Professional Biography

“The illustrative style of Stuart Mckenzie borrows from the haute couture designer - the singularity of line to express a form”- Retail Graphics

A graduate of Central St Martins, Mckenzie worked as a studio assistant at Vivienne Westwood for five years, where he would illustrate the collection as a means of communicating the theme to the rest of the studio.

A nomination by Fashion Photographer Elaine Constantine as an up-and-coming talent in ID Magazine 200th Edition lead to Stuart's first commission working with designer Peter Saville to illustrate Selfridges spring/summer in-store campaign.

Creative Fashion Illustration - How to Develop Your Own Style is Stuart McKenzie’s first book published by Bloomsbury.
