasy. My designs connect considered construction and technique with an exuberant and joyous spirit. Mixing hand techniques with creative cutting and stitching, the designs take on different dimensions.

Historical movements and moments in popular culture influence my work as well as a high technical standard within design.

I have received fabric sponsorship from Christian Lacroix and collaborated with Andrew Logan on jewellery every season. Luke has received Art and Design Research Institute sponsorship for SS18.

I have shown my collections on schedule during London Fashion Week with On|Off Presents supported by the British Fashion Council.
