The Christopher Kane brand was founded by the designer in 2006 upon his graduation from Central Saint Martin’s College, London.
He has developed a reputation as one of the most talented and innovative British designers. His brand is known for its inventive and imaginative fashion, offering classic yet subtly daring designs. Originally focused on ready-to-wear for women, the brand expanded into menswear in 2010.
The company is based in London and sells across the world.
Scottish born Christopher Kane’s designs creatively fuse fabric, colour and print. The Christopher Kane label is a key contributor to the seasonal trends, demonstrating a contemporary, progressive vision.
Christopher first came to the attention of the fashion world on delivering an award-winning collection at Central Saint Martins College in March of 2006. His first independent show followed in September of that year in London.
Christopher Kane, the label, has since become a highlight of the London Fashion Week schedule and Christopher, working in tandem with his sister, Tammy, has now shown for 14 seasons and become a major player within the industry. Until Fall 2012, Christopher was the design lead for Versus working closely with Donatella Versace on eight women’s wear collections. In May 2009, Christopher launched a line of t-shirts featuring a monkey print that rose to iconic status. He launched his first resort collection in November 2010 along with his first menswear collection in the same year.
Christopher Kane has received several industry accolades in recent years including winning the highly acclaimed Vogue/British Fashion Council Fashion Fund.
