Luxury Designer, Christopher Raeburn said he has chosen items that represent both the brand and Remade Concept for his shows at the Victoria and Albert museum.
The London-based designer took six months to produce the four Fashion in Motion shows displaying key pieces staged in the museum’s Raphael Gallery on 1 April.
Raeburn is known for his distinctive and innovative approach to design, bringing sustainable fashion to a mainstream audience.
Reaburn told munwaiwong.com: "We have specifically chosen items that really reflect the brand very well and particularly the Remade concept."
"It’s of course about sustainability, quality, thinking differently about material use and ultimately what fashion can really be and what it can be made from as well."
Earlier he said: "And so we have just focused on our remade concept and it’s encapsulating our last six years of work for Christopher Raeburn and what you will be seeing this evening will be both mens and womenswear."
Raeburn also highlighted the brand benefits of following in the footsteps of designers including Alexander McQueen, Peter Jensen and Christian Lacroix to show at the V&A.
Raeburn said: "At a very straight forward level, the credibility that comes with showing at the V&A and then also the designers that have shown here before I really hope will help to elevate the work that we are doing."
Raeburn’s ‘Remade’ ethos guides and influences every aspect of his design and development process. The distinctive aesthetic of his collections derives from his use of recycled military fabrics, combining high-end design with sustainable intelligence.
The V&A’s Acting Senior Curator of Fashion, Sonnet Stanfill said: “We are delighted to be showing highlights from Christopher Raeburn’s collections as part of Fashion in Motion. He presents luxury pieces with sustainable integrity.”
