Angus Kirkby is a young, dynamic designer from England. After studying at renowned fashion school Istituto Marangoni's Shanghai campus, he has established his eponymous brand in Shanghai and London. Having spent his life growing up between both cities he aims to build a bridge between the two cultures by bringing British savoir faire to the fast-paced and ever-evolving world that is China.
In a palette of powder blues, pinks, creams and silver, the collection, entitled "consuelo" was inspired by the 9th Duchess of Marlborough, Consuelo Vanderbilt. Chinese silks, hand applied ostrich feathers and hand-pleated tulle are mainstays within the collection; along with beetle wing embellishments and velvet coated corset bones.
