Craig is an award-winning textile print designer with a passion for colour and illustration, combining his fine art talents with his love of fashion and textiles.
Using traditional, contemporary and digital printing techniques, Craig transforms his illustrations into beautiful fashion and interior pieces.
Each piece of Craig’s is designed, printed, made and hand-finished in Britain. Every piece in Craig’s collection is completely unique and can truly not be found on the high street.
Craig has always been inspired by nature and the discoveries he has made whilst researching natural subjects such as flowers, insects or birds has led to his own colour investigations. He draws and paints his own shapes, textures and patterns into each piece influenced by what he finds in his study of moths, butterflies etc.
Craig graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Fashion from the University of Northampton in 2008. During his studies his work was regularly exhibited and selected to represent the University in a number of competitions, including Clothes Show Live, New Designers and Graduate Fashion Week; where his collection was shown in the Gala show for the Zandra Rhodes Textile Award.
Craig has also received several industry awards, such as Scotland’s Trade Fair – Best Product Award 2012, the Society of Dyers and Colourists Award in recognition of his distinct and fresh use of colour and the Leigh Cooke Colour in Design Award.
With strong links with fashion, Craig has been able to work on exciting live projects with the British Leather Council, Drapers and Textile Lecture Days alongside Zandra Rhodes.
