British fashion designers

From Westwood to McCartney

British fashion has an international reputation for being eccentric, thought provoking and boldly innovative, and British designers and fashion houses are renowned worldwide for their cutting edge styles.

If you want to know who's who in the world of British fashion, then take a look at this section.

Alexander McQueen

The late, great Lee 'Alexander' McQueen was a maverick designer known for his unconventional work much loved by celebrities like Lady Gaga and Rihanna. Classic McQueen designs include "bumsters" that spawned a worldwide trend for low slung jeans. Trained in London's Savile Row, his clothes are beautifully made and styled. His Alexander McQueen store is going strong.


Aquascutum is a fine example of British style and was worn by Sir Winston Churchill himself. In recent times this brand has been given a revamp, with the womenswear collection being modernised and the accessories range expanded. The new Aquascutum collection has a much younger, high fashion feel, which has wide appeal.


One of the most high profile British brands, Burberry has been imitated worldwide, but there are very few designs as famous as the Burberry check. Now a high fashion leader with the Prorsum label, Burberry will always be most famous for its classic trench coat.
