Karl Donoghue

Yorkshire born designer, Karl Donoghue moved to London in 1991 to study fashion at Ravensbourne College of Design. Soon after graduating in 1994 with a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree, and with the success of his graduation collection, a shearling accessory range was launched under his own label Karl Donoghue in 1995. Immediately the label attracted the interest of international buyers and press. The brand established itself internationally and became synonymous for using the finest shearlings, furs and leathers to produce accessories. Buyer demand led to the introduction of womens clothing for Winter 2000.
Style queen, Trinny Woodall was soon to give the label her approval with many celebrities and society ladies to follow. Elizabeth Hurley, Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham and Geri Halliwell can all be found wearing pieces from the collection.
The continued support and interest from many overseas customers resulted in the label being short-listed for the British Apparel Export Award for a second time. The 2001 award for womenswear was presented to Karl Donoghue by HRH the Princess Royal in May 2002.
Karls passion and knowledge of skins has allowed him to work in collaboration with a number of British designers including Katherine Hamnett & Caroline Charles. Joseph bought the first clothing range, which out sold his own label so invited Karl to design for his collection.
Last year saw a new creative partnership with Karl joining forces with designer Ann-Louise Roswald to launch a range for winter 2003. The joint label was well received and continues with a new collection of appliqud garments and accessories. Winter 2004 sees the launch of another collaboration, this time with William Sharp creating swarovski crystal designs for a range of shearlings.
The Karl Donoghue collection can be found in many prestigious outlets around the world.
