The House Of Nines
DESIGNER NAMES: Ross Paul Keenan and Shamrez Marawat
BACKGROUND: Ross studied a BA in fashion design at East London University whilst training on Savile Row; Sham studied a BA in Fashion Management at London College of Fashion.
IDEAL CLIENT: A modern man who believes in uncompromising artistry. He seeks the same enrichment in attire as he seeks in life itself.
TRADEMARK PIECE: For the SS14 collection it would have to be the 'Shard Jacket' based on London's iconic Shard building which has been at the crux of our inspiration.
THE COLLECTIONS: “We looked at perceptions of the future, both bleak and utopian and how visions are displayed in film, architecture and landscapes. In particular we used the Shard as a strong reference point when executing our lines and form.”
IMPACT OF LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN: “London Collections: Men has put us on the map of British Menswear.”
FIRST PIECE OF MENSWEAR DESIGNED: “We began developing the block for our tailored jacket long before anything else so naturally it would be our House Jacket"
London Collections: Men
