Cyprus-born Hussein Chalayan began his fashion career at the prestigious Central St Martins, where his graduate collection was quickly snapped up by luxury designer store, Browns. He shortly launched his eponymous line just one year after his graduation, in 1994, a collection of beautifully tailored ready-to-wear looks with the designer's signature draping techniques and elegant, minimalist aesthetic. Renowned for his unique talent for combining science, technology and high fashion, the designer has won a series of accolades including British Designer of the year both in 1999 and 2000. Hussein Chalayan's collection of jackets explores the designer's avant-garde aesthetic. Impeccably tailored blazers are cut to new proportions, while statement prints are combined with classic looks.
