Innovation and reclamation is at the heart of Christopher Raeburn’s fashion.
This week’s Weekly Want is Christopher Raeburn’s Map Dress cut from reclaimed silk from the 1930s!
We love the romanticism and yet edginess of this shift dress. Plus, who doesn’t love a good map?
All of Raeburn’s garments are produced in house in his London studio and he is dedicated to transparency and ecological awareness.
After graduating from the Royal College of Art in London he quickly became known for his jackets made from reused military parachutes–mixing creative design, dead stock fabric and practicality. “We have worked with parachutes, wool battledress jackets, fire trousers, ponchos, tents…the list goes on,” says Raeburn.
Today he is a key player in thoughtful fashion, and continues to bring “sustainable design to a main-stream fashion audience and presents a new definition of luxury with integrity.”
Certainly high street fashion, Christopher Raeburn is a designer to admire, and this dress is tops the week’s drool-worthy Weekly Want.
