The 26-year-old Trinidadian-British fashion designer Maximilian Davis is named Salvatore Ferragamo‘s new Creative Director.
I am deeply honoured to be joining Ferragamo, and grateful for the opportunity to build on the rich and profound heritage of the house. Ferragamo represents a dedication to timeless elegance and sophistication that I find incredibly inspiring. I’m looking forward to articulating my vision, elevated by the codes of Italian craftsmanship, quality and innovation. – Maximilian Davis
Born in Manchester, Maximilian has graduated from London College of Fashion and worked with designers like Grace Wales Bonner, Mowalola, Asai, and Supriya Lele. The designer founded his eponymous brand in 2020 and attracted immediate international recognition. His debut collection was revealed at the London talent incubator Fashion East’s Spring/Summer 2021 show. His work got him shortlisted as a semi-finalist for the 2022 LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers.
The designer’s Trinidadian-Jamaican origins are an important part of his identity and a strong inspiration for his work.
Maximilian Davis’ confident sharp elegance, innate sophistication, sense of color, and culturally hybrid point of view stimulate interest among key international media, retailers, and celebrities.
I am delighted to welcome Maximilian at the House of Ferragamo. The clarity of his vision together with the level of execution and his powerful aesthetic make him one of the most brilliant talents of his generation. His work is defined by elegance, refined sensuality, and constant commitment to quality. Through his lens of contemporary sensibility, he will write a new, exciting chapter for this house built on a heritage of creativity, craftsmanship, sophistication, and outstanding human values. – Marco Gobbetti, Chief Executive Officer
Maximilian Davis’ own label will be put on hold as he officially begins work as Ferragamo’s creative director on March 16.
