Originally from the west coast of Ireland, Andrew Culloo is a womenswear designer who mainly focuses on print and color. He earned his BA in Fashion Design Womenswear from Central Saint Martins, and went on in 2016 to win the Moncler Award. This helped fund his MA at The Royal College of Art. He has experience of working in the contemporary art world, which becomes the context for his design work – constantly influenced by the merging of art and fashion. Three words that sum up Andrew’s process are playful, sculptural, and experimental.
Art Darlings was born out of my experience of working in an art gallery, and seeing these vibrant women in all their glory coming to the openings of every new show. Throughout history unconventional women have thrived in the art and fashion world, such as Peggy Guggenheim, Paloma Picasso, and of course Diana Vreeland. Today we have Valeria Napoleone and Katy Hessel who channel a similar energy. These are the two worlds that I adore, and these are the women who I want to create for and dress in the future.
