Background

Mark graduated with an MA in Fashion Design (Fashion Womenswear) from Central Saint Martin's College of Art & Design. Since graduating, he has exhibited work at London Fashion Week and successfully worked as a womenswear and knitwear designer on a variety of projects for brands such as Chloe, Alexander McQueen, Warner Bros. Records & London Records. A finalist in the Lancôme Colour Design Awards, Mark’s work has featured in publications such as Vogue (UK, Japan & Taiwan), The Guardian, Tank Magazine, Glamour Magazine and ID Magazine.

Mark’s current research repositions the body and material at the centre of the design process to generate multi-dimensional objects through the physical and technological interactions between the designer, body, dress, materiality and time. Through designing physical and technological body-dress assemblages, Mark’s research seeks to intervene in the ready-to-wear design process.
