Hamish Morrow was born in South Africa in 1968 of
British parents. Later on, he came to England and studied at Central St. Martins College of Art and the
Royal College of Art, in London.
Hamish Morrow later continued his training with John Bartlett for Byblos in Milan and then decided to start
his own label in 2000. In addition to his designs which remained under his own name, he is now designing for
Ferre in Milan, despite the fact that his own ideas are quite far away
from Gianfranco Ferre's more architectural spirit.
Hamish Morrow made his grand debut at the London Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2001, having already had a full
page descriptive editorial in an issue of the American Vogue fashion magazine.
Morrow's signature clothes are garments such as black lace dresses, which are romantic, sheer and remarkably
grand, in the best British tradition. Hamish Morrow does not put a lining in his dresses so ladies can usually wear
slips beneath them. He sold quite a lot of his lace dresses from Barney's store in New York.
Hamish Morrow's fall collection included other clothes such as a flannel coats with a huge rose-like ruffles of
organza, and sharply tailored crystal-sprinkled tweed jackets with floral ruffles poised on the shoulder. The
intricacy of the pieces and the craftsmanship involved, place Hamish Morrow's creations somewhere between
ready-to-wear and haute couture.
