Mark is a Senior Lecturer in Fashion. A practicing designer, Mark's practice-based research explores emergent design strategies and the physical and technological interactions between the designer, body, dress, materiality and time.

Mark graduated with an MA in Fashion Design (Fashion Womenswear) from Central Saint Martin's College of Art & Design.

Since graduating, he has exhibited work at London Fashion Week and successfully worked as a womenswear and knitwear designer on a variety of projects for brands such as Chloe, Alexander McQueen, Warner Bros. Records & London Records.

A finalist in the Lancôme Colour Design Awards, Mark’s work has featured in publications such as Vogue (UK, Japan & Taiwan), The Guardian, Tank Magazine, Glamour Magazine and ID Magazine.

Mark’s current research repositions the body and material at the centre of the design process to generate multi-dimensional objects through the physical and technological interactions between the designer, body, dress, materiality and time. Through designing physical and technological body-dress assemblages, Mark’s research seeks to intervene in the ready-to-wear design process.
