English born Sir Gareth Pugh, has been a designer for over 29 years and is considered one of the most promising names of his generation. He is most famous for his collection using balloons to accentuate the joint and limb areas of his designs (a technique that would become one of his trademarks). He has also won fame as a designer who explores different forms, shades and mediums to create his unique and stand-out pieces.
Pugh himself describes his designs as being "about the struggle between lightness and darkness." Gareth Pugh has also been labelled as the "latest addition to a long tradition of fashion-as-performance-art” that stretches back through Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, and Vivienne Westwood (one of Melissa’s most famous collaborators).
In 2008, he achieved one of the greatest fashion honours, becoming the newest member of superpower editor Anna Wintour’s entourage. Gareth Pugh has many famous muses and has dressed celebrities including Kylie Minogue (who wore his designs throughout her Showgirl tour), Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Ashlee Simpson.
Melissa is very excited to add Gareth Pugh to our ever-growing list of amazing collaborators.
