Since founding critically acclaimed label Meadham Kirchhoff in 2006, designers Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff have gained recognition for their opulent, iconoclastic designs and theatrical catwalk productions. Despite the relatively fledging status of the label, the celebrated designers have been awarded a series of industry accolades such as the ‘Emerging Talent Ready-to-Wear’ award at the British Fashion Awards in 2010. The pair were also nominated for the British Fashion Award’s inaugural ‘New Establishment’ award in 2012. Initially launched as a womenswear label, the duo unveiled their first menswear collection at the London Collections: Men for Spring/Summer 2013, with a ‘static’ showcase that gained rave reviews from publications such as Vogue, i-D and The New York Times.

The duo first met whilst pursuing Bachelor’s degrees in design – Meadham in womenswear and Kirchhoff men’s – from London’s Central Saint Martins . Initially focused on menswear label Benjamin Kirchhoff, the two secured a presentation at the first Fashion East showcase in 2005. The next year, they debuted a womenswear range, securing sponsorship through the BFC and Topshop's NEWGEN programme. Their first presentation at London Fashion Week was for the Autumn/Winter 2007 season and a year later held their first catwalk collection.

Since launch, Meadham and Kirchhoff have collaborated on a number of capsule collections for Topshop, Amazon and Nicholas Kirkwood and have also designed limited edition nail transfers for Nail Rock.
