About Grace Wales Bonner

Wales Bonner launched her label in 2014, after graduating from Central Saint Martins. Established as a menswear brand, Wales Bonner's soulful tailoring soon expanded to womenswear. In 2015, she was awarded Emerging Menswear Designer at the British Fashion Awards. In 2016, following her first solo runway presentation, Ezekiel, she received the LVMH Young Designer Prize. In 2019, Wales Bonner was invited by Maria Grazia Chiuri to collaborate with Dior to reinterpret their New Look silhouette for the Resort 2020 collection; shortly afterwards, she won the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund.

Informed by broad research encompassing critical theory, musical composition, literature, and history, Wales Bonner embraces a multiplicity of perspectives, proposing a distinct notion of luxury via a hybrid of European and Afro-Atlantic approaches. In January 2019, she presented her first institutional exhibition, A Time for New Dreams, at London's Serpentine Galleries.
