About the Designer
Charlie is based in London, United Kingdom. She studied at UWE and graduated in 2010. Her collections are produced in United Kingdom.
Charlie May is a young British womenswear designer, currently working and living in London.
Born in Devon, in the south west of England, Charlie was raised on a farm and spent her childhood in the same family home. This has inspired her to draw inspiration from her surroundings and background, which leads her to the signature minimalist, androgynous style she has become known for.
She graduated from the University of the West of England in 2010 with a BA(hons) in Fashion Design, where she achieved the privilege of being selected for a place at Graduate Fashion Week.
Alongside studying, Charlie started her blog Girl a la Mode in 2008, this has become one of the UKs top fashion blogs and has since been featured in magazines such as Elle, Company, Grazia Italia, among others. Charlie also contributes bimonthly editorials to AOL’s My Daily.
In her final year of university Charlie worked on Louise Goldin's 2010 Spring/Summer collection.
After moving to London, she started working for Thomas Tait, assisting him for two seasons until pursuing her own label.
Having achieved her debut collection presentation for SS12 and successfully launching her label as a young British designer, she is now working on expanding her label and going into production with seasonal ready-to-wear collections.
Charlie is now represented by HPR LONDON.
