Biography

Based in Edinburgh, Louis is a fashion designer who is fast becoming an asset to the industry.  

During his studies at the Edinburgh College of Art, Louis demonstrated a natural ability for pattern cutting and an innovative and critical approach to fashion design. He produced work of high quality, often employing unconventional working methods to realise his ideas.

Louis is dedicated and meticulous, with a passion and energy for developing his skills. His work is concept-led and makes use of hybrid cloths such as silica, carbon fibre and Vermiculite. 

In 2015, Louis was offered a place to study on a masters course at the prestigious Royal College of Art.

How the Award Helped

Louis received a Dewar Arts Award to support his masters studies. The creative context of the postgraduate course will help Louis to further develop his craft and grow as a designer. He aspires to go on and work in a design or material development position before one day establishing his own brand.



I will use the opportunity at RCA to really focus on my passion for new and adapted fibres and technology within fashion.
