About the designer
James Castle is a recent graduate of Central Saint Martins who enjoys using traditional techniques in fabric manipulation, print and appliqué and bringing these skills into a more contemporary context.
With experience at the prestigious house of Alexander McQueen under Sarah Burton, his enthusiasm for the smashing together of tradition and modernity was honed and became an important part of his process.
“I am so thirsty to learn, No one ever finishes learning and it’s through that that I enjoy a really fluid inspiration and design process.”
He now enjoys making custom couture garments for private clients and working as a freelance designer.
