Gareth Pugh Costume designer


Gareth Pugh was born in Sunderland, England. He joined the Fashion Design section of Central Saint Martins, from which he graduated in 2003. In 2005, he created the house Gareth Pugh and presented his first collection during the London Fashion Week. In 2006, he walked in the official London Fashion Week. His avant-garde creations are very successful in the fashion world. He distinguishes himself by proposing atypical models, playing with shapes, volumes and materials, such as leather, vinyl or latex. In 2008, he received the ANDAM Prize (National Association for the Development of Fashion Arts) and presented his first Parisian collection. The following year, he created his first menswear collection. His shows were on the Parisian calendar for six years, before a return in 2015 to London Fashion Week where he celebrated the tenth anniversary of his label. Vogue Runway magazine called his Spring/Summer 2016 collection "perhaps his best collection ever." Over the past decade, Gareth Pugh has worked with some of the most innovative and popular artists of our time (such as Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna) and with renowned institutions around the world, such as for the Manus x Machina exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts in New York. He also works for theater and dance: most notably, he created the costumes for Wayne McGregor's ballet Aleas Sands at the Palais Garnier in December 2015. He is represented by Karla Otto and CXA New York.
