Luke Anthony Rooney is a London based womenswear designer who likes to explore the use of texture, colour and surface design. His textile expressionism is offset with an expert cut. Complex panelling is featured heavily within the brand.
His work is an exploration of silhouette, form and application, taking inspiration from gaiety, frivolity and a sense of fantasy. His designs connect considered construction and technique with an exuberant and joyous spirit. Mixing hand techniques with creative cutting and stitching, the designs take on different dimensions.
For AW17 Luke received fabric sponsorship from Christian Lacroix and collaborated with Andrew Logan on jewellery. For SS17 Luke collaborated with Andrew Logan on creating headpieces for the collection.
