Cyprus-born Hussein Chalayan launched his self-titled label in 1994. After graduating from the prestigious Central St Martins in 1993, the designer's work instantly made waves in the fashion scene, with luxury retailer Browns quickly snapping up his graduate collection. The brand's eponymous line has won Chalayan a number of accolades including British Designer of the year both in 1999 and 2000, due to his impeccable eye for combining science, technology and high fashion with his avant-garde aesthetic. Renowned for innovative design, beautiful tailoring and draping, Chalayan's clothing collection champions an elegant, minimalistic aesthetic. Exquisitely cut jackets, sleek dresses and luxe separates are key to the designer's deeply inventive ready-to-wear collection.
