Peckham based designer, (Simon) Christopher Waller, creates beautiful, contemporary womenswear inspired by the effortless structure of sportswear. A combination of luxurious fabrics, colour blocking and considered prints, creates a collection fit for any modern woman to take her wardrobe from work to cocktails.

Graduating from the University of East London six years ago, Waller went into menswear where he perfected design as a craft, a real reflection in his current work in his womenswear collection. Working with fashion business consultant Mark Dodds, the Christopher Waller model is quite a rarity in the fashion industry. Positioning themselves as a creative agency, Waller not only shows his collection as a high end brand but provides consultancy work to fellow brands. Like many these days, Waller and team have discovered the importance of creating a hybrid brand with a unique selling point, making them incomparable to many other, much older, high end labels.
