About Julien Macdonald

Julien Macdonald OBE studied Fashion Knitwear at the University of Brighton and received his MA at the Royal College of Art in London.

Soon after the success of his RCA graduation show in 1996, his talent caught the attention of Lagerfield at Chanel and he was appointed Head Designer of Knitwear at Chanel as well as for the iconic designer's eponymous label Lagerfield from 1996 to 1998.

Macdonald launched his own label in 1998 with 'Mermaids', a static presentation of his designs styled by Isabella Blow and there began his reputation as a leading British fashion designer whose high octane and glamorous designs were soon to be coveted by international stars such as Kate Beckinsale, Beyonce, Kristen Stewart, Madonna, Liv Tyler, Heidi Klum, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Karen Elson, Katy Perry, Naomi Campbell, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus to name but a few.
