Hot tipped by ELLE by as a “Rising Star” David Longshaw former Fashion Scout Ones To Watch, represents a new breed of fashion talent lending his skills in illustration and storytelling to his work. Launched in 2010, the designer established his label with a strong place in the industry.
David’s latest venture introduces the story of Maude and Hector who are off to Sotheby’s and to be worn at the “animal ball” which Prince Charles is hosting.
The illustrations and masks show “cult” icon and loveable Maude the fashion mouse made by David whilst at CSM, Editor-in-Chief of Maudezine and creative director Hector who bumps into Elephant friends Erin and Edward on their way to the Animal Ball. Vibrant and fun prints are featured on the elephant masks as Maude and Hector wearing David Longshaw (of course!)get a lift to the ball.
A graduate of Central Saint Martin’s and RCA, David was awarded the BFC/ELLE Talent Launch Pad and has since gone on to be featured on Vogue.com and Fashion156 and using his unique imagination to create a weekly comic strip “Francesca & Arthur” for Vogue Italia.
