We have been huge fans from Christopher Raeburn now the designer presents womenswear/menswear in Day 2 at London Fashion Week.
According to WWD Ten years after generating buzz with a first collection of eight garments made from military parachute fabric and big ambitions around recycling, Christopher Raeburn is gaining even greater recognition in an industry that is waking up at last to environmental sustainability and responsible design.
As Timberland’s global creative director, the London-based designer sees an opportunity to give his sustainability mission a broader, more global platform, while at his own label, Raeburn has brought on board his brother and fellow designer, Graeme Raeburn, as performance director, a new role.
RÆBURN is a British fashion label with a unique and innovative approach to creating menswear, womenswear, and accessories collections. A graduate of London’s prestigious Royal College of Art, Christopher Raeburn became known for his re-appropriation of military fabrics and in particular for iconic outerwear created from de-commissioned parachutes. The REMADE ethos still guides and influences every aspect of the RÆBURN design and development process; a RÆBURN product is defined by distinctive aesthetic, meticulous detail, considered functionality, and sustainable intelligence.
Christopher’s pioneering work has brought responsible design to a main-stream fashion audience and presents a new definition of luxury with integrity. The brand currently has stockists worldwide and has received an amazing array of media coverage nationally and internationally, reflecting an unusually balanced combination of high concept and commercial awareness.
