Christopher Kane is the London label challenging fashion ideologies and notions of beauty since 2006. The ordinary is transformed into the extraordinary when collections that start with autobiographical inspirations are realised using innovative techniques. 

Founded by brother and sister Christopher and Tammy Kane, the label launched following Christopher’s award-winning Central Saint Martin’s MA show. 

Each season is diverse yet distinctly Christopher Kane with sensuality, creativity and wit ever present. 

Winner of the Vogue Fashion Fund and 4 British Fashion Awards, including New Designer of the Year and later British Fashion Designer of the Year.

Upending expectations of luxury with playful irreverence, the label is the benchmark for those who dress to please themselves.
