Art School is a unisex label based in London, focused on redefining the limitations of ready to wear gendered fashion. Directed by the creative partnership of Eden Loweth and Tom Barratt, the label is informed by the designers’ backgrounds as Fashion and Art Criticism graduates respectively. They have worked with some of the most prominent emerging designers of the times including LVMH prize winner Grace Wales Bonner.
Art School is a platform for the designers to express their collective ideas both in art and design using luxury fashion as a communicative tool to explore contemporary queerness. The label is informed by the founders and their friend’s non-binary gender identities.
Debuting at London Fashion Week Men’s in AW17 with the support of Fashion East, Art School showcased a performative presentation in collaboration with the Theo Adams Company featuring a cast of friends and loved ones. SS18 saw the designers elevate onto the catwalk with the support of the Fashion East Man initiative.
Art School aims to celebrate the idiosyncratic individuality of queer style.
“Joining the CFE programme is a fantastic next step for Art School as a viable business. The support and guidance provided will enable us to grow and develop in the right way for us throughout all aspects of our business.” – Eden Loweth
