Fashion in Motion: Ozwald Boateng
Fashion in Motion is a series of live catwalk events presented at the V&A. Featuring some of the greatest designers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings catwalk couture to a wider audience by modelling it against the beautiful backdrop of the Museum.
Celebrating 20 illustrious years in fashion, the acclaimed menswear designer Ozwald Boateng has successfully united the skills of British bespoke tailoring with his own distinctive approach to menswear design and forged a new appreciation of Savile Row.
Self-taught, Boateng began tailoring at the age of 16 and in 1994 became the first Savile Row tailor to show during the International Menswear Collections in Paris. In 2003 he was appointed Creative
Director of Menswear at Givenchy further securing his dominant position on the world fashion stage.
Boateng’s attention to detail and finish are most clearly demonstrated in his superb bespoke tailoring, for which he was developed a stellar clientele, amongst them Jude Law, Jamie Foxx, Will Smith and Daniel Day Lewis.
Today Ozwald Boateng’s distinguished and award winning designs are sold and celebrated internationally and his unique approach to cut, colour and detail has created a new ‘look for men’-stylish, beautiful and sexy.
