Determined to inject expression and variety into the menswear market, Lauren Broxton is a creator of bespoke artisanal pieces built to stand the test of time.

Interested in how an individual’s environment shapes their attitudes and values, she takes inspiration in the everyday and ordinary with intent to transform it into something extraordinary. Forming deep, interpersonal relationships is crucial to her design process, taking the time to understand her subjects and their needs.

Whilst completing her BA at Birmingham City University, she was encouraged to stay true to her roots in Fine Art, developing a rich aesthetic that continuously crosses disciplines.

Graduate Collection ‘Locals’ is both celebration and exploration of her origins in Walsall, renowned for its leather trade. Created entirely from donated leather offcuts, it takes inspiration from traditional working class environments such as Boxing Gyms and the Pub.
