New Designers | Luke Azzopardi | The Young Artistic Couturier

 The Gozitan Couture Artist | A modern Traditional Canvas
Luke Azzopardi is a young and very talented artist and couture designer from Gozo, MaltaHe exploded on the local Maltese fashion scene, and noone can dare to question why because his talent is obvious.
His one of a kind pieces are inspired by art. In his prints he uses paintings as sources and are modified accordingly, translating the colours and motifs onto fabric using laser printing. He has been using this technique and printing with these motifs since 2012.
 His latest collections were galvanized by the various images from the Sacra Conversazione - Madonna & Child renditions. 

This comes to no surprise because Luke is currently reading a degree in History of Art and before that he studied performance design and practice at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. 
Now for his next collection, which will probably be the Autumn/Winter 2013, he is researching stained glass during the Art Deco period and Egyptian Revival Periods. 
Luke Azzopardi  "I want to transpose whatever I develop onto Gothicised and ecclesiastic silhouettes"

He custom makes garments upon order both for men and women according to what his client wants, but remaining true to his ideas, concepts and his brand.

This very young designer has talent; his passion and knowledge about fashion and art  are producing beautiful and one of kind pieces - a modern traditional canvas. 

I will be ordering my first dress for the winter season soon.

  1. Reminds me of Givenchy's Spring/Summer 13 collection:


    Coincidence? I think not.

    1. Dear Anonymous, if you see it similar maybe to you, but Luke Azzopardi has been doing this since 2012, since his studies at St. Martins, he deserves credit. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and i respect yours. Thanks for your comment

  2. ...and anyway, those of us who only find it in us to criticize, rarely sign their names... I wonder why.
