Raeburn Re-Appropriating

Article by Camilla Doig Lorentzen

Christopher Raeburn, a graduate from London's Royal College of Arts, is fast becoming known for his pioneering work towards the future of ethical design. Christopher utilises re-appropriated military fabrics to create garments that are functional, intelligent and meticulously crafted.

The fabrics come from the UK, Germany and the Czech Republic, and also from the former East Germany. The clothes are all made in Britain.
Christoper graduated in 2006, and won the Ethical Fashion Forum's Innovation competition in 2008. His collection was a set of eight parachute pieces, and was shown at London Fashion Week the same year. Since 2008, Christopher has won many competitions and done a collaboration with established menswear designer Tim Soar. His great sense for detail, fabric and design is making him one of the most innovative designers of our age.
