PATRICK MCDOWELL: a sustainable fashion powerhouse

A driving force in reinventing luxury fashion and reducing the global impact of the fashion industry

Patrick McDowell, Liverpool born designer, is captivating the fashion industry just months after finishing his degree. Since graduating from Central Saint Martins with a BA in Womenswear earlier this year, Patrick has been turning heads ever since. From gracing the cover of the September Issue of Elle UK to being featured in publications including Vogue Italia, Dazed and L’Official USA, to becoming a favourite of singers Rita Ora and M.I.A on and off stage, Patrick is making his name known in the fashion industry.

 

Sustainability is at the core of Patrick’s practice, as he strives to reinvent luxury through a sustainable mindset. Crafted from reclaimed fabrics, organic yarns, and ethically produced materials, his pieces are designed and made in England. He is a strong advocate for reducing fashion’s global impact through designing with moral practice.

Even before this, Patrick gained the support of industry heavy weights, as his final collection from Central Saint Martins quickly gained sponsorship from the British Fashion Council, Swarovski, Burberry and Oakley. Now, at only 23 years old, McDowell is launching his namesake label with an expanded version of his highly praised inaugural collection.
