Born and raised in London, fashion designer Louisa Parris graduated from Central Saint Martins, where she received the prestigious Womenswear Collection Award. Specialized in eveningwear, Parris launched her 2011 collection of beautiful scarves and funky cocktail hats. I am also loving the illustrations that her mother Cherrill Parris-Fox did to illustrate her collection! See more below.
Parris launched her design career with experience at DKNY, Mulberry, Gharani Strok and Ghost. Since then, she has been employed as a designer for labels on both sides of the Atlantic and has worked on costumes for film, theater and opera.
For the past few years, Parris has split her time between London and San Francisco. As well as designing for her own label, she was a visiting tutor on the Academy of Art’s Fashion BFA & MFA programs.
