8F8DD369-B12B-4DF9-B522-79ABF21B87ABBuilding partnerships in London and Paris, David demonstrated that his combined skills as an illustrator and a talented designer make his brand one of the most exciting emerging labels to follow.

Firstly David partnered with MATCHESFASHION.COM on a series of initiatives to celebrate London Fashion Week including the re-launch of The Style Report, the bi-annual print publication from MATCHESFASHION.COM.

David worked with MATCHESFASHION to create three unique fashion week window displays for its central London stores. Inspired by David’s illustrated fashion characters, the windows featured ‘Maude the mouse (editor-in-chief of Maudezine) and co’ dressed in key pieces from the stores A/W 2013 collections. Maude, acting as guest editor of MATCHESFASHION’s ‘The Style Report’, also popped up front row at top name LFW catwalk shows and was seen networking at Somerset House with key industry figures.

This was as an element of the partnership between MATCHESFASHION.COM and Yauatcha, to offer bespoke macaroons exclusively produced by Hakkasan Group’s Executive Pastry Chef Graham Hornigold. With designs based on key Autumn/Winter 2013 trends, guests enjoyed the macaroons whilst David created his London Fashion Week sketches onto Yauatcha’s windows.

In the final element of the partnership, David designed an exclusive printed silk scarf (right) featuring illustrations of Maude and her team which are available exclusively to buy from MATCHESFASHION.COM.

After the excitement of London, David Longshaw, Maude and Co took the Eurostar to Paris Fashion Week, where the brand was invited to participate in a One Night Only Party at the W Hotel, Paris.Maude was seen mingling with fashionista’s drinking signature cocktails whilst the party guests admired the evening’s hostesses wearing key pieces from the David Longshaw S/S 14 collection.
