For nothing, UK is referred to as one of the fashion capitals of the world. It has been amongst the leading producers of world’s most influential fashion designers who have redefined the world of fashion with their innovative concept, tailor-made outfits and unique couture. Their extraordinary contributions have changed the face of British fashion considerably. Did you know that though Paris is the fashion capital of the world, world’s first ever couturier was a British? Charles Frederick Worth, born in England, served as the favoured designer in the courts of Napoleon III. Over the years, Britain has served as the base for numerous fashion designers who have wowed people with their interesting concepts and avant-garde styles. Be it Mary Quant’s cool and modern cutting-edge designs that were break-free from the traditional look or Vivienne Westwood’s punk fashion movement of the 70s, Alexander McQueen’s non-conformist creations or Hussein Chalayan’s experimental designs, British designers have time and again proved their worth on ramps and wardrobes. And then we have Christopher Bailey, the man behind Burberry’s magnanimous outburst in the world of fashion. When Bailey took the creative reigns of the company in 2001, little did anyone know of his plan! He transformed Burberry’ to become the most-sought after fashion brands. He modernized the designs but at the same time retained the quintessential British feel. Go through this section to know about famous British fashion designers, their life and career.
