London Fashion Week recently kicked off and designer Maximilian Davis held an official spot on the calendar to showcase his Spring/Summer 2022 collection. After joining the prominent talent incubator, Fashion East, in the fourth quarter of last year, Davis was granted a spot in their runway show this season. The distinguished alumni roster of Fashion East includes designers Martine Rose, Grace Wales Bonner, Mowalola, Jonathan Anderson, and many more – leaving Davis to continue the admirable design legacy.
Davis was raised in Manchester, England and grew up in a family that shared an equal love for fashion. His father and sister both studied fashion design before moving on in their careers and his mother was a model in the 70’s. At the wee age of 6, Davis learned how to use a sewing machine from his grandmother, which set up the young designer to be inspired by his surroundings from that point forward.
