One of my favourite designers at the moment has to be Markus Lupfer. His range of fabulous sequined knitwear and quirky slogan t-shirts are fun and irreverent, and are beloved by celebrity fashionistas ranging from Rihanna to Olivia Palermo. His golden pear jumper is at the top of my current fashion wish list. So I am very excited by the news that Markus will be coming to Harvey Nichols in Birmingham on Wednesday 23rd March for a very special show.
Harvey Nichols will be hosting a very special trunk show of the Markus Lupfer Spring/Summer 2011 collection next week. This is following on from the designers first menswear collection being unveiled exclusively by Harvey Nichols this season. The trunk show will enable attendees to have an intimate look at the new collection, with pieces discussed and explained by the man himself.
This is a not-to-be-missed experience for all fans of fashion. Markus Lupfer is quite simply a style genius. He was described by Alison Whelen, the co-founder of the Fashion Business Club, describes him as “…the sequin genius, highly colourful and charming…”. His eponymous label was launched in 1998, with a focus on luxurious knitwear. Since then, his stunning embellished knitwear and playful handwritten slogan t-shirts have become part of the celebrity style uniform. Lily Allen has been pictured wearing his ‘Love’ t-shirt, whilst Claudia Schiffer is often pictured wearing his long jumper style dresses. Sarah Harding, Diana Vickers, Beyoncé, Madonna, Rihanna, Leighton Meister, Kim Kardashian and Olivia Palermo are all fans of the designer, and have been photographed wearing his designs. He has collaborated successfully with Topshop on the High Street, and with designer brands such as Mulberry. In short, Markus Lupfer is fashion royalty.
