London-based British menswear designer Carolyn Massey had no sooner completed her 2005 MA at the Royal College of Art than stylists were queuing up to borrow her creations. With personal orders flooding in, she launched her eponymously titled label Carolyn Massey just a year later.
She presents her debut solo show this year at London Fashion Week, and is also be exhibiting in Paris during Mens’ Fashion Week in conjunction with EasternBlock.
Carolyn is the first menswear designer to have a solo show sponsored by Topman following the success of her seasonal diffusion line for the brand.
An exhibition focusing on Carolyn's research for her autumn/winter 2009 collection will open in Clerkenwell in April.
