BACKGROUND: Raeburn graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2006 with an MA in womenswear. He freelanced as a pattern cutter before setting up his own studio, and later his eponymous label. Raeburn became known for his creative reinterpretation of military fabrics. He comments “The ‘Remade’ ethos will always lie at the heart of the brand and as we grow and develop it remains the foundation of our work, reminding us to always be resourceful and experimental”.
SIGNATURES: “Desirability, detail, function and fun.”
IDEAL CLIENT: “I like to think I appeal to a broad range of customers but specifically those who want something different, great fashion that embodies sustainable intelligence.”
TRADEMARK PIECE: “The Pop Out Parka. I take the iconic and trademark shape of the parka and re-develop it into two jackets that can function together or separately through their innovative cut and technique.”
Christopher Raeburn won the Emerging Talent – Menswear award at the British Fashion Awards 2011
