Hailing from the prestigious Central Saint Martins School of Fashion, John Alexander Skelton is a designer whose moda operandi is emblematic of the new guard now taking control of fashion. The menswear designer is highly inspired by heritage garments of the old world and the detail that went into their construction. Working with rare materials sourced almost entirely within his native land of the UK, Skelton has developed an esoteric world of artisanal beauty. The young designer avoids the ecommerce market in an effort to force physical connection between his customers and his garments. He sees the consumptive nature of fashion as something to be conquered and through many practices, like his domestic sourcing, use of vintage fabrics, and natural dyes, is taking the first steps to do so.
