Simon Christopher Waller graduated from the University of East London, where his Final Year collection was shortlisted for the Graduate Fashion Week Gold Award Final. As a result of this he was quickly snapped up by London based menswear designer John Richmond to work as his assistant.
London womenswear brand Christopher Waller was launched in July 2010 by Simon Christopher Waller. The brand is now in its third season, which will be shown off schedule at London Fashion Week 2011.
The current AW11 collection has been very well received by the press and buyers and is currently stocked in 3 outlets in London and one online stockist.
The Christopher Waller Spring Summer 2012 collection “A Shot Across the Bows” continues to provide women with clean lines, block colouring and luxe fabrics. Core inspirations were taken from the Mediterranean and the glamour of the Côte d'Azur in the late 80’s/ early 90’s. These influences have been brought back to London to give the collection an air of effortless sophistication, translated through Christopher Waller’s minimal and wearable handwriting.
AW12 will go back to the darker routes of AW11 with much more textured fabrics and structured garments. The mood board attached as a photo on this profile conveys this collection in advance of actual shots.
