Thomas Tait

The London-based designer first made waves in 2010 when, at 22, he became the youngest student to earn an MA in womenswear from the prestigious Central Saint Martins. He's been a major draw at London Fashion Week ever since.

Born in Canada, Tait grew up in a sleepy suburb outside Montreal, Canada. Thomas completed a three-year technical diploma at Collège LaSalle in July 2008 and then enrolled in the women’s wear MA program at London’s Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design. His tight use of shape and silhouette is paired with a modern refinement for clothing that is nearly athletic in its approach to luxury. The volumes catch space, upheld by gravity, while the lines stay sleek and somewhat austere.

Tait received the inaugural Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize, after consideration from judges such as Manolo Blahnik and Right Hon. In May 2014, Thomas won the inaugural LVMH Young Designer Prize.
