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 5 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 a up and coming talent in ID Magazine 200th Edition lead to Stuarts 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 with the follow up launching in Autumn 2017.
