At just 23 years old, Patrick McDowell is captivating the fashion industry only months after graduating from Central Saint Martins with a degree in Womenswear. From the onset the sustainably focused designer gained the support of industry heavyweight with his final collection at university gaining sponsorship from the British Fashion Council, Swarovski, Burberry and Oakley.
A strong advocate for reducing fashion’s global impact, sustainability is at the core of McDowell’s practice. Each piece is crafted in England from reclaimed fabrics, organic yarns and ethically produced materials. McDowell is a passionate supporter of creative education and is committed to highlighting the importance of this kind of learning for all, at any age and has tutored at institutions across the UK.
