Craig Green

Designer, Craig Green

Distinguished by his textile development, he has carved out a unique position amongst London's most innovative talents.


British designer Craig Green has won over legions of influential industry fans since Autumn/Winter 2013, when he first showed at London Fashion Week Men's as part of Topman and Fashion East’s MAN initiative. Although Green’s designs are imbued with his fierce commitment to concept and challenging forms, the Londoner’s true genius lies his ability to parlay his cerebral inspirations into unique yet wearable clothing, often with utilitarian edge.

Green’s star has continued to ascend over the succeeding seasons, leading to significant, industry-wide renown. The designer held his first solo show in the Spring/Summer 2015 season at London Fashion Week Men's, which BoF's Editor-at-Large Tim Blanks  described as “a fashion moment,” in his review. Blanks told BoF, “Craig Green is fearless in his idealism. His clothes are grand gestures, but they're poetic and romantic too. People sobbed at his spring show. Fashion craves that emotion.” It is not only the fashion press that has backed Green’s creativity. Influential retailers 10 Corso Como, IT and Comme des Garçons are all stockists. The latter granted Green its London store’s much-sought after window installation space.

Green completed a BA Fashion Hons degree in print, before completing Central Saint Martins' internationally respected MA Fashion course, under the late, great Louise Wilson ’s mentorship.

Green's designs have been featured in a range of exhibits including the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s "China: Through the Looking Glass" in 2015, and 2018’s "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic imagination." Green’s accolades include British Menswear Designer at the Fashion Awards 2016 and 2017, the BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund prize 2016 and Emerging Menswear Designer at the British Fashion Awards 2014.
