Christopher Shannon Menswear began in 2008, with a vision of moving British menswear on from its legacy of fine tailoring and a mission to create modern, relevant garments drawing on diverse references. The label is stocked by trend- leading stores around the world, such as Harvey Nichols, IT, Opening Ceremony, 10 Corso Como and Space Mue.
Founder Christopher Shannon is a graduate of the Central St Martins MA Menswear course, where he was awarded a scholarship under the late, great Professor Louise Wilson.
Shannon was the recipient of the inaugural BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund, supported by Vertu, in June 2014. He has been shortlisted for the Emerging Menswear Award at the British Fashion Awards and the LVMH Young Fashion Designer Prize, and been involved in the innovative MAN, NEWGEN and Fashion Forward sponsorship schemes.
