Christopher Shannon

Fashion Designer

Christopher Shannon is a British fashion designer. Upon gaining a scholarship on the Central Saint Martins MA Menswear course from Professor Louise Wilson (the first of its kind in ten years), Shannon moved to London from his native Liverpool, having previously worked as design assistant to Richard James.

His graduate collection featured collaborative pieces with sponsors including Eastpak and Levi's, and fabrics sponsored by Calvin Klein. He has reworked shell suits and sports pieces in new fabrications, with a nod to Northern style and market stall bootlegging, incorporating reversible elements: something he describes as 'refined scallyism'.

After graduation, Shannon was awarded a place on schedule at London Fashion Week at the Topman-sponsored MAN show. Showing for three seasons, the designer then moved on to the prestigious NewGen Men scheme for A/W 10. In 2008, he took home the Dunhill Menswear Award for his designs that over the years have been featured in GQ Style, Vogue Homme Japan and Dazed.

Christopher Shannon has collaborated with other fashion creatives, including designers Kim Jones and William Baker, as well as the late jeweller and stylist Judy Blame, who styled his A/W 14 collection with cash-themed chain jewellery.
