“Imagine Carine Roitfeld seen through the lens of Helmut Newton and you’re somewhere close to Hannah Marshall’s version of contemporary dressing.” - Sarah Mower (London Fashion Week ‘Letter from London’)

At only 26, British designer Hannah Marshall’s ascent from fresh-faced fashion graduate, to internationally acclaimed young designer has been nothing short of meteoric. A risingstar of the fashion firmament, Hannah Marshall has produced five collections under her eponymous label. All have signaled the beginning of what is to become the reinvention of the Little Black Dress, with Erin O’Connor loaning the infamous Trapeze Dress to the prestigious Little Black Dress exhibition at Zandra Rhodes’ Fashion & Textile Museum in London.February 2007 saw the introduction of her distinctive AW07 ‘Quiet Noise’ collection which debuted at the On|Off exhibition, followed by SS08 ‘VoID’ in September 2007. For AW08 ‘Code Black’ was shown as part of New Gen at London Fashion Week, as was “Power Architect for SS09, and most recently Hannah successfully received the highly acclaimed New Generation sponsorship for the third season and unveiled the much anticipated AW09 collection ‘Armour’ at The Exhibition at February’s London Fashion Week. A contemporary luxury British brand synonymous with edgy restraint, encapsulates powerful, body conscious and dynamic wonder silhouettes that are engineered with precision and control from high octane mix of contrasting fabrics, such as signature leather with caviar-like stingray, luxurious stretch velvet and taught elastic against lustrous silks create an enticing blend. Black takes the main stage, with an offering of minimalist colours each season. Marshall dexterously incorporates signature tactile Braille messages into her collections,which stems from her curiosity of the developing fusion of clothing and communication, which are centred on the iconic LBD. Coupled with this is the intention to evolve a search for new and innovative aesthetics.Gaining a First Class degree at Colchester School of Art & Design in 2003, Hannah has since established herself internationally as a designer, an entrepreneur and the face of one of the most immediately coveted luxury brands to launch in recent years. Her talent and experience with leading fashion designers attracted the attentions of Creative Pioneer Programme to come from NESTA (The National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts). At the age of 21, Hannah was the youngest of 30 young entrepreneurs to receive personal and business training to transform their ideas into a business. Hannah is supported by The Centre for Fashion Enterprise and has been recognised by organisations such as the Gen Art in New York, Channel 4 and recently New Generation sponsored by TOPSHOP at London Fashion Week. Internationally recognised, New Generation support has helped launch the careers of some of Britain’s top designers, including Alexander McQueen, Matthew Williamson and Julien Macdonald.Press coverage highlights include; British VOGUE, Style.com, VOGUE Italia, American ELLE, Grazia, FinancialTimes, The Independent, Gap Press and Japanese ELLE and more. Hannah Marshall® is made in England.
